Resorts Digital Gaming has already announced it has an agreement in place with Greco, which the New-Jersey-based arm of Resorts Casino and hotel hopes will ‘herald a wider shift in the local industry, worth $3.12 billion to the state economy.’
Furthermore, the deal is in place to protect casinos from bonus abuse, a type of scam that sees players able to ‘extract $17,875 in value per identity if only targeting welcome offers’ – according to Greco’s Ozric Vondervelden and Philip O’Driscoll.
Commenting on the launch in New Jersey, Ed Andrewes, CEO of Resorts Digital Gaming, said: “The fact that Greco is now registered as a vendor is great news for us and other operators in the state.
“Greco’s risk engine will enable us to combat one of the biggest challenges we’re facing at the moment, and we are looking forward to leveraging off their considerable experience in the European market.”
Greco is currently in discussions with other online operators to implement its system across the state – while it is also looking at getting similar licences in other parts of the US.
Total gaming revenue for the year so far stands at $3.87bn, 12% higher than was reported at this stage last year.
