New Jersey Online Gaming Industry Breaks Record with Biggest Month in History

Signaling the vibrancy of its online gaming industry, New Jersey was able to bank its biggest online “win” rate in its history in the month of March 2018. Over the 31 days of March, New Jersey’s citizens seemed to flock to the offerings from the casino operations in the state. For the month, the five online operations in the state – the Borgata’s poker and casino sites, Caesars’ poker and casino sites, Resorts’ poker and casino sites and the individual casino operations of the Golden Nugget and the Tropicana – pulled in a record $ 25.6 million. That was by far the biggest month in the history of the Garden State’s online gaming industry, beating its previous best by almost $ 4 million (the previous record was $ 21.7 million in March 2017). Breaking down the numbers from March, it was casino gaming that once again carried the online industry.

Phil Galfond Announces Run It Once Online Poker Room Launch Coming This Summer

In September 2016, poker pro Phil Galfond announced that he was going to start his own online poker room named after his poker training site, Run It Once. His idea was to build something that would cater to players of all types, that would focus on fairness, and that would be transparent. Since then, we have heard so little about the new poker room that most of us assumed the project had been shelved. But last week, Galfond wrote a long blog post on RunItOnce.eu (which we assume is the web address for the poker room), explaining what has been going on and trying to get back to the concept of transparency. Galfond explained that the delays have largely been related to software development. “Our software delays weren’t the typical delays that come with the territory,” he said. “We made some significant missteps early in our software development (I don’t

New Jersey to Share Online Poker Liquidity with Delaware, Nevada

A new day is about to dawn for online poker. Okay, am I severely overselling it with that introductory sentence. But still, that WSOP.com and 888 Poker will be facilitating the merger of player pools of New Jersey with those of Delaware and Nevada in about two weeks is a pretty big deal. There are just four states that have legalized and regulate online poker, but New Jersey, Delaware, and Nevada are the only ones to actually have sites up and running (Pennsylvania’s sites should be ready later this year). Delaware and Nevada have shared player pools for quite some time now and needed to do so because of their relatively small populations, but New Jersey had yet to get onboard. And because of New Jersey’s size – 11th in terms of population – getting the Garden State to share its players is important. In a press release Monday, WSOP.com

Hard Rock Atlantic City to Use GiG Platform for Online Gambling Offering

On Monday, Malta-based Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) announced that it has entered into a five-yar agreement with Hard Rock International to be the company’s online gambling provider for its Hard Rock Atlantic City property, set to open this summer. The two companies had signed a Letter of Intent in late October, though at the time, GiG did not make it public that its partner was, in fact, Hard Rock International. Gaming Innovation Group was founded in 2008 and has offices in six cities: Malta, Marbella, Gibraltar, Oslo, Kristiansand, and Copenhagen. It owns seven business-to-consumer online gambling and sports betting brands, focusing on European markets. That is, until now. The venture with Hard Rock will be GiG’s first foray into the young United States regulated online gambling market. GiG explained what it will provide in Monday’s press release: The agreement will see GiG furnish Hard Rock with a state of the

Online Poker Bill Passes New York Senate Gaming Committee

If at first you don’t succeed…you know how it goes. Such is the case in the New York state legislature, where for the third consecutive year, a bill which would legalize and regulate online poker has made it through the Senate Racing, Gaming, and Wagering Committee. S3898 passed easily by a 10-1 vote and now moves on to the Senate Finance Committee. There was significant movement with the bill last year, as it not only made it out of the Racing, Gaming, and Wagering Committee, but also the Finance Committee and then passed a vote of the full Senate in mid-June. Despite having half the year to get through the Assembly, it never even made it out of committee there. And it’s not even that it lost a vote; the Assembly really just didn’t bother with it. One would think that it would move fairly quickly this time, as it
