The Borgata has become the latest to launch an online presence for online poker and casino games ahead of regulated internet gambling launching in the state of New Jersey.
The Atlantic City casino, the first in the state to receive a permit to offer online gaming, will launch its online games on BorgataPoker.com and BorgataCasino.com. These two domains currently allow those interested to sign up to a mailing list to be “the first to know.”
According to the site, Borgata plans to offer a full slate of games for real-money, including online poker, blackjack, roulette and slots. The casino has partnered with bwin.party for its online platform, and expects to be one of the first to go live when online gaming launches later this month.
Amaya announced thursday that its casino games would also be available through Borgata’s websites following a partnership inked with bwin.party.
Operators that receive the necessary approvals need to run a five-day soft-launch before opening on November 26. Select players need to be invited to this soft launch period, hence the spate of pre-launch sites opening up in recent days: Betfair launched its “Lets Play NJ” website last month with pre-signups; Golden Nugget moved its play-money site over to GoldenNuggetPoker.net to make way for its real-money site, and Tropicana is taking signups on Tropicana.NET for its “pre-opening.”
