The Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa has unveiled two domains — BorgataPoker.com and BorgataCasino.com — and is allowing signups before its launches online gambling on Nov. 26.
“Sign up now and be the first to know when the excitement of the Borgata Casino comes online,” the website says. The casino will offer a handful of games, in addition to poker.
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.
“It’s always nice to be first in the queue,” the Borgata told the Associated Press after it was licensed for online poker. "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.”
Borgata was the first to receive a license.
New Jersey has 12 casinos and most are expected to be involved with the Internet gambling industry right away. Dozens of tech firms will also be involved.
Only Nevada and Delaware have legal web poker running right now.
