Back in October, Resorts Casino in New Jersey revealed details about its joint venture with the Swedish provider of casino software NetEnt. Two months after the deal was signed, Resorts Digital announced a transactional waiver has been received and the first two slots, powered by Netent, were released mere hours ago. Resorts and Mohegan Sun Casino users are now enabled to enjoy Gonzo’s Quest and Starburst.

The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement gave NetEnt the green light to enter the gambling market in the Garden state and according to the agreement, NetEnt is in charge of delivering casino online games for desktop and mobile devices to Mohegan Sun and Resorts Casino online casino brands.

Mohegan Sun is one of the most popular casinos throughout the United States. The Connecticut-based property is allowed to provide online gaming services via a licensing cooperation with Resorts.

Mark Giannantonio, Resorts Casino CEO, commented on the matter and said the slots release was a part of their commitment to providing New Jersey-based players with the best casino experience. Mr. Giannantonio did not hide his excitement that Resorts have inked an agreement with NetEnt, said to be a leader on the global gambling market.

Björn Krantz, a managing director of NetEnt, also commented on the partnership with Resorts and Mohegan Sun and said that the supplier was delighted to be a part of the process of building a long-term growth for the New Jersey gambling market.

Although NetEnt is yet to receive a casino license authorising its availability on the New Jersey gambling scene, it has already hinted at its ambitions to conquer the market. Borgata and bwin.party users are already able to enjoy NetEnt-powered games due to the transactional waiver from the NJDGE that took place in August.

The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement is still reviewing NetEnt’s application for a Casino Service Industry Enterprise Licence but meanwhile, NetEnt has inked deals with Caesars Interactive Entertainment and Golden Nugget, so its partnership with Resorts casino was considered just another step towards its main objective.

In addition, NetEnt is rumoured to expand its partnership with PokerStars when the platform is officially launched in New Jersey sometime next year.

Mr Krantz said that currently, NetEnt does not provide content for online poker sites but it was reviewing the option of providing content for the PokerStars’ casino platform in New Jersey. Both parties are yet to discuss the matter and settle around a final decision.
