Customers in three states, including players of online casinos in New Jersey, can now play Caesars Palace Online Casino live dealer titles with National Hockey League themes in time for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Caesars NHL Blackjack, an exclusive NHL-licensed game featuring a live dealer, is available now in the Garden State as well as in Michigan, and Pennsylvania. The game features the NHL Shield, as well as “an eye-catching icy blue hockey rink felt design,” according to the gaming operator.

This title is designed by Evolution Gaming Group, an award-winning game designer that has a partnership with Caesars Palace Digital, which oversees the company’s iGaming strategy.

Caesars Entertainment, the parent company of Caesars Palace Onlince Casino NJ app, renewed its United States partnership with the NHL last month. Registered users of Caesars Sportsbook NJ can also access casino titles, including live dealer offerings, via a menu tab on the website or on a mobile device.

Caesars also has live dealer titles built around roulette, classic and Infinite Blackjack, baccarat, craps, Texas Hold’em poker, among other poker games.

“Customizing our online casino offering to provide experiences true to the Caesars brand remains a key area of focus for us,” Matt Sunderland, senior vice president and chief iGaming officer at Caesars, said in a press release.

“The launch of Caesars NHL Blackjack is an exciting moment that enhances our ability to provide our players with an eye-catching game custom to their interests.”

Caesars Palace Online Casino latest to get into NHL-branded games

Evolution is the exclusive live dealer provider for Caesars Palace Online Casino. Only a handful of states permit live dealer gaming.

In live dealer blackjack, players compete via the internet in a game where a live human dealer is dealing the cards onto a real table from a studio in that state. It simulates the experience of being in a poker room or gaming room in a real-world casino.

“We’re proud to strengthen our collaboration with Caesars Digital by introducing NHL-branded tables to their Live Dealer offering,” said Jacob Claesson, Evolution’s CEO for North America. “We’re excited to see the enjoyment this new offering brings to fans and look forward to continuing to elevate the online gaming experience together with Caesars.”

Caesars becomes the latest NJ online casino to go live with NHL-branded games. Last year, BetMGM entered into an agreement with the NHL to develop league-branded online casino games for the New Jersey market.
