DraftKings Casino is offering New Jersey online casino players an exclusive look at new games thanks to a new partnership.

DraftKings recently entered into a deal with Hacksaw Gaming after the latter secured a provisional NJ online casino license. As a result, Hacksaw expects to go live with its games at DraftKings by the end of the year.

The deal calls for Hacksaw to exclusively roll out 10 games to DraftKings Casino users for two weeks in the Garden State.

“Having secured such a significant presence in the US in 2023 is something we are incredibly proud of,” Marcus Cordes, CEO of Malta-based Hacksaw, said in a statement.

“And our hard work takes form in our ever-increasing footprint.”

What Hacksaw Gaming brings to NJ online casinos

New Jersey represents the second entry point for Hacksaw Gaming, on the heels of the company going live in West Virginia via BetRivers, which also has an online casino in New Jersey.

With DraftKings Casino NJ, users could find popular Hacksaw Gaming titles such as Hand of Anubis, Blood Thirst and Wanted Dead or a Wild.

Other potential titles include:

  • Joker Bombs
  • King Carrot
  • Stack ’em
  • The Bowery Boys
  • Toshi Video Club

Hacksaw stands as a rising player in the iGaming space. The company has grown overseas and won the “Slot Supplier Rising Star” award at the EGR B2B Awards in London this year.

Hacksaw Gaming offers slots that feature multipliers, some reaching 100X or more during bonus rounds. As a result, these games feature high volatility and an average return to player of over 96%.

Another deal to bolster NJ online casino leader

During the company’s third quarter earnings report, Jason Robins, fo-counder and CEO of DraftKings, highlighted that the group “achieved #1 combined [online sports betting] and iGaming gross gaming revenue share in the US.”

He later added that DraftKings Casino “is probably the one piece of our business I’d point to that’s under-talked about.”

The brand has certainly helped in terms of online gambling revenue in New Jersey. While regulators do not break down revenue by individual operator, DraftKings is grouped under the Resorts Atlantic City license.

As NJ online casino gaming celebrates 10 years, the industry has generated over $7 billion in revenue. Of that, the Resorts group has accounted for $1.5 billion, behind only Golden Nugget and Borgata.

Resorts has gained ground on the top two. Perhaps the addition of Hacksaw will assist DraftKings in pushing Resorts closer to the No. 1 position.
