PointsBet online casino is still trying to find the right time to launch. New Jersey online gambling is almost like being in-person at a casino except online, and PointsBet will have similar games available when they launch. Evolution Gaming for partnered with PointsBet to operate the iGaming sector of the business.
Evolution is the home of live dealer games that anyone can play online. Originally coming into New Jersey in 2016, live dealer games are becoming a staple in the Garden State, and can now be found in a majority of online casinos in the state.
For PointsBet, they will have live casino components within its online casino that players will be able to take advantage of. Evolution has been operating in Atlantic City since 2018 and is also looking to launch operations in Pennsylvania and Michigan.
PointsBet Online Casino
Evolution Gaming has live casino games that are considered “first-person” to generate a different experience for the player.
First-person games give you a different camera angle as if you were at the poker table playing yourself. The idea is to give you the same view you normally would play at a live casino instead of how you would play at home.
Evolution also has a game show category that is available in the Garden State. This allows players to find game show classics like Deal or No Deal, or even to the popular board game, Monopoly. For poker, the games for that include three, five, and seven-card games.
The slot machine games are normally the biggest draw to the online casino. As of writing this, PointsBet has not created a partnership with an online slots company, but do not think they will not have something in the works before launch. They could even create their own online slots games.
PointsBet is hoping to launch in the second half of 2020, which will be a good time especially with the pandemic still in full swing.
Moving to Online Casinos and Poker
New Jersey’s online poker industry is seeing a high volume of action thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.
From the start of the pandemic through July, New Jersey has brought in $21.6 million from poker players on the top three sites. Go figure, numbers are up over 100 percent compared to last year. The money is coming in from both cash games and tournament entry fees.
The poker numbers are not the same as New Jersey’s online casino numbers, although both are doing very well during the pandemic.
These numbers are just for poker alone. Since the pandemic began, mobile gaming is skyrocketing as casinos remain closed, or bettors would prefer to gamble at home. PointsBet launching its online casino at the end of the year is perfect timing.
PointsBet is putting on the finishing touches on what should be one of the best online casinos in Atlantic City. The idea of putting in live dealer first-person poker is going to attract a lot of players when they are ready to launch.
PointsBet is taking a step out of the box with its online casino outside of what others have done. This should help create market share in a soon to be booming industry.
