Another US Notch for NetEnt with Golden NuggetJust yesterday it was announced that NetEnt ha gone live with Twin Spin on a Caesar’s Interactive Entertainment online casino brand and today it’s been announced that yet another New Jersey casino has added a selection of NetEnt games to their offering. Golden Nugget, a land based hotel and casino chain around America, is one of the few casinos to have an online casino in the USA, focused on New Jersey as it’s the only US state to legalise and regulate online gambling.

NetEnt was awarded a transactional waiver earlier this year, meaning they could begin integrations and even go live with games whilst the lengthy licensing process is ongoing, all but confirming their approval. Golden Nugget’s online casino now boasts NetEnt games in New Jersey, USA, such as Gonzo’s Quest, Starburst, Jack and the Beanstalk and Flowers. The idea is to go in with a small selection in order to get players used to their product, and not overload the casinos and players with something brand new. Trust and loyalty takes time to build so once these games gain in popularity more and more will be added.

We’re really excited to be live with Golden Nugget. We continue our expansion into the New Jersey market and with our award-winning games we hope to support Golden Nugget’s long-term growth within online casino and to offer their players a great player experience.

NetEnt and the US

Online gambling is illegal throughout most of the USA, except in the state of New Jersey where they have implemented strict licensing requirements that allow land based casinos to offer an online casino to New Jersey residents. NetEnt has teamed up with some of these land based establishments in order to procure their own US casino license so they can offer their games on licensed New Jersey casinos as well as across the USA if and when online gambling is legalised more widely.
