Ocean Resort Atlantic City Prepares to Launch Online Casino

It’s been a whirlwind few weeks for the brand new Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City, and its not showing signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Nearly two weeks after a grand opening alongside the new Hard Rock Atlantic City, Ocean Resort has announced a partnership with GAN to get an online casino up and running, sparking a lot of buzz and excitement.

GAN A Trusted Name and Perfect Fit

As a London-based business-to-business supplier of Internet gaming enterprise software-as-a-service solutions, GAN has established itself as a force to be reckoned with and respected in the online gambling world.

It’s certified to the highest standards of internet gambling by maintaining a coveted and incredibly difficult to obtain United Kingdom Gambling License. It developed the GameSTACK software system which it offers to land-based casinos as a turnkey solution for real-money and virtual gaming.

For a fledgling casino like Ocean Resort, working with a company that’s already navigated the choppy waters of European online gaming will certainly give it a competitive edge.

Business Wire Report Lays Out Benefits of Deal

A report from Business Wire highlights the following elements of the agreement and what it means for both companies involved:

  • GAN’s second client in New Jersey for real money Online Gaming and GAN’s first ‘bricks & mortar’ casino operating real money Internet gaming on GAN’s platform in New Jersey (existing GAN client PaddyPower Betfair plc does not own/operate a casino in New Jersey)
  • First client to adopt Turnkey Managed Services provided by GAN from an experienced team in New Jersey including technical operations management, customer services, payments management and associated regulatory consultancy
  • Second New Jersey casino operator to license GAN’s US Patent for delivering converged online-to-retail real money Internet gaming.
  • First US client to launch ‘dual-mode’ real money Online Gaming for New Jersey resident patrons alongside ‘freemium’ Simulated Gaming for patrons’ residents both inside and outside of New Jersey (~50% of Atlantic City casinos’ patrons live outside the borders of New Jersey)
  • Launch of ‘Ocean Resort Casino’ branded Internet sports betting expected in Q4 2018 following the repeal of PASPA on May 14, 2018

Executives Excited for Partnership Opportunities

GAN chief executive Dermot Smurfit is excited to grow the provider’s brand in America as the internet gaming industry continues to grow in the New World thanks to favorable legislation in recent years.

“Ocean Resort Casino is a fabulous casino property, unarguably offering the best quality gaming & hotel in Atlantic City, which has now been optimized for success by the new ownership and leadership. We’re privileged to bring this immense property to life online, just as it relaunches in the traditional retail casino market. We’re excited to deliver not just another ‘me too’ Internet casino, but to also bring online for the first time the capabilities unlocked only by GAN’s convergence Patent which may give casino patrons in New Jersey a compelling economic rationale to play online with Ocean Resort Casino rather than established incumbent casino operators already online in this fast-growing market. Ocean Resort Casino is anticipated to be material to GAN’s revenue and earnings in H2 2018.”

Ocean Resort CEO Frank Leone is excited to emply a top-of-the-line option like GAN to handle online business and to ensure the new casino offers a highly desirable end product in what should be a competitive New Jersey internet casino market.

“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. 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.”
