The installation will be the first outside Europe, its first installation in the United States and also the first to feature American (double zero) roulette. The table will be a five-camera installation with a customized rig and large screens that feature live-streamed game feed from the table.

Free parking — Premiere cardholders who earn two tier points during a gaming day park free in the self-park garage at Resorts. Check any promotional kiosk to confirm the points are in your account and present a valid Star card at the exit.

And the winner is — Golden Nugget Atlantic City received four 2018 North America eGaming Review awards last month. The awards, in their fourth year, recognize excellence in the online gaming industry.

For the second year in a row, Golden Nugget received the “Operator of the Year” award, as well as “Casino Operator of the Year,” “Best Product Innovation” and “Acquisition Strategy.”

The “Best Product Innovation” award recognized America’s first real money online live casino floor roulette. A live video feed captures the action from the casino floor, and streams it online so patrons can play from anywhere in New Jersey.

Plus size model — Resorts has added another tier level to its Star card player loyalty program. Perhaps recognizing the large gap between its Paramount and Red Carpet levels – Paramount cardholders must earn 600 tier points in a 12-month period; Red Carpet cardholders must earn 2,500 – Paramount Plus cardholders must earn 1,250.

Additional benefits include complimentary players club admission Sunday through Friday and the option of using comp dollars to pay any room fees.

Match games — In addition to its player card match, Ocean Resort will give $100 in free play and two complimentary room nights to its new Black cardholders, $50 in free play and one night to its new Platinum cardholders, $25 in free play to its new Gold cardholders, and $15 in free play to its new Blue cardholders. The room night offers are good through Aug. 30; the match, Sept. 30.

Golden Nugget has extended its tier match and upgrade program through Sept. 3.
