Resorts Casino receives New Jersey's online gambling license
February 26, 2015
Resorts Casino New Jersey, one of the main icons in the Garden State, has been granted with a license from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement. The casino resort had been previously looking at the online gambling industry as many other land-based casinos have done already by entering into partnerships with online gaming operators. The resort, now with both state’s and DGE support, is going to be launching soon an online casino where players will be available to play on real money games. Last month, Resorts Casino launched its first attempt to get into the waters, a free online casino. That was just a mere strategy for Resorts Casino to announce that the real money casino site would be ready afterwards. This gave players a chance to register with the online casino and to learn more about the functioning of the site as well as the site’s promotions and contests. Wednesday of last week, Resorts Casino announced that the site would be going first through a trial period for one week. The DGE must put operators through several tests in order for NJ’s gambling market to assure security and trustworthiness to their customers. Resorts Casino is planning to offer online casino games with a wide variety on slots and table games with the most popular titles.
New Jersey’s market is now beginning to think about Resorts Casino, the only one partner in New Jersey that PokerStars relies on. They both entered into a partnership at the end of 2013, offering online poker within New Jersey. The offer for online casino games is something that Resorts Casino wants to maintain, under the signed agreement with its new partner NYX Gaming. The online poker room will continue running its operation under Amaya Gaming (PokerStars’ owner) and Resorts Casino. PokerStars is also awaiting for the DGE to get the approval for the site but once the company gets the license granted, both PokerStars and Resorts Casino will be joining forces again to launch one of the most relevant poker networks in the United States.
