Resorts Casino in Atlantic City has become the latest player in New Jersey’s approved online gambling sites.
The state Division of Gaming Enforcement approved Resorts’ online site for full online gambling after the casino completed a five-day test. The test verified that the casino’s equipment and systems are working properly.
The casino said it will now begin several weeks of beta testing. Gamblers at
ResortsCasino.com will play for real money during the beta test, and a full launch of the site is planned within a few weeks, Resorts President Mark Giannantonio said.
“During our beta period, we will invite players to sign up and provide feedback on the user experience, while we add additional features before our official launch,” Giannantonio said in a press release. “Real-time feedback will be an important aspect of our beta period as we further enhance the gaming content and features to produce the best casino experience in New Jersey.”
Resorts becomes the sixth of Atlantic City’s eight casinos to offer internet gambling, along with the Borgata, Golden Nugget, Tropicana, Caesars and Bally’s.
Resorts is also partnered with PokerStars to provide online gambling, but the online giant is still waiting to be approved for online gaming in New Jersey.
The new site offers only casino games and slots, but not online poker. Resorts’ site is offered in partnership with Sportech and NYX Gaming.
Rich Roberts, president of digital, U.S. for Sportech, said, “We are delighted to have received approval from the division following their review of www.resortscasino.com. We are now processing bets in the largest U.S. state to have legalized online gaming to date. Our joint venture with NYX for real-money gaming and play-for-fun platforms will be made available to both our existing and new customers in the U.S. and Canada as regulation permits.”
