Golden Nugget & Trump Properties Receive New Jersey Internet Gambling Permits
The Golden Nugget, Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort and Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City have all received an Internet gambling permit from the Division of Gaming Enforcement in New Jersey. The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa received the state's first Internet gambling permit earlier this month.
"All players that desire to gamble online deserve a fair and trustworthy experience," said Golden Nugget vice president and general manager Tom Pohlman. "Rest assured, that is our customer commitment, and unlike others, we have an Atlantic City land-based casino to stand behind our online brand."
Trump Taj Mahal will use Ultimate Gaming as its Web partner, while Trump Plaza will team up with Betfair.
“Ultimate Gaming is a pioneer in the online gaming space and can provide a turnkey solution for our online gaming needs in New Jersey," said Trump Entertainment Resorts Inc.'s CEO Robert F. Griffin when the deal with Ultimate Gaming was originally announced. "We are delighted to be working with a trusted partner that has a proven track record."
All permitted companies will have to wait until Nov. 21 to begin offering online gambling, which is when the state’s trial period is set to begin. If all goes well during the trial period, less than a week later, on Nov. 26, NJ residents and visitors within state lines will be allowed to participate in full online gaming.
