Fast enough to give you whiplash, the newly opened Ocean Resort Casino AC is introducing yet another spellbinding wager opportunity for its patrons. This follows hot on the heels of their introduction of sports-betting after barely opening their doors in the city in June.
This past week, Ocean Resort Casino AC announced its intention to launch live dealer games in association with Evolution Gaming.
These guys mean business and are placing their stake in the aggressive and growing NJ online casino market; with no compromises.
To put this into context, Live Dealer Games came to New Jersey in 2016, launched first by Golden Nugget and Betfair. At the time, the games and the playing times were fairly restricted, but they have expanded exponentially since then due to their popularity. So popular was the introduction of Live Dealer that on the back of this move, Golden Nugget became the top online casino in the state and has never looked back. They currently hold a staggering 40% market share bolstered by this strategic introduction in 2016.
Thomas Winter, online gaming supervisor of Golden Nugget has said that of their top 10 wagering games, no less than 4 of these are live dealer games. This has increased their online table game income by a blinding 150%. Given this sort of success story, it’s hardly surprising that Ocean Resort wants in on the action.
The only other operator in the live dealer sphere is currently Borgata who launched their own studio recently. There is a possibility that 888 Casino will also launch live dealer games before fall of this year.
Ocean Resort Casino intends going live in the third quarter of 2018 and will include tables in a live studio and a Dual Play Roulette game.
Evolution will be providing the following games to them – American Roulette, Slingshot Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, Dual Play Roulette, Three Card Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em. And what’s more is that Evolution’s service is international meaning that players get to wager against European counterparts on Dual Play Roulette.
This new venture with Evolution Gaming is merely one of many new innovative offerings by an ambitious new business concern who needs to define themselves as “the place to be” with 8 other hungry competitors in the city, and further strategic partnerships is a surefire way for them to define themselves.
