Trump Entertainment’s two Atlantic City venues, the Trump Plaza and Trump Taj Mahal, have become the latest casinos to secure online gaming licences from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE).
The two casinos are set to begin an invitation-only, 5-day trial of their iGaming offerings ahead of the market opening on November 26th.
In a statement Trump Entertainment Resorts chief executive Robert Griffin said he was “very pleased” that the casinos had become the third and fourth venues to secure approval, after Golden Nugget Atlantic City was awarded a licence Wednesday and the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa certified last week.
“This is very positive for the company and the Atlantic City market," Griffin added.
The Trump Taj Mahal’s offering will be powered by Nevada licensee Ultimate Gaming, with the Ultimate Poker operator providing poker and casino products hosted on its iGaming platform, while the Plaza will go live in partnership with UK companies Betfair and GameAccount. Both offerings will be launched under their respective partner’s brands.
The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement is expected to begin approving online gaming suppliers once it has completed the licensing process for the land-based venues.
