Those who love playing slot games at online casinos in New Jersey are going to have new games to play. That’s because of the news that Digital Gaming Corporations’ (DGC) B2B  iGaming Division have announced their online content will now be available in the state by visiting the FanDuel site.

“Slot games such as ‘Thunderstruck Wild,’ ‘Mask of Amun’ and ‘Assassin Moon’ will be thrilling online casino players. It’s not just in New Jersey that DGC is expanding into. They are also going to be available in Michigan and Pennsylvania’ - said spokesperson, online gambling guide in New Jersey. 

The B2B iGaming Division CCO is Neill White and he’s thrilled with the expansion. He believes that their slot games “not only meet but exceed” the expectations of those who love playing at casinos.  

The quality of your content is always vitally important. That’s particularly the case in the highly competitive online gambling business. That fact was pressed home by Asaf Noifeld who is the MD  of Casino at FanDuel. Commenting on the deal with DGC, he said: "Content is the foundation of  our online casino offering and that’s why partnerships such as this with DGC are so important.”  

This deal follows a similar one between DGC and Caesars Digital that began in May 2023. That also sees their impressive portfolio of slots being available in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and  Michigan. 

It’s been a busy year for DGC as earlier this year, Super Group Limited acquired DGC. Super  Group is the parent company of online sports and casino business Betway. They are the latest overseas company to look at expanding in the US. 

Not long after the deal was announced, Super Group announced the sale of the non-core B2B  assets of DGC to Games Global. The aim is for Super Group to concentrate on their BC2  growth in the US. For Games Global, it’s an opportunity to continue their US expansion. 

The online gambling industry in America continues to grow, especially in New Jersey. The US  state has long been associated with land-based casinos in Atlantic City. The arrival of the internet has changed the gambling industry with players being able to gamble 24/7 either on their laptops, tablets, or mobile phones.

James Plousis is the chair of the New Jersey Casino Control Commission and he’s seen how the changes have affected the gambling industry in the state. Not just in terms of playing casino games online but in terms of sports betting too.  

Gambling at online casinos has been legal in the state since 2013. That was for an initial ten-year period which has now been reached. With the industry doing so well, the bill that legalized online casinos has now been extended for another five years. It’s good news for the digital casinos but also for state coffers who receive 15% of online gaming revenue in tax payments. 

Five years after the online casino launch, sports betting was also legalized after a US Supreme  Court ruling. That saw individual states able to have the final say on legalizing gambling, not the  Federal Government. 

Mr. Plousis says that both casinos and sports betting are now permanent sections of the state’s gambling industry. 

Recent revenue figures have illustrated just how important the online side of gambling in New  Jersey has become. “Gains in all three reported areas — casino win, internet gaming win, and sports wagering revenue — demonstrate that online and traditional gaming is a winning combination,” said Plousis. 

Land-based casinos aren’t doing as well as they have in the past. They are still struggling to reach pre-pandemic levels. Many have an online presence but to do that they have taken on partners who can receive as much as 70% of online revenues. 

For online gambling in New Jersey, it’s a different story though. Players love the ease with which they can just log on and begin playing their favorite games. With the new content available thanks to these new deals, they are likely to become even more popular. 

May of this year saw the online gambling industry in New Jersey nearly break its monthly record. Online casino revenue in May was 18.7% higher than in the same period last year. Some casinos in the state saw higher percentage increases as their business continued to expand. 

A total revenue figure of $161.4 million was achieved, just less than the record of $165.7 million that was achieved in March 2023. The following month saw online gambling revenue of $149.3  million, up 12.1% from 2022. Online slot revenue was $146.7 million so you can see how important it is to an casino to have an impressive portfolio of slot games.
