Summary: Evolution Gaming has been given the final approval to launch live dealer games at the Hard Rock Online Casino in New Jersey.
Online gaming is doing well in New Jersey, with the state continuing to see massive revenue earnings month after month. The state offers a nice selection of online gaming content, including table games, poker, slots and more. Live Dealer games are also on offer but they have been limited as far as the amount of these games on offer. It was announced this week that the Hard Rock Atlantic City will now be offering live dealer content after Evolution Gaming has received the final regulatory approvals to get started.
Live Dealer including Exclusive Tables
Live dealer gaming first launched in New Jersey at the Golden Nugget via a partnership with Ezugi. The casino held the online monopoly for some time before other brands began to offer the gaming option. On Thursday, Evolution Gaming was given the regulatory approval needed to be able to begin streaming live dealer games at their studio at the Hard Rock Atlantic City casino.
Most of the live dealer games on offer by Evolution will include shared player pools. There will also be exclusive tables. The partnership between the casino and Evolution was first announced back on August 9th. Now with the launch, there are several games on offer including American Roulette with Double Zero, Automated Slingshot Roulette, Blackjack including Bet Behind and side bets, plus three exclusive tables at the Hard Rock.
The live dealer games will also include baccarat, Ultimate Texas Hold’em Poker and Three Card Poker. Director of Product, iGaming, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, Lee Terfloth, commented on the new offering by stating:
As well as building Atlantic City’s premier destination casino, we want Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City to be the number one online destination for New Jersey players. Evolution is the ideal partner to help us achieve that. They have a proven track record in multiple European markets that they are the Live Casino leaders.
Additional Evolution Partners
Evolution Gaming is no stranger to the online gambling industry and the company has already secured additional deals in New Jersey. The brand will be working with SugarHouse, Ocean Resort Casino and 888 Casino for live dealer content. 888 Casino was actually the first official partner for Evolution in the state.
For some time now, the Golden Nugget has been the online casino operator that offers the best in live dealer gaming and runs the show when it comes to this type of gaming content. However, they will soon be given a run for their money as there will be several operators offering such content. With more operators offering such games, players will have a larger selection of the live dealer games like baccarat, blackjack, etc.
It will be a bit difficult for the other operators to give the Golden Nugget a run for their money. The casino continues to reach massive heights when it comes to online gaming. Just last month, the online casino operator hit the $9 million mark. The online gaming operator is far above the competition with the Borgata coming in second, usually earning around $4 million revenues.
For now, the Hard Rock Atlantic City is ready to offer live dealer gaming and it will be interesting to see in the coming weeks just how well the casino does with the new gaming options. Players of the brand are sure to give the new gaming option a try!
