NetEnt Online Gambling Comes to Atlantic City USA

Online gambling in the American state of New Jersey has been slowly gaining traction. The granting of online gambling licenses in the state has been plagued by setbacks which has slowed the growth of industry down somewhat. Regulators have been cautious handing operators an opportunity to participate in a lucrative gambling market in the USA.

The recent announcement by Net Entertainment that it will enhance its presence in the gambling market by signing a licence agreement with New Jersey casino operator Resorts Casino is welcomed news for consumers. NetEnt will apply for a transactional waiver from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement to launch its products with Resorts Casino and its Gala Coral games.

The Atlantic City Resorts Casino Hotel was the first casino hotel in Atlantic City, and was the first legal casino outside of Nevada in the United States, when it opened on May 26, 1978. The resort completed an expansion in 2004, adding the 27-story Rendezvous Tower, and renovations in 2011 converted the resort to a roaring twenties theme. Resorts announced an agreement in August 2012 for the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority, operator of the Mohegan Sun, to take over management of the casino and hotel.

Björn Krantz, NetEnt Americas managing director, commented on the announcement, “I am very pleased that we have entered into this partnership with Resorts Casino, and the agreement shows the trust and confidence that exist in our local operational and portfolio capabilities in New Jersey,”

President and chief executive officer of Resorts Casino Hotel, Mark Giannantonio, also commented on the arrangement, “It has been a really exciting few weeks for Resorts Digital Gaming’s business and the addition of these games will only strengthen our product offering further.”

The addition of more online products can help build the market potential in the Garden State and with this mobile and desktop offering it is sure to grow.
