Online gaming operator PointsBet has launched live gaming for its New Jersey-based customers on its PointsBet online casino app and desktop site via its Evolution partnership.

As part of the collaboration between the two, users of the PointsBet app and site can now receive an “authentic live dealer experience” in streams broadcast from studios in New Jersey. 

Aaron O’Sullivan, PointsBet‘s VP of online casino revenue, stated: “Live gaming in New Jersey represents a serious expansion of our relationship with Evolution and with our live gaming players.

“PointsBet is committed to providing the most thrilling casino experience to our users. We received tremendous feedback and a clear message that users want more options, including live play. These games are fun and interactive, and we know they will be enthusiastically received.”

Now available to PointsBet users in the live dealer games category are blackjack, infinite blackjack, American roulette, American auto roulette, American lightning roulette, three card poker, ultimate Texas hold ’em and speed baccarat.

The category also features the game show-styled Dreamcatcher, where presenters spin a wheel and interact with players placing bets on the number they think the wheel will stop.

“Every market offers new opportunities and technology challenges, and we are incredibly proud of our team for positioning us to launch live casino in New Jersey,” added Manjit Gombra Singh, PointsBet president of product and technology

“Our proprietary technology stack gives us an edge that our competitors are unable to match, and the ability to provide more options as we continue to deliver our services throughout the US and Canada.” 

The second state in which PointsBet launched its live gaming on its proprietary igaming platform, the gaming operator also launched its online casino product in New Jersey in July of last year and has been offering its sports betting products in the Garden State since January 2019.

PointsBet gained online casino access to New Jersey through its relationship with Bally’s Corporation and Bally’s Atlantic City Hotel & Casino.

Looking to the near future, the company aims to release its branded tables in the state later this month.
