Garden State PointsBet online casino customers can now access live dealer games. The live casino offerings are streamed from Evolution’s studios in New Jersey.
Call it the next big step for PointsBet Casino, the first and currently only online casino skin operating under the Bally’s Atlantic City license. The launch took place over the summer with a limited library of just 17 titles.
With the addition of a live dealer menu, customers now have many more options:
- American roulette
- Infinite blackjack
- American auto roulette
- American lightning roulette
- Three card poker
- Ultimate Texas hold ’em
- Speed baccarat
Plus, there is the gameshow-styled Dreamcatcher. This is where presenters spin a wheel and interact with players placing bets on the number they think the wheel will stop. Will it be 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, or 40?
All games are available to mobile and desktop users.
More about PointsBet Casino live dealer games
New Jersey online casinos offering live dealer options have become extremely popular. Some operators such as Barstool, SugarHouse and DraftKings have branded tables.
According to the press release, PointsBet “anticipates launching branded tables in the state later this month.”
Aaron O’Sullivan, PointsBet’s VP of online casino revenue, said “live gaming in New Jersey represents a serious expansion of our relationship with Evolution and with our live gaming players.”
“PointsBet is committed to providing the most thrilling casino experience to our users. We received tremendous feedback and a clear message that users want more options, including live play. These games are fun and interactive, and we know they will be enthusiastically received,” O’Sullivan added.
New Jersey is currently one of only two markets where PointsBet Casino is available. Michigan is the other.
PointsBet has reported $1.3 million in NJ online casino revenue since its July 2021 launch. The total does not include December results which are due out later this month.
PointsBet is a familiar name to NJ online gamblers
PointsBet Casino is new and growing by the month, but the name is an extremely familiar one to NJ sports bettors. The PointsBet Sportsbook app, which is separate from the casino product, launched in 2019.
It operates under the Meadowlands racetrack license with FanDuel Sportsbook and SuperBook. Regulations require online casinos to partner with an Atlantic City casino.
Plus, those Drew Brees PointsBet commercials are hard to miss when watching live sporting events. So there is brand recognition with NJ customers.
And being part of the NJ sports betting market is key as the state has reported back-to-back months of handle exceeding $1 billion. By offering users both sports and casino options, it creates cross-selling opportunities.
This means on Sundays, PointsBet gamblers can now do live betting while playing live dealer blackjack. The combination looks like a potential hit.
