Betfair Casino Launches Live Dealer Games in New Jersey
Betfair Casino NJ becomes the second online casino in the state to offer Live Dealer gaming.
New Jersey is one of only three states in the US that offers some form of online gambling. Players who live or visit the state have the ability to enjoy online poker and casino gaming on a variety of platforms provided by top operators in the gambling industry. Because there are so many big names in the state offering online gaming, sites have to be competitive in order to see big business. Just this week, Betfair Casino NJ announced they are now offering Live Dealer games, making the site only the second in the state to offer such gaming options.
Live Dealer Gaming
Live Dealer games are one of the more popular ways that players enjoy taking part in online casino gaming. Basically, a studio is set up where games such as blackjack and roulette take place in a live setting. Players are then watching streamed footage as they place their bests online. It makes players feel as if they are really at the casino but are enjoying the comforts of home. In New Jersey, the first online casino to offer Live Dealer games was the Golden Nugget Casino. It seems now, Betfair and the Golden Nugget have partnered up to offer such games together.
Back in April, Betfair announced they would soon be offering live dealer games via their New Jersey site. However, a date for the games to begin was not provided. Just weeks later, Betfair is set up and ready to go. The online casino will be using the studio at the Golden Nugget to stream their live gaming options. Essentially, Betfair will be a secondary option for players who want to enjoy Live Games to do so. The two companies will be sharing player liquidity with Golden Nugget retaining one blackjack table to themselves.

Players who visit the Betfair Casino in New Jersey will have access to blackjack, baccarat and roulette gaming options. Side bets are on offer via the blackjack games including Perfect Pairs and 21+3. The games will start at 3pm each day and end at 3am, all New Jersey time of course.

The games can be played via PC and Mac as well as Android and iOS but only via smartphones.
With both the Golden Nugget and Betfair working with the same live studio and offering the same gaming, many may wonder why use one site over the other. Even though the two will offer similar offerings, they will also have their own contributions. Players will find both online casinos offer different welcome packages as well as promotions. Players can easily visit both sites to take advantage of such offers and gain access to live dealer gaming.
It is also important to note that both sites will offer promotions for live dealer gaming that may not coincide.
