Now, it hopes to create another wave by expanding its live dealer offering to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“We continue to demonstrate the never-ending commitment of GoldenNuggetCasino.com to providing New Jersey online casino players with the best online gaming experience,” said Thomas Winter, senior vice president and general manager of online gaming at Golden Nugget, in a statement.
“Our patrons asked and we delivered by opening our live dealer studio around the clock.”
Golden Nugget takes live dealer to the next level
Live dealer games offer players a far more immersive experience than typical online casino games. Using an innovative array of cameras and studio setups, Golden Nugget Online casino patrons can wager on games conducted with a real flesh-and-blood dealer.
They can even interact with the dealer and other players through a chat function.
What live dealer games are available at Golden Nugget?
However, with the different types of games, there are eight choices awaiting players in the live dealer lobby. So, the games and their variants are as follows:
- Casino floor
- Dragon Bonus Baccarat
- Casino Hold ’em
Now, a few of these games require explanation.
First, unlimited blackjack is a variant that allows thousands of players to participate on the same hand. In other words, the table effectively has an infinite number of seats.
Casino floor roulette is the only live dealer game that takes place on the actual casino floor of the Golden Nugget Atlantic City, rather than in the studio. Because of its location, casino floor roulette has been available 24 hours a day since its debut in March 2018.
So, the game has served as a blueprint for this latest expansion. It is also exclusive to Golden Nugget’s online casino in NJ.
Multi-view roulette features a table with an expanded set of available camera views.
In essence, players can now “turn” and “look at each other.” The innovative production values immerse players even deeper into the illusion that they are present in the actual casino itself.
A limited-time golden offer to celebrate
As part of the launch of the 24/7 studio, Golden Nugget is gifting players a special 10% up to $100 cash-back offer now through 11:59 p.m. Thursday, June 13.
All players have to do is make a minimum deposit of $20 and then play any live dealer game mentioned above.
If you don’t get any winnings — that is, if you end up losing — you’ll get a cash-back offer credited to your account on June 14.
Live dealer casino propelling Golden Nugget’s success
The expansion is not a surprise, given how important live dealer games are to Golden Nugget.
Since their introduction in 2016, live dealer games have propelled the website to the top of the heap in a very crowded New Jersey online casino market.
According to the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement’s most recent figures, Golden Nugget realized more than $14 million in revenues for May 2019 alone. That figure is good enough to account for almost 37% market share.
In other words, more than $1 out of every $3 wagered at New Jersey online casinos gets bet at Golden Nugget Online. No combination of any two of its competitors can boast such a performance.
In an interview with Steve Ruddock last year, Winter indicated that live dealer games have quickly become some of the most popular onsite, with several tables in their top 10 for visits.
Furthermore, their addition has increased online table game revenues by 150%.
So, the reasons for Golden Nugget to expand its live dealer offerings are clear. For their sake, let’s hope they have good coffee there for the dealers.
