“We are excited to be the first domestic online gaming operator to bring live dealer to the US,” said Golden Nugget chairman and CEO Tilman Fertitta. “This will clearly differentiate us from all other operators in the market, and we invite all online players to try this new and exciting online live gaming experience.”

Thomas Winter, vice president of online gaming at Golden Nugget, said that was now more than ever the destination of choice for New Jersey online players.

“Online live dealer creates true convergence between the casino floor at Golden Nugget Atlantic City and our online casino, which will appeal to the more traditional casino players who have yet to enjoy online real-money gaming,” he said.

Ezugi CEO Kfir Kugler added: "We are honored to partner with Golden Nugget Atlantic City to bring the first ever online live dealer solution to New Jersey. Live dealer games are extremely engaging and belong in the US.”
