888 Holdings has recently renewed its interest in its New Jersey-based internet casino, 888casino NJ, as the state is close to becoming an epicenter for gambling in the U.S. As one of the only states to offer online gambling and as a state on the cusp of offering legal sports betting, New Jersey has been a hotbed of gambling activity leading to increased investments in developments based in the state.
Unsurprisingly hotel tycoons have also joined the Garden State boon, most recently with the announcement of the grand opening of the Hard Rock Atlantic City. MGM Resorts International CEO Jim Murren also has gone to great lengths to ensure his properties in New Jersey will be ready for legalized sports betting.
With all of this excitement surrounding New Jersey, it’s no wonder why 888 would be primed to jump in on the action, as the saying goes it’s “better late than never.” The company has undergone a fresh push to increase content available to consumers by adding a slew of new casino games to the website.
Swedish online gambling software provider NetEnt is providing 43 of the new games, while IGT is contributing 18 titles to complete the overhaul. In a press release, 888 noted that the “heavyweight round” of additions will be an attempt to boost consumers reached in what should be a big year for gambling in the state as well as the country.
“The entertainment giant has just announced yet another heavyweight round of additions to the ring. This time, the new games come from NetEnt. It’s no wonder 888’s fans are lining up for the rich array of new games released! Thanks to [888 Casino’s] recent partnerships with NYX, NetEnt, SGI and now IGT, 888’s global casino brands have expanded their games portfolio to be one of the most diverse in the industry.”
The numbers for New Jersey’s internet casino industry have never been better and there’s little to suggest they’ll slow down. The industry is expected to surpass the billion-dollar marker in revenue this year and has progressively pulled in record figures from the start of 2018.
Some of the most popular games offered by NetEnt will now be available on the NJ website, and two of the most notable new selections will be Planet of the Apes and Guns N’ Roses. Planet of the Apes, based on the 2011 reboot of the classic film series, produces cinema-quality visuals to bring an authentic and intense gaming experience.
Guns N’ Roses is as bodacious and thrilling as the band it’s named for and shares its brand with. Set to a soundtrack of classic tracks that every 80’s metalhead and modern day fan alike would appreciate, the 5-reel slot with 20-paylines is stuffed full of features.
Adding to the fun, 888poker, the company’s poker division, has made a brand new bonus available with a chance to win big. The classic touch of spinning a wheel to reveal an extra prize is now an option for online poker players. Players need only to sign up at the New Jersey-based poker site to get in on the action.
They’ll be granted a generous $20 in credit before even being prompted to deposit any of their own money. It’s a simple as registering at 888, downloading the poker platform and collecting your bonus. Players must of course be 21 years of age or older.
The actual bonus will consist of a $10 free play for selected casino games on 888casino, $4 worth of money bonus that shall be credited to the player’s bankroll and 6 tournament poker tickets with a value of $1 each.
