Richard Branson’s Virgin Group is ready to launch its online casino gambling site, Virgincasino.com, in New Jersey.
Players will be able to start playing on the new site from Friday. The Virgin Group applied for an online gambling licence last year during the first application process, and while the application was successful, a delayed launch was agreed upon due to problems involving login problems, payment issues and software glitches.
Virgin is partnered with online game maker Gamesys, which also runs the Tropicana online casino site.
“We’ve been rehearsing this moment for several years in the UK, including dealing with players who have bet more than $4.3 billion on Gamesys games in 2012,” said Lee Fenton, chief operating officer of Gamesys.
As per New Jersey online gambling rules, the site will only be accessible to players located inside New Jersey borders. Players will be able to choose among 30 games.
New Jersey’s Internet gambling sites turned out $8.4 million in revenue between the time of its launch on November 21st 2013 and the month of December, 2013. As of Jan. 12, users had created 155,374 accounts with New Jersey gambling sites.
