Borgata First To Receive New Jersey I-Poker OK
Firm Will Be Among The First Group To Offer Games In Late November
The Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa was the first casino in Atlantic City to receive state approval to offer online gambling in late November, the Associated Press reported.
That decision — in the form of a permit — came from state regulators on Wednesday.
Real-money gambling — table games and slots — will kick off on Nov. 26 at 9 a.m. if the trial period starting a handful of days earlier goes smoothly.
“It’s always nice to be first in the queue,” the Borgata told the AP. “Borgata and bwin.party are aggressively pursuing our objective of being among the first to launch online gaming in the state. We believe online gaming is an exciting growth opportunity for New Jersey’s gaming industry, one that will generate significant benefits for the state as New Jersey assumes a leadership role in this emerging form of gaming entertainment.”
Other firms are expected to join the Borgata on the opening day of games.
Online poker giant PokerStars, thanks to a partnership with Resorts Casino, should also be involved with the industry. Same goes for Caesars, owner of the WSOP brand, which will offer games thanks to a deal with established poker site 888 Holdings.
New Jersey legalized online poker earlier this year, and recently finished the regulations governing the industry. Nevada is the only other state with such games.
The Borgata is owned by Marina District Development, a joint venture between Boyd Gaming and MGM Resorts International. It is the largest casino in New Jersey.
Like Nevada, New Jersey online poker will only be available for those physically within the state’s borders. One doesn’t have to live there to play.
