In preparation for online casino gaming, Hard Rock Casino Atlantic City has announced a new deal with NetEnt.
The Hard Rock Casino of Atlantic City will be launched hopefully by this summer, offering visitors to the region with quality casino games, restaurant dining and more. The brand has already announced that they were interested in being involved with online gaming, having partnered with Gaming Innovation Group for their platform for iGaming. The announcement of this partnership was made in February and now the brand has announced yet another partnership, this time with NetEnt.
Already Operating in NJ
NetEnt is no stranger to New Jersey. The bran already provides online casino games to brands operating in the state. 888 Casino is one example of an online casino in the state that already offers NetEnt games within their libraries. Because NetEnt already operates in NJ, it is not surprising to find that Hard Rock AC will also be working with the brand.
Hard Rock is excited to work with NetEnt, with Kresimir Spajic, the SVP of Online Gaming for Hard Rock International, stated that the company is delighted to partner with NetEnt, as they are known for their forward-thinking and innovative gaming solutions.
Players who want to enjoy the land-based and online gaming options of Hard Rock should be excited about this announcement. NetEnt offers some of the best games in the industry with many offering above average return to player percentages. Players will find games of the brand have returns ranging from 96% to 98%, which means more potential for big wins.
The games created by NetEnt offer quality graphics, nice jackpots and bonus games. Titles are based on popular themes and provide players only the best in online casino gaming. Such titles one can expect at Hard Rock AC online include:
- Planet of the Apes
- Divine Fortune
- Twin Spin
Adding to the Online Gaming Industry
The online gaming industry of New Jersey is already booming and has been for some time now. The state continues to see major revenue earnings month after month as players log on to enjoy slot games, table games and poker. Right now, it has become common place for the casinos to bring in over $20 million in monthly revenues.
The Golden Nugget is the top provider, able to pull in $7 to $8 million each month. The Borgata pulls in at second place, averaging around $3 to $4 million on a monthly basis. For the Hard Rock Casino AC, they will have probably have a tough time competing with these numbers once they get started with online casino gaming, but you never know, they might give the Borgata and the Golden Nugget a run for their money.
Either way, the addition of the Hard Rock within the online gambling industry of the state is certain to increase the total monthly earnings, no matter how much they bring in. On top of the Hard Rock offering online gaming, the Ocean Resort Casino, a second new gaming venue coming this summer, is also interested in offering online gaming, having recently partnered with GAN.
With two new online casino operators on the market, it would not be surprising to see New Jersey reach the $1 billion mark by the end of the year or at least come close, when it comes to overall revenue earnings.
It will be interesting to watch over the coming months to see how well the two new casinos do with online gaming and how it impacts the iGaming industry as a whole. Just how much will New Jersey be able to earn with two new operators in business?
