Hard Rock AC License is Approved

Hard Rock AC License is Approved

Surging ahead with its ambitious plans and renovations, Hard Rock Atlantic City received the good news on Wednesday 9th May that its “bricks and mortar” casino license has been granted in time for its mid-day opening on 28 June 2018.

Hard Rock AC thanked the Casino Control Commission via their Twitter account on the day, confirming that the opening is proceeding on schedule. Thousands of staff have been recruited and the former Trump Taj Mahal premises will be opening with operational slots and gaming tables.

The licensing required for the Hard Rock Online Casino and poker gambling license will, in all probability, be issued sometime during the course of this summer.

Gaming Innovation Group, the five-year-old Malta-based tech company, have been confirmed as providing the infrastructure for their online casino. This is an interesting development to watch as GIG are themselves nothing short of rock-stars on the tech scene with 11million Euro on hand at the end of the last quarter, despite a 76% increase in its operational and expansion costs. NJ’s online gaming market forms a significant part of their market expansion plans with Hard Rock posed to benefit from this. The sports betting industry is in the sites of GIG additionally. GIG are experienced in this arena owning Nordbet in Germany; so they have a lot to bring to the table by association.

Ocean Resort Casino which is scheduled to open on the same day as Hard Rock AC, meanwhile has not yet been granted its license.

Ocean Resort’s online platform is to be operated by GAN which already operates Betfair, and should be fully iOS and Android compliant. Their online gaming offering will most probably include slots, video poker, table games and 90 ball bingo.

Ocean Resort will in all probability offer a multi-faceted loyalty scheme with VIPS being offered gifts, special promotions and even rooms at the venue. Sweepstake drawings, match deposit offers and point multipliers may also form part of their attraction for loyal players.

Payment and deposit options have improved vastly since 2013, and Ocean Resort is likely to offer the following options: eChecks, Master & Visa cards, Online banking transfers, Neteller and cash on site in AC.

The Casino Control Commission will meet again on 06 June – at which time their license will hopefully be pushed through. This is of course very tight, and the resort will probably open whether the license has been granted timeously or not.

Exciting times lie ahead for local gamers. Let’s see how big a day 28th June turns out to be.
