Toward the end of 2023, Hacksaw Gaming made its debut in New Jersey. At the time, the company’s CEO noted Hacksaw’s “ever-increasing footprint.”

Indeed it expanded once again among online casinos in NJ, as Hacksaw announced partnerships with two more operators: BetRivers and Hard Rock.

It’s just another step for Hacksaw, with New Jersey as a key piece to the nascent company’s success, as Marcus Cordes, the Hacksaw CEO, said in a statement.

“Securing New Jersey, a highly significant jurisdiction and pioneer on the American iGaming front, should add to the already proved insightful and triumphant venture.”

First, Hacksaw leveraged its partnership with BetRivers

Some six months ago, Hacksaw made its American debut in West Virginia with its new partner Rush Street Interactive. That partnership opened an avenue in New Jersey, as well.

That existing content distribution deal set up Hacksaw Gaming to bring its games to the Garden State via BetRivers Online Casino NJ.

As put in a press release announcing the deal, Rush Street “has demonstrated remarkable success” in the online casino world. In turn, adding Hacksaw’s “flair and themes … sets forth a rich client relationship and stellar entertainment experience for online gaming enthusiasts.

“We are so please,” Rush Street CEO Richard Schwartz said in a press release, “to extend our partnership with Hacksaw Gaming into New Jersey, following our successful launches with them in Mexico, Ontario and West Virginia.”

As part of the deal, Hacksaw incorporated popular titles such as Chaos CrewOm Nom and Stack’em within the BetRivers app, with a long list of more titles to be continuously added.

Next, Hacksaw branched out with Hard Rock deal

Hacksaw Gaming was not done in January, as it announced in the final days of the month a new partnership with Hard Rock Digital.

As a result, Hard Rock Bet NJ will also now feature Hacksaw content.

The online casino immediately began rolling out Hacksaw games, including the aforementioned Chaos Crew and Omnom as well as Mines and Boxes.

Landing a partnership with Hard Rock, Cordes said in a statement, was no small feat and certainly significant for Hacksaw Gaming.

“To collaborate with the household name Hard Rock is and will be a noteworthy experience for us all. We are excited to see the crossover between the Hacksaw and Hard Rock Bet brands flourish.”

These two partnerships come on heels of DraftKings deal

Recall toward the end of 2023 when Hacksaw first reached New Jersey soil courtesy of an agreement with DraftKings Casino.

In December, the content provider infused DraftKings with 10 games. More important, however, it provided Hacksaw with the on ramp to the NJ online casino highway.

“Having secured such a significant presence in the US in 2023 is something we are incredibly proud of,” Cordes said at the time. “And our hard work takes form in our ever-increasing footprint.”
