Australian online slot game developer Big Time Gaming, an extension of Scientific Games Corporation, has further expanded into the U.S. state of New Jersey with a recent agreement.
The content deal will bring a host of new games including Big Time Gaming’s Megaways line into the state’s online slots market. They’ll be available on Scientific Games Open Gaming System platform.
Thanks to the deal, Golden Nugget can now build on its already sterling reputation in Jersey with access to all of Big Time Games’ and Scentific Games’ vast assortment of games.
Big Time Games CEO Nik Robinson believes the agreement will help his content reach a hungry new audience in a quickly growing market.
“Our content and Scientific Games’ platform make for a perfect New Jersey offering. The US digital gaming market is gaining traction, and we’re excited to provide Golden Nugget’s players with our growing library of innovative titles.”Meanwhile Dylan Slaney, Senior VP of Casino and Platforms for Scientific Games Digital, championed the OGS platform and what it will offer to New Jersey online gambling fans.
“Our CONNECT partner program gives developers and innovators the opportunity to offer their content to more players than ever before, and this launch is a perfect example. By leveraging BTG’s innovative prowess, our strong game brands – both licensed and proprietary – and Golden Nugget’s loyal audience, we’ve created a truly unprecedented gaming ecosystem for New Jersey players.”
The games themselves are quite unique and should appeal to a wide array of different audiences. The recently released Who Wants to be a Millionaire and Vikings Unleashed utilize the Megaways random reel modifier system.
As partners for launching slot games into a new market go, Big Time Gaming is confident it’s found a good one.
Golden Nugget is a recognized leader in online gambling in New Jersey finishing a good way ahead of the competition in May.
Last month Golden Nugget brought in $14 million in online gaming revenue, while its brick-and-mortar establishment in the state brought in $17.1 million.
Thomas Winter, Senior VP and GM of Golden Nugget, hopes the introduction of these popular, innovative slots to the United States market will only continue to bolster the casino’s online status in the Garden State.
“Golden Nugget Casino leads the New Jersey market with the largest portfolio of slot games. Working with Scientific Games and Big Time Gaming to bring these innovative Megaways slot games to the US provides our growing player base an exclusive first look at these games that are pioneering the online slots industry.”
The deal additionally adds to Golden Nugget’s potential to reach a major milestone for online gambling. At its current pace, Golden Nugget’s online gambling revenue may eventually surpass its land-based casino revenue, which would make a substantial statement for internet gaming as a whole.
