Yet Another Land Based Casino Goes Online
Added: Oct. 10, 2016
If you have been paying attention as of late you already know that the state of New Jersey is in no uncertain terms an outstanding online gambling casino success story. From its first forays into the world of online gambling sites back in 2013, New Jersey has taken a rather bold position with respect to offering up legal online casino action to its residents.
Keep in mind that one facet of the New Jersey law that allows for legal online casino action contains a mandate that any online gambling site offering its service to New Jersey residents must have some sort of relationship with existing land based casino gambling sites. Over the past few years, an increasing number of New Jersey brick and mortar casinos have slowly been migrating over to the online casino world.
The latest land based casino to announce such a move is none other than SugarHouse Casino. Pay attention to the fact that SugarHouse Casino only recently opened its doors back in 2010. In addition, it is rather interesting to note that SugarHouse Casino also just completed a rather sizable, as in $164 Million expansion of its casino facilities in New Jersey.
But more to the point of this article, SugarHouse Casino also just launched an online casino that is called PlaySugarHouse.com. As you might well expect, the online gambling site PlaySugarHouse.com is necessarily tied into the land based SugarHouse Casino.
For the record, PlaySugarHouse.com will be operated by none other than Rush Street Interactive. Note that Rush Street Interactive just so happens to be the online division of a Chicago, IL based company by the name of Rush Street Gaming.
Back to PlaySugarHouse.com and what New Jersey online casino players can expect. Start with the more than 200 casino games to be found at PlaySugarHouse.com. Naturally, there are the to be expected traditional casino favorites such as blackjack, roulette, and of course poker in several versions.
You will not be surprised to learn that the unveiling of PlaySugarHouse.com prompts the oft asked question of whether or not the online casino will pull traditional casino visitors away from SugarHouse Casino. However the CEO of Rush Street Gaming is rather quick to dismiss such a claim. In his words: “..Our hope is that one plus one equals three and that’s been the experience of brick and mortar operators in New Jersey.” Carlin continued by adding: “…it’s a different experience, the reason you come to the casino might not be the reason you play online, brick and mortars are more social and online is more personal.”
Well there you go. Straight from the CEO himself. In other words, what the CEO is really saying is that adding in the online version to a land based casino will have the effect of expanding the number of total casino patrons.
