Online casino players located in the Garden State now have a new game developer to utilize, as 4ThePlayer is live. Those in the NJ gambling market can play several new game titles after the NJ Division of Gaming Enforcement granted the company a transactional waiver last week.

Not only does 4ThePlayer provide “player-centric innovation that sets it apart from other titles on the market,” but it’s also debuting its proprietary Big Reel Portrait Mode. This innovation gives casino players who use their device in portrait mode a much more captivating experience when gaming.

NJ bettors can start enjoying the game 9K Yeti right now, at several popular online casinos.

4ThePlayer launches in New Jersey

Now that it’s been given access to operate in NJ, 4ThePlayer is set for its initial introduction in the US. The online casino service provider was originally founded in 2018 and has been creating games in the UK for several years.

The team is led by four individuals who feature many years of industry experience. They include CEO Andrew Porter, Chris Ash, Thomas Scalzilli, and Henry McLean.

4ThePlayer intends to build exciting games for online casino players, without making things overly complicated. Its goal is to bring gamblers concise game mechanics through innovative designs and themes.

So far, the company is proving its worth with plenty of success, thus expanding into more legal markets. 4ThePlayer recently earned both the EGR Innovation in Slot Provision Award, along with the Casino Beats Outperforming Small Game Studio of the Year.

Ash, who is the brand’s business development director, discussed the exciting future ahead of the developer. He said:

“We are delighted to be granted our transactional waiver and to be live in the USA – this is a milestone for 4ThePlayer and our first step into the exciting US market. We cannot wait for players in New Jersey to enjoy our games and we look forward to further US expansion in additional states soon!”

9K Yeti is first of many 4ThePlayer new casino games

The first game to hit NJ casinos is 4ThePlayer’s 9K Yeti. Here, players can find Yeti footprints that take them on their adventure around Everest in the exciting NJ online slot title.

The game features 4,096 ways, while offering a maximum win of 9,011x your bet. 9K Yeti includes a RTP of 95%, as well as the possibility of 880 free spins.

So players can earn up to 88 free spins to start, and with lots of other retriggers, big wins are out there. A snowstorm brings more chances and guaranteed victories during the expedition.

The title released initially in the UK in Nov. 2019 and has received great feedback, including being  awarded the second-best online slot for that year overseas.

The company’s CEO in Porter talked about 9K Yeti and its appeal. Porter said:

“We are very proud of our first slot release. Being players ourselves we have spent a lot of time making sure it’s a game we would want to play. Adding the excitement and big win potential we want from games.”

One of the more interesting parts is 4ThePlayer’s exclusive Big Reel Portrait Mode. This creative technology provides a different look to slot games, as the reels are stacked on top of one another and spin right to left.

Since many online casino players wager on games with their mobile device in the convenient portrait mode (when your phone is in a vertical orientation), 4ThePlayer designed titles are built for that. This means the game will occupy the majority the device’s screen, delivering a higher quality experience.

However, those who feel concerned about this new look don’t need to worry. 9K Yeti is also available in a classic mode, giving bettors the two options before starting.

So far, several NJ online casinos are offering the title, including:
