• First Regulated Live Dealer Casino for the US: NYX/Ezugi

    26 September 2016

    Online software in the states

    The United States has seen a fairly limited amount of success in regulating the online gambling market. A large part of this is because there are 50 different states, and each of them has to regulate the market individually. Recently, we've seen the addition of the very first live dealer online casino experience available from NYX and Ezugi to give players in a regulated US market a chance to play.

    Where to Find This Casino

    Players will be able to get in on the action through the Golden Nugget Casino's website in New Jersey thank to the fact that NYX has launched live dealer games after partnering with Ezugi. This is a part of NYX's OGS platform that they've used to combine games from a number of different providers, including NextGen, to give players a chance to experience lots of different titles from different developers all in one place.

    The Importance of These Games

    When you're playing with a land-based casino, you expect certain things like a certain kind of social atmosphere and interactions with your dealer and other players. Live dealer games online allow you to play games like Baccarat, blackjack, roulette and other titles with the same kind of atmosphere from the comfort of your mobile device or computer. This makes it easy to get into a social gambling experience without having to actually travel to a land-based casino.

    With that having been said, there's also something ironic about playing at the online version of a land-based casino to be able to play live dealer games.

    NYX Making Progress in the US

    NYX and their OGS platform has been pretty important to the online gambling effort, especially in New Jersey. They have a significant market share there, and because they have always been so careful about not operating in unlicensed or unregulated jurisdictions, they don't have to worry about "bad actor" issues that companies like Amaya might have to deal with from time to time. This gives them a leg up on a lot of the competition when it comes to getting into these expanding markets in the US and other parts of the world.
