Staff Writer Industry News 4,394

Golden Nugget casino in Atlantic City is increasing its offering with the launch of online live dealer Casino Hold’em poker table.

Traditional Hold’em Revamped!

Atlantic City Golden Nugget had eight tables so far, offering three different games – Blackjack, American roulette and Dragon Bonus Baccarat. This latest addition takes traditional Texas Hold’em and transforms it into a casino table game.

The Casino Hold’em table started operating just before Christmas and can serve an unlimited number of players. It is available to access via desktop, tablet and mobile devices and can be played from $1 a bet with the max set at $250.

It will be available seven days a week from 3 p.m. to 3 a.m. with the exception of Friday and Saturday when they will start earlier from 12 p. m. The software used for this live dealer game comes from Ezugi, a casino developer which is increasing its presence rapidly in the US.

Unlike traditional poker, Casino Hold’em is played against the casino instead of other players.

This variant of Texas Hold’em offers players the chance to wager on side bets for increased odds on hitting a top five-card poker hand, determined from their two hole cards and the first three community cards.

Golden Nugget Becomes the First of a Kind

This New Jersey casino first launched live dealer games back in 2016 and for a long time, they had been the leading casino in gross revenue. Already being the leading online casino operator with more than 470 games, this latest move of adding one more live dealer format solidifies Golden Nugget as number one in live-dealer online games in the regulated US market.

Golden Nugget senior vice-president and general manager of online gaming, Thomas Winter explained that their efforts to be the first to offer a live dealer format of the most popular poker game in the country, portrays their determination to deliver an innovative, world-class product to the customers.

Since American players are in love with poker, this new format will only maintain the strong connection between the player and a dealer in a live environment.

Players needed a change and Golden Nugget only delivered on this request using their unique live-dealer digital platform.
