PlaySugarHouse.com, Rush Street Interactive's New Jersey-licensed iGaming brand, has become the first site in the state to roll out Konami Gaming’s real-money online slots.
The games have gone live after their free-to-play variants proved particularly successful on the SugarHouse social casino, with titles including Gypsy Fire and Fortune Stacks launching on mobile and desktop.
Konami has integrated the games onto Rush Street's secure gaming platform, which was certified by the NJ Division of Gaming Enforcement and went live in September 2016, operating under Golden Nugget's licence.
"These Konami games are found at hundreds of casino locations worldwide, and we're the first to bring them to New Jersey's online real-money space," Rush Street Interactive president Richard Schwartz said.
"Everything from the graphic animation to game play is the same as the land-based slot machines, and it's right in the palm of your hand," he explained. "Whether you're a fan of Konami at the casino, or simply looking for new online games to play and win, the exclusive premiere of Gypsy Fire and Fortune Stacks offers an authentic online gaming experience to enjoy at your leisure."
The roll out of Konami's games online means there are now more than 300 titles available across all channels in the state.
"This expansion of Konami slot content to SugarHouse Online Casino is a continuation of our long-held collaboration with Rush Street Gaming, dating back to the earliest years of our company," Konami Gaming's senior director of marketing and product management Steve Walther said.
"As gaming entertainment is evolving to mirror changes in consumer consumption, we're thrilled to offer top Konami games to leading online platforms such as PlaySugarHouse.com. They're taking the same games you find at the casino and launching them online so players can wager and win on their favorite games through any personal desktop device or mobile smartphone."
