NEW HAVEN, Conn., April 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SNG Interactive ("SNG"), Sportech's joint venture with NYX Gaming Group Limited ("NYX"), has today officially launched www.ResortsCasino.com and its Atlantic City based partner, Resorts Casino, has unveiled the Resorts iGaming Lounge on their casino floor.
Following its initial beta phase, the new real money online casino offers the best online user experience, by featuring a large selection of casino slots and table games, as well as exclusive titles introduced in the United States for the first time.
This announcement follows news earlier this year that a transactional waiver for iGaming operations had been granted in the state of New Jersey. This certification confirms that SNG is compliant with the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement. As a result, SNG is provisionally permitted to offer real money gaming online to customers, accessing the online system physically from within the state.
Rich Roberts, President of Digital US for Sportech said: "We are delighted to be officially launching www.resortscasino.com to the people of New Jersey. This marks a significant step for SNG and for online gaming in the State."
Morris Bailey, owner of Resorts Casino Hotel, a Mohegan Sun property, said: "The launch of www.ResortsCasino.com and debut of the new digital Resorts iGaming Lounge offers all of our casino customers the best gaming experience possible. We will offer our players the opportunity to play all their favorite casino slots and table games at their leisure anywhere in New Jersey, while also providing customers the chance to experience online gaming during their visit to Resorts in Atlantic City."
