The past month has been a very busy one for Atlantic City. About a fortnight ago, Hard Rock and Ocean Resorts opened their doors to customers and this was followed shortly by an online offering from Hard Rock. The tremendous expansion of gambling options in the Garden State does not seem to have ended though as now Ocean Resorts has also joined the online gambling operator bandwagon with its new OceanOnlineCasino.com platform. This was officially confirmed when the former Revel Casino decided to finally remove the “under construction” banner that had been resting in the place of the operator’s much anticipated online gaming offering.
All New Jersey online casinos usually undergo a soft launch phase prior to being launched officially and Ocean Resort is no exception. The casino’s soft launch phase will have restricted gameplay hours but this is a measure that has been put in place simply to ensure that the final product will be something that customers would love and appreciate.
Huge Gain for GAN
The Ocean Resort online casino offering is being launched with GAN, a B2B internet gaming software developer, and provider. GAN has been quite up and about in the United States striking deals and integrating with various services and while this makes its partnership with Ocean Resorts less of a surprise it certainly is a welcomed development. Ocean Resorts casino also happens to be the first brick-and-mortar casino in New Jersey to partner with GAN.
Among the benefits that the software developer and provider will be bringing to the table are its impressive turnkey managed services that comprise of software development, regulated consultancy, payments management as well as customer services. In addition to this, GAN’s Ocean Resort Casino-licensed patent will also enable the operator’s clients that are part of the Ocean Premier (Ocean Resort Casino’s loyalty program) to sign up online and link their rewards card to their OceanOnlineCasino.com accounts.
“Ocean Resort Casino is a fabulous casino property, unarguably offering the best quality gaming & hotel in Atlantic City, which has now been optimized for success by the new ownership and leadership. We’re privileged to bring this immense property to life online, just as it relaunches in the traditional retail casino market. We’re excited to deliver not just another ‘me too’ Internet casino, but to also bring online for the first time the capabilities unlocked only by GAN’s convergence Patent which may give casino patrons in New Jersey a compelling economic rationale to play online with Ocean Resort Casino rather than established incumbent casino operators already online in this fast-growing market. Ocean Resort Casino is anticipated to be material to GAN’s revenue and earnings in H2 2018,” GAN chief executive officer, Dermot Smurfit said about the partnership.
At launch, the online gambling site will offer over 50 slots, table games like blackjack and roulette as well as eight different versions of video poker.
