UFC President Dana White Gambles Big During New Jersey's Online Gaming Launch

Dana White

On Monday, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White took the online gambling world by storm after he headed out to Atlantic City for the launch of online gaming in New Jersey.

White, who traveled to New Jersey in the company of Jennifer "JWoww" Farley and former UFC Lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, took a seat at the Trump Taj Mahal for an invite-only trial run of the online gaming software.

This, of course, is not White's first rodeo when it comes to gambling. White, who has proclaimed to have won as much as $6 million gambling and even lost $1 million in one night, was an ideal candidate to take to the virtual felt and fire away in New Jersey's new market.

Over the course of the evening, White made use of social media to track his impressive run. By the night's end, White finished in the black with a nice little profit of $33,500.

As of Monday, though, regulated online gaming is officially live and open to anyone geographically located in the Garden State. Players have options in regard to where they choose to play, as six casinos including Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort, Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino, Tropicana Casino and Resort, Caesars Atlantic City, and Bally's Atlantic City have received full permits to operate.
