NetEnt in AmericaWhile online gambling grows and flourishes throughout the world in many different countries, the USA has been plagued with setbacks and restrictions.

The state of New Jersey is currently the only part of the United States of America that legally allows online gambling and it is slowly gaining traction. The overall growth of the industry is slowly starting to take hold, especially with the latest development.

Net Entertainment is expanding their online gambling offerings into a casino in Atlantic City, despite regulators being cautious of permitting operators this opportunity.

Net Entertainment’s announcement

NetEnt recently announced that it will be expanding its presence by signing a contract with Resorts Casino, a New Jersey casino operator. The license agreement will require NetEnt to apply for a transactional waiver from the New Jersey division of the Gaming Enforcement. Once the transactional waiver has been granted, only then can NetEnt launch its services and Gala Coral games at Resorts Casino.

“I am very pleased that we have entered into this partnership with Resorts Casino, and the agreement shows the trust and confidence that exist in our local operational and portfolio capabilities in New Jersey,” said NetEnt America’s managing director, Björn Krantz.

Mark Giannantonio, the president and chief executive officer of Resorts Casino Hotel, also commented saying, “It has been a really exciting few weeks for Resorts Digital Gaming’s business and the addition of these games will only strengthen our product offering further.”

More about the Atlantic City Resorts Casino Hotel

When it launched on the 26th of May 1978, the Atlantic City Resorts Casino Hotel was the first casino hotel in Atlantic City. It was also the first legal casino outside of Nevada in the USA. The resort has undergone many renovations, with the most recent being in 2011 when the resort was themed as a roaring 20’s getaway.

In August 2012, the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority, operator of the Mohegan Sun, took over the management of the casino and hotel.
