Resorts in Atlantic City will join the New Jersey regulated online gaming industry this week. It will not be through its original PokerStars partnership at this time. SNG Interactive will supply virtual table games and slots to Resorts.
The PokerStars online poker room is still in the plans, pending approval from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement. The new site’s FAQ specifically addresses this situation.
The new Resorts Internet casino site is live at Resortscasino.com. At this time, 32 slot games are available in free play mode. There are no table games or video poker titles in the game menu. Players can access the games on a PC, Mac, or mobile devices. Deposits will be accepted by Visa, Mastercard, ewallets, electronic check, and cash at the Resorts casino cage in Atlantic City once real money games are available.
Resorts will be required to launch under a five-day testing period. This is a requirement for all interactive operators. The target date for full operations is February 25, 2015.
Resorts joins Caesars, Tropicana, Borgata, and Golden Nugget in the New Jersey regulated online gaming market. This leaves Trump Entertainment as the only company that owns an Atlantic City casino that is not in the New Jersey Internet gaming market. The company once partnered with Ultimate Gaming and Betfair, but both of those agreements were severed due to Trump Entertainment’s financial issues.
