Fanatics Ready to Roll in New Jersey

It has been an interesting week in the iGaming industry in the state of New Jersey, as there have been a couple of big announcements. The first big announcement was that 888 Holdings will be leaving the state, which means that the 888poker app is going to shut down. 

Customers that are currently playing on the 888poker app are going to have less than a month to remove their funds or that money is going to be lost forever. That’s not going to be a move that will significantly impact the revenue numbers, but the other announcement might do just that. 

Fanatics Betting & Gaming has announced that the online casino app is now live in the state of New Jersey, and players should have been able to access the top games on May 8th. This is now the fourth market that Fanatics has been able to enter, and it’s the one that they needed the most.

The Fanatics online casino app in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia has been popular, but those three states are not going to bring in a ton of revenue. Not only will Fanatics see some good results in New Jersey, it could soon become one of the leaders. 

Great Game Available

Fanatics hasn’t been around the iGaming industry long, but it has already shown that it knows how to create a great mobile app. When it comes to the online casino, Fanatics is working with Evolution to create some great content that is available to players. 

Evolution has worked with Fanatics to create some exclusive games, and that includes a unique blackjack experience. There are also going to be some great live dealer games available through this mobile app, and that’s a form of gaming that remains popular. 

All of the top Fanatics online casino games that are in other states will be available in New Jersey as well, but there will be some added features. The Fanatics loyalty rewards program in New Jersey will allow players to rack up points through the online casino and online sportsbook. 

This mobile app can allow players to toggle back and forth between each gaming option, and that should let players navigate to the top options quickly. 

Time to Shine

Fanatics will once again be taking over the online casino license that used to be occupied by PointsBet in the state of New Jersey. PointsBet is no longer operating in the United States as it sold all of its U.S. assets to Fanatics. 

This transition has already happened in the other three states, and the process is going to be the same in New Jersey as well. Customers are simply going to be able to use their same information to login at Fanatics, and everything will be waiting for them. 

That means that Fanatics is launching with a nice customer base already established, and other players waiting to join ust because of the name. Fanatics can now spend money on building up the online casino app to becomes the best overall option.
