In a big step forward, the Golden Nugget online casino based out of Atlantic City is about to launch their new service, live dealer games. They will become the first regulated online casino in New Jersey and in the United States to offer the live dealer option to their players. They will be showing the press and media the studio where the games will be broadcasted, as well as a ribbon cutting ceremony on August 11.
Starting with Live Blackjack, Roulette, and Baccarat
As it is the first time that a regulated online casino will be launching live dealer games in the US, it calls for a big celebration, as it will be leading the rest of the casinos towards expansion. This is a great way to continue to provide games in a legal and safe manner, rather than risk playing on unregulated sites. They will be initially launching three of the most popular casino games: Live Baccarat, Live Blackjack, Live Roulette.
The games are currently available from 6 pm until 2 am, but that could change to include a broader time-frame; for instance, extended times on the weekends. There are plans to expand their current selection, but it will take the time to organize and implement. This is why they are waiting to see how popular the three games will be and start adding as time goes on. Thomas Winter, VP of Online Gaming at Golden Nugget stated,
“We are launching with Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat so we’ll cover most needs from the get-go but yes we are already working on adding more games, more side bets for Blackjack and innovative features to the existing products. Some of these additions should be available by the end of the year.”
Golden Nugget Crushing the Competition
The Golden Nugget Casino is doing everything right, especially when it comes to their online casino. They recently set the monthly revenue record in June with $3.5 million. With the addition of these live dealer games, they should be looking at a much more profitable future. They also promise that players will have a completely interactive experience, where they can:
- Socially interact with other players.
- Interact with the dealer, even give them tips.
- Gameplay is as realistic as on the casino floor.
- Real items are used, like cards, tables, and everything in-between.
This will allow them to be even more competitive in the online gambling market, which has seen an increase in traffic to the actual casino due to interaction with their marketing or online play.
