PointsBet, through its partnership with Evolution, announced Wednesday that live gaming is now available for New Jersey betting customers on its online casino app and desktop site.
Customers now can have access to a live dealer experience in broadcast streams from Evolution’s studios in Atlantic City.
New Jersey is the second state, following Michigan, in which PointsBet has launched live gaming on the company's proprietary iGaming platform.
PointsBet, which is headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, launched its online casino product in New Jersey in July, through its relationship with the Bally's Corporation and Bally's Atlantic City Hotel & Casino. PointsBet has had sports betting within the state since January 2019.
“Live gaming in New Jersey represents a serious expansion of our relationship with Evolution and with our live gaming players,” Aaron O'Sullivan, PointsBet's vice president of online casino revenue, said in a news release. “PointsBet is committed to providing the most thrilling casino experience to our users. We received tremendous feedback and a clear message that users want more options, including live play. These games are fun and interactive, and we know they will be enthusiastically received.”
PointsBet also was selected as one of nine operators licensed by neighboring New York for mobile sports betting, which is expected later this month or early February.
The other operators are BallyBet, BetMGM, Caesars, DraftKings NY, FanDuelNY, Resorts World, Rush Street International (parent company of BetRivers) and WynnBET.
Assortment of Live Games
Live dealer games available to PointsBet customers are American Roulette, American Auto Roulette, American Lightning Roulette, Blackjack, Infinite Blackjack, Three Card Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold 'em and Speed Baccarat. Also available is Dreamcatcher, where dealers spin a wheel and interact with players placing bets on 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 or 40, the number on which they expect the wheel to stop.
“Every market offers new opportunities and technology challenges, and we are incredibly proud of our team for positioning us to launch Live Casino in New Jersey,” PointsBet President of Product and Technology Manjit Gombra Singh said in a statement. “Our proprietary technology stack gives us an edge that our competitors are unable to match, and the ability to provide more options as we continue to deliver our services throughout the U.S. and Canada.”
PointsBet operates its sports betting product in Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Virginia, and West Virginia. PointsBet will continue to expand its live gaming options and aims to launch branded tables in New Jersey later this month.
