Golden Nugget Partners With Amaya Gaming For Nevada, New Jersey Online Poker
Casino Firms Strikes Deal With Amaya Gaming Group
The Golden Nugget has partnered with Amaya Gaming Group Inc. for its real-money online poker offerings in the United States, which includes New Jersey and Nevada.
Amaya will provide the content and help run the back-end of goldennuggetpoker.com and goldennuggetcasino.com, which will serve as the brands.
The deal is subject to regulatory approval.
Golden Nugget operates four Golden Nugget Hotels and Casinos between Nevada, New Jersey and Mississippi. Its fifth location was recently announced for a site in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
Nevada already has online poker underway, while New Jersey will launch next month.
“We intend to be a preferred early stage operator of real money online gaming as regulation progresses in the United States, initially in New Jersey and Nevada. To thrive in this market, we need to deliver a best-in-class online and mobile player experience,” Thomas Winter, Vice President Online Gaming of Landry’s, Inc., which operates Golden Nugget, said in a statement.
“Amaya provides proven online casino games and a poker platform that deliver precisely what we need. Through this partnership we can supply exceptional and secure online entertainment, supported by the strong brand of our land-based casinos.”
“We’re extremely pleased to be the selected partner for Golden Nugget’s venture into the emerging online gaming market in the United States,” David Baazov, CEO of Amaya Gaming Group, said in a statement. “This deal expands our existing partnership with Golden Nugget through the addition of our casino product to their poker offering, a result of both the quality of our offering and our strategic partnerships with both Bally and SHFL.”
Bally Technologies, which owns SHFL (formerly Shuffle Master), is also a Golden Nugget partner.
