Scientific Games subsidiary Williams Interactive has announced that its library of casino game content has gone live for the first time for New Jersey players through its partnership with the Gamesys-powered Virgin Casino and Tropicana Atlantic City online gaming websites.

The companies agreed a partnership in March this year, with the operator integrating the supplier’s Remote Game Server (RGS) into its platform, extending the existing European-facing relationship between the companies into the US market.

A selection of Williams’ most popular titles, land-based titles developed by WMS repurposed for online, are now available at Tropicanacasino.com and Virgincasino.com. These include the Raging Rhino, Giant’s Gold and Zeus III slots, with more to go live over the coming months.

Williams Interactive chief executive Orrin J. Edidin described the launch as an exciting milestone in his company’s mission to “provide the world’s most compelling iGaming entertainment.”

“With a library of content that has long been amongst the most popular on casino floors throughout the US and Canada, providing this authentic casino content library online for New Jersey players for the first time is a proud accomplishment for Williams Interactive,” he said.

The roll-out of the supplier’s content with Gamesys is the first of several launches in US iGaming markets scheduled to take place throughout 2014.

The company has already agreed a strategic slots partnership with bwin.party, announced in April this year, that will see Williams Interactive games go live on the company’s own sites, and the Borgata-branded sites.

It will also launch its content portfolio for online casinos in Delaware, with the company’s parent Scientific Games selected to power the state’s iGaming offering in partnership with 888, and enter the Canadian market through a partnership with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation.

“We’re enthusiastic for the additional North American launches expected this year, and the benefits our casino customers will see from the ongoing convergence of online and offline casino entertainment that our game library empowers,” Edidin added.
