The Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City has plans to be the first of the casinos in the State that will offer online gaming for players, this was announced by the parent company this week.
Chief executive officer and president, Keith Smith of Boyd Gaming Corp said that they will be very quick to introduce online betting once the New Jersey’s officials have completed the regulations. However, there was no launch date at ths stage, but, regulators for New Jersey think that the online gaming market would be opened probably in November this year.
Mr Smith said that their intent is to be one of the first that offered online gambling in New Jersey and they were confident that the Borgata brand would allow them to capture a substantial share of the market.
He continued that both Nevada and New Jersey were presently laying the groundwork for regulation of online gaming, and that other states were also considering introducing legislation as well.
There is speculation that the Borgata Hotel would join in an affiliation with the bwin.party digital entertainment because they have the links in place already, with the parent company, of the casino to deliver an online poker package.
It is expected that the New Jersey gambling industry would be worth about $1.4 billion in its first year alone, and state revenues about $180 million, according to the State Treasurer, Andrew Sidamon-Eristoff.
