A new online casino has launched in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Boyd Gaming Corporation and FanDuel Group have officially started services via a Startdust dot com site and online apps. The launch marks the 15th online casino for Pennsylvania and joins an already large market in the Garden State.
The Stardust Casino was a brick-and-mortar facility located on the Las Vegas Strip decades ago. Today, the brand is revitalized via the online gaming site, providing players with a glimpse of a bygone era as well as plenty of new and exciting titles to choose from.
Reviving the Stardust Brand
Last month, Boyd Gaming Corporation and FanDuel announced they were planning to bring back the Stardust brand with online casino gaming sites. Boyd is the owner of Stardust Casino, so it was easily able to use the brand to create the new gaming option. In Pennsylvania, the Valley Forge Casino is being used to house the Stardust gaming skin.
FanDuel Group President Amy Howe commented that the new Stardust online casino will keep the great games that players were fond of with the Betfair brand and incorporate a new look with the old brand. Players can enjoy the style and vision of old Las Vegas while playing modern gambling games.
In both New Jersey and Pennsylvania, Stardust Casino offers a market-leading product with a unified platform. The Boyd Gaming B Connected player program is included so players can earn incentives while taking part in online gaming.
Playing via Stardust
Players who are located in New Jersey and Pennsylvania can access the Starburst brand. The app for the casino can be found via iOS and Android devices in their play stores. There is also the stardustcasino.com site that works perfectly for desktops.
You must be physically located in the state to take part. Players also have to be 21 years of age or older to legally access games. Players can use existing Betfair Casino sign-in information to log in to the site in NJ or use FanDuel sign-in for both states.
For new players, the Stardust offers plenty of options to load money into an account. Use online banking, debit, and credit cards from Visa and MasterCard, as well as the sportsbook cage at Valley Forge. For withdrawals, players can use check, PayPal, the cash cage, and online banking.
The game selection is decent at Stardust, with 88 slot games on offer including Divine Fortune, Cleopatra, Starburst, Treasures of the Pyramid, and many more. Table games are also provided including blackjack, baccarat, roulette, and more.
In Pennsylvania, Stardust offers live dealer games from Evolution Gaming. Titles include Slingshot Roulette, blackjack, Infinite Blackjack, Baccarat, and more.
It will be interesting to see how the online casino brand fares in both states. The markets are already quite large, so will there be enough traffic to go around to help the casino earn enough revenues to survive? Is it too late for a new brand to get started in each state? We will keep track of how well the Stardust performs and provide an update as information is released.
