The live dealer games on Golden Nugget Online Casino will not shut down at 3 a.m. tonight. In fact, they will not shut down anytime in the foreseeable future.

That’s because the Golden Nugget Online Casino live dealer studio in Atlantic City is now open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

That means players can access the traditional casino/online casino hybrid games around the clock.

The first live dealer games

Golden Nugget became the first NJ gambling site to offer live dealer games three years ago when it launched live versions of:

  • Blackjack
  • Roulette; and
  • Baccarat

These were versions of traditional table games played out the same way they are in brick-and-mortar casinos across the US. The difference was the action was streamed online and viewers were able to bet using an online interface.

Golden Nugget soon allowed other NJ gambling site operators access to the games. Then it added more.

First came the Texas Hold’em-style table game Live Casino Hold’em in January 2018. Then it was Live Casino Floor Roulette in March 2018, streaming the action right from the Golden Nugget Atlantic City casino floor.

Finally, Golden Nugget launched Live Unlimited Blackjack in June 2018, allowing an unlimited number of players to bet on the same live blackjack hand.

Live dealer games go 24/7

Since Golden Nugget Atlantic City is a 24/7 operation, so was Live Casino Floor Roulette. It was the first live dealer game to run 24/7.

Now, Golden Nugget has extended the hours at its live dealer studio on the property so all the live dealer games are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Golden Nugget’s Online Gaming SVP and General Manager Thomas Winter said player demand drove the change:

“We continue to demonstrate the never-ending commitment of GoldenNuggetCasino.com to providing New Jersey online casino players with the best online gaming experience. Our patrons asked and we delivered by opening our live dealer studio around the clock.”

Golden Nugget rises to the top

Golden Nugget Online Casino launched in November 2013, and it has grown into the top-grossing online casino in the state. Not coincidentally, it also boasts the largest selection of games online in NJ.

Winter has previously indicated live dealer games are some of the most popular on the site. He has also claimed live dealer games have helped drive a 150% increase in online table game revenues.

May 2019 Division of Gaming Enforcement figures were released last week. They showed Golden Nugget posted more than $14 million in revenue last month.

That represents close to a 37% NJ online gambling market share. It also means more than $1 out of every $3 bet online in NJ is wagered at Golden Nugget.
