Atlantic City’s Ocean Resort Launches Online Gambling Site

The newly opened Ocean Resort in Atlantic City has launched it’s own online gambling site. The site is run by GAN software, which also supplies the Betfair online brand in the New Jersey market.

Atlantic City’s Ocean Resort has moved quickly to launch an online casino site in New Jersey powered by GAN software.

The casino soft-launched the site last week, less than two weeks after it opened on June 28 on Atlantic City’s Boardwalk. It joins Hard Rock Atlantic City—which also opened June 28—as the newest sites in the New Jersey online market.

The site premiered with 50 slots titles as well as casino games and video poker and a $125 sign-up bonus—the highest in the market.

The site is the second in New Jersey to use GAN’s gaming platform along with Betfair U.S. The company, however, said in a press release that Ocean Resort is the first to adopt GAN’s Turnkey Managed Services including technical operations management, customer services, payments management and associated regulatory consultancy.

The company also said it expects to launch online sports betting in the fourth quarter of 2018. Ocean Resort is one of only two casinos to have begun offering sports betting in Atlantic City, though several of the city’s casinos are planning to open sports books.

“GAN delivered efficiently and cost-effectively for Ocean Resort Casino and possesses a strategic patent which will give Ocean Resort Casino a competitive advantage with casino guests in Atlantic City who also choose to gamble online,” said Ocean Resort Casino CEO Frank Leone in a press release. “Furthermore, GAN’s proven platform, ‘dual-mode’ Simulated Gaming as well as real money internet gaming and track record of client success in the New Jersey market are among the many reasons we chose GAN to bring Ocean Resort Casino online in 2018.”

Also, the casino recently opened a data center from UK-based Continent 8. The data center will provide connectivity to Pennsylvania and Nevada locations, and has a direct link to Continent 8’s global network of more than 30 data centers. The feature suggests that Ocean Resort may be considering a poker site taking advantage of player sharing deals between New Jersey and Nevada which could expand to other states.
