The Golden Nugget continues their reign as the top online gambling operator in New Jersey by adding its 500th online casino game.
In New Jersey, online casino gaming is booming. The state offers several online casino sites, from operators such as the Golden Nugget, Borgata, playMGM and many more. Since 2013, New Jersey has been one of only three states in the US that offers online gaming options. New Jersey and Delaware provide both casino and poker gaming while Nevada focuses solely on iPoker. Pennsylvania recently passed legislation in late 2017 and after launching this year, the US will have four states officially offering iGaming.
In New Jersey, the Golden Nugget continues to reign supreme, taking the top spot in monthly earnings month after month. Second place Borgata continues to come in second, never seeming to earn enough to surpass the king of online gaming, the Golden Nugget. Just recently, the Golden Nugget announced the release of their 500th desktop casino game. With the release, the online gaming operator becomes the first in the United States to offer that amount of gaming options.
Top Online Gaming Provider
With 500 desktop games, the Golden Nugget offers a ton of gaming options for players to enjoy. Residents and visitors of New Jersey have access to table games, slots and more. At the Golden Nugget, there are over 300 casino games offered via mobile with the gaming operator holding the top spot in this segment as well.
Within the press release of the Golden Nugget, they stated that ‘Content is king’ and it certainly is. Around a year and a half ago, the five licensees of the state shared pretty equal proportions when it came to casino revenues from online providers. The licensees were earning from $3 million to $4 million each month.
It was around late 2016 that the Golden Nugget began to make their move to dominate the industry. They crossed the $7 million monthly threshold in January 2018, which happened after several months in 2017 surpassing the $5 million mark. The continual addition of casino games has helped the Golden Nugget hold on to the top spot.
Last year, the Golden Nugget added over 130 new casino games. Customers saw that the Golden Nugget was dedicated to new content and player needs, with wagers continuing to increase each month at the brand’s online casino.
Quality Operations and Offerings
The online casino of the Golden Nugget operates via the NYX Open Platform. NYX provides over 100 games of the casino, including table games. Golden Nugget also works with IGT and Bally Technologes to offer slot games, video poker and more.
One of the standout offerings of the Golden Nugget is Live Dealer gaming. The online casino operator is the only one in the state that offers live gaming. The Golden Nugget created a casino studio within their physical location which use real dealers and streaming services to provide the games to online casino visitors. Players have the ability to bet and tip online while interacting with the dealer during game play.
Live dealer gaming has been successful for the brand and will continue to help the Golden Nugget stand out among other operators.
It will be interesting to see how the operator fares during the next few months as more earnings reports have been tallied. The brand is on trend to be able to continue their momentum to earning millions each month, so we shall see if they hit the $7 million mark again for February or possibly even push past that amount as the revenue numbers come in.
