Top manufacturer of slot games, Everi, has announced a new partnership deal with Roar Digital. With the deal, the manufacturer will now expand its presence in New Jersey. Roar Digital is a company created by GVC Holdings and MGM Resorts International. The group currently operates three online casinos in the Garden State, party, BetMGM and Borgata.
Because of the new deal, all three of the online casino brands will be able to offer the popular slots of Everi. The company offers a three-reel stepper option that is based on the company’s mechanical games. Three games have already went live and Everi announced they are going to offer more very soon. A new game titled Hot Spot 777 will be exclusively available only on Roar brands.
The two companies already work together so this new deal allows them to broaden their partnership. Everi considers Roar Digital to be a leading operator and the partnership is another significant milestone for the company’s digital business.
The deal should only help to further the success of BetMGM, a brand that has been named the market leader this year in the online casinos of the state.
Great Option in Today’s iGaming Climate
The addition of Everi to the Roar Digital sites is a smart one especially considering the current gambling landscape. Many players have switched to online gaming as it is considered a safer alternative to land-based due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Everi is a specialist when it comes to mechanical slot machines, games that land-based players are used to. The stepper slots the brand offers online are very similar to live games. They do not have any fancy animation or story-telling like other online slot games. They are easy to understand and many players prefer this type of gaming.
For players in New Jersey who are making the switch to online gaming, the Everi content will be a nice surprise. It is also important because there could be another wave of shutdowns if the coronavirus continues to be an issue.
When casinos shut down originally, the online casino sites in the Garden State saw an uptick in player traffic. Players who normally would go to a land-based venue were logging online for the first time. If another shut down is imminent, players who prefer land-based gaming will be excited to see the Everi titles found online.
The success of Everi in New Jersey will most likely play a part in potential services for Pennsylvania. Right now, Everi already has a somewhat exclusive deal with Parx Casio. Roar Digital is working on its online casino license in the state and could be approved this month during the next meeting of the Gaming Control Board.
If that is the case, then BetMGM could launch soon in Pennsylvania. This could mean Everi content in that state as well.
For now though, the brand is excited to have launched in New Jersey and looks forward to offering even more great content to players in the Garden State.
