August 12, 2013

Official confirmation has been made by Tropicana Casino and Resort of a deal with Gamesys that will see it enter the world of online gambling. The confirmation of this alliance was made on Wednesday, effectively ending month-long speculations. UK-based Gamesys specializes in software design and has become renowned because of the real-money gambling site This is an online game portal that poker lovers may not have heard of, as it offers only online bingo and casino-style table games. But now thanks to the deal, this is poised to change.

Following the acquisition of Virgin Games, the in-house development team of Gamesys set to work on the development of proprietary poker software. It is currently unclear whether this software can work by the time the operation goes live. However, the New Jersey situation is favorable. There are a reported 37 online companies that have submitted license applications for Internet gaming in New Jersey, and Tropicana is one of the 12 casinos that are considered eligible for housing gambling software.

Founder and CEO Noel Hayden said, “We have always sought ambitious partners and Tropicana Atlantic City is a great partner for Gamesys as Internet gaming comes to New Jersey.” Tropicana and Gamesys reportedly started working on their deal in June and Gamesys was able to complete the application process and beat the July 31st deadline. Other partnerships that have been confirmed are Ultimate Poker with Taj Mahal, bn with Borgata, PokerStars with Resorts, and the Golden Nugget with Amaya.

Ultimate Poker is already live in Nevada and even though it’s still unknown which gambling sites will be going live by the end of the year in New Jersey, it could be one of them. The seemingly most potentially productive partnership is that of Resorts with PokerStars as the online poker site stands to dominate the New Jersey market.
