A new era of gaming in Atlantic City begins as three online real‐money gaming offerings under the Caesars Entertainment umbrella begin entertaining New Jersey residents and visitors.
Consumers 21 or older inside New Jersey's borders and who have been vetted through Caesars’ responsible gaming screening can now log onto CaesarsCasino.com, HarrahsCasino.com or WSOP.com to play poker, blackjack, roulette, baccarat, video slots and video poker. All three operations will be run by Caesars Interactive Entertainment (CIE), the online arm of Caesars Acquisition Company (CAC).
Both the Caesars and the Harrah's names will become the longest‐running casino brands in New Jersey to offer online gaming, and the World Series of Poker is the longest‐running poker brand in existence, with roots dating back to 1970. WSOP.com launched real‐money online poker in Nevada two months ago.
"We are excited to be launching three of the most iconic U.S. gaming brands online for those inside New Jersey borders," said CIE Senior Vice President Geoffrey Stewart in a prepared statement. "With industry‐leading technology and the loyalty benefits of our Total Rewards and Action Club programs, we know consumers will quickly see why CaesarsCasino.com, HarrahsCasino.com, and WSOP.com are some of the best places to play online casino games for real money in the Garden State. The fun and action found online will reflect what our players have come to expect from our land‐based properties for decades."
CaesarsCasino.com, HarrahsCasino.com and WSOP.com will be available on both PC's and Mac desktop computers. The casino products will be web browser-based offerings, while WSOP.com, as is in Nevada, is a downloadable software product that is saved to a player's desktop. Mobile versions of all three offerings are expected in the coming months.
To power CaesarsCasino.com, CIE has partnered with Amaya Gaming. Amaya is a Montreal, Canada headquartered company founded in 2004 and a leading provider of technology‐based gaming solutions to the regulated gaming industry.
For the HarrahsCasino.com and WSOP.com offerings, CIE has partnered with 888 Holdings, Inc. 888 also powers CIE's online offerings in Nevada. 888 Holdings was founded in 1997 and is based in Gibraltar.
Caesars is not the only New Jersey casino operator to launch online wagering offerings:
• Trump Taj Mahal has teamed with Ultimate Gaming, a majority‐owned subsidiary of Station Casinos, to launch UCasino.com. This site features a wide range of casino‐style games, including blackjack, roulette and video poker, as well as the most popular, well‐known slot games. www.UCasino.com will also feature multiplayer poker via Ultimate Poker.
• Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa now offers two Borgata-branded gaming sites—BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com. Borgata’s online gaming partner, bwin.party digital entertainment, has also been authorized to launch Party-branded sites nj.partypoker.com and nj.partypoker.com/casino.
• Tropicana Atlantic City Casino & Resort has unveiled TropicanaCasino.com, which will showcase a variety of slot game options and classic casino table games. "We've always differentiated our resort by offering more fun, value and variety,” said Tony Rodio, president and CEO of Tropicana Entertainment. “We see the launch of TropicanaCasino.com as an expansion of this diversified experience for our loyal players and a chance for new players to enjoy the difference we offer, as well."
