For the first time ever in Atlantic City, gamblers can bet on outcomes from the actual casino floor without physically being in the casino.
Golden Nugget Atlantic City has begun offering Live Dealer Casino Floor Roulette directly from the casino itself.
A new option
All Golden Nugget online casino live dealer games so far have broadcast from a specially designed studio at the property. With this new option, a video feed streams directly onto computers, tablets and smartphones across the state of New Jersey.
The main selling point of casino floor broadcasting is its availability to the public. Like many casinos themselves, this form of roulette will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Since the broadcast features the sights and sounds of a real roulette table, players will also find that casino floor roulette will better capture the feeling and emotion of playing in an actual casino. For many patrons, blurring the line between reality and gaming will accentuate the experience of online casinos.
However, some players may find the pace of the game to be slower, since there are actual mechanics to running this game that are absent from the other live dealer games. Players also do not have a way to communicate with the dealers, which may turn away some guests who want that interaction.
Adding to Golden Nugget’s live dealer revolution
Regardless, this game is the latest in Golden Nugget’s growing live dealer portfolio. There are now ten tables available via smartphone or tablet that feature live dealers:
- Blackjack – Five tables
- Casino Floor Roulette – One table
- Roulette – One table
- Multiview Roulette – One table
- Baccarat – One table
- Casino Hold’em – One table
Except for casino floor roulette, these games have specific times of operation. Players can find live dealer games from 2 p.m. to 3 a.m. on Monday through Wednesday, and from noon to 3 a.m. on Thursday through Sunday.
Golden Nugget plans to expand the availability further in 2018. This expansion in both timeframe and options is striking, considering that the 2016 debut of live dealer games was three tables running from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m.
Golden Nugget is dominating the online market in New Jersey
Almost since their inception, however, these types of games have proven quite popular. Their influence has helped propel Golden Nugget to its position at the NJ online casino revenue in New Jersey.
In fact, Golden Nugget reported revenues of almost $8 million for online gambling in February 2018 alone. Other top operators are only coming in at half of Golden Nugget’s revenue.
Live dealer games — and innovation — is part of the reason for that lead.
