The $500 million investment in the new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino NJ opening on 28 June isn’t going unmatched in investment with its online gaming platforms.
In February, Gaming Innovation Group (GIG) from Malta were announced as the company due to operating their digital consumer portal, but even better news, is that NetEnt is also due to be a contributor to the newly licensed casino.
Like Gaming Innovation Group, NetEnt is a European firm which has been around since the 1990’s and has been supplying world class innovative gaming development services to Golden Nugget, Caesars and 888 Casino locally. Kresimir Spajic, senior vice president of online gaming at Hard Rock International said they were delighted to have NetEnt as partners due to their forward thinking gaming solutions and market leading game titles, which he anticipates will drive online casino growth for the new Hard Rock Online Casino AC.
So, exactly which games can we look forward to accessing on this new Hard Rock Casino platform? That’s the million dollar grand prize question as executives play their cards close, not currently disclosing to the media precisely what their offerings will be.
What do we know? NetEnt’s most loved games include Divine Fortune, Planet of the Apes and Emoji Planet. We think it’s unlikely that these popular games will be omitted.
Divine Fortune paid out more than $250 000 in combined jackpots between 26 March and 05 April in New Jersey this year, making it famed for churning out big wins. One of the winners, a female teacher, had spent five minutes and apparently only $10 before hitting the $61 226 jackpot. Impressive as that may sound, it pales in comparison to the experience of Anibal Lopes who won the $200 000 jackpot on his first attempt! With these kinds of winnings, Hard Rock have clearly found themselves excellent partners for driving their envisaged growth in the market.
The New Jersey online casino scene is due for a massive re-boot this year with Hard Rock and Ocean Resort entering the arena. The precise date for the Hard Rock Online Casino launch has not yet been confirmed, but it is most likely to be around the time of the grand opening. Operating with two such high grade, innovative development partners, Hard Rock may have a competitive edge, not only over the existing online gaming scene, but over new entrants as well.
