Scientific Games to power Golden Nugget launch in New Jersey and West Virginia
Scientific Games has bolstered its long-term partnership with Golden Nugget Online Gaming following the launch of OpenBet sports technology across New Jersey and Virginia with the leading U.S. casino operator, as well as a dual integration of digital sports betting and iGaming in West Virginia.
Golden Nugget has entrusted the Company’s digital sports betting technology to deliver its brand new online and mobile sportsbook offering in both Virginia and West Virginia. This includes the integration of the world’s most reliable and scalable betting engine that is celebrating its 25thanniversary this year, as well as a full risk and liability management service; powered by Don Best Sports.
The launch in West Virginia is complemented with the deployment of OpenGaming, Scientific Games’ market-leading content aggregation platform. Golden Nugget’s online casino offering in the state features content developed by Scientific Games’ in-house studios, along with games supplied by a wide range of third-party providers. In addition, the operator has access to complementary features and a host of responsible gaming tools to offer the best online casino experience.
Earlier this year, Golden Nugget launched its new mobile sportsbook in New Jersey powered by OpenBet technology and content, and Scientific Games is set to follow this up over the coming months by delivering its retail solutions to the operator’s hotel and resort in Atlantic City. At “The Sportsbook”, players can place wagers on their favorite U.S. sports via multiple self-service betting kiosks supplied by the Company.
Thomas Winter, President, Golden Nugget Online Gaming, said: “Existing customers of Golden Nugget have truly embraced legalized sports betting and iGaming since we first introduced our online offering. Thanks to the continued support of Scientific Games and its modern OpenBet technology and OpenGaming platform, we are very excited to announce these range of launches.
We know the robust and powerful capabilities that both solutions provide and are looking forward to delivering yet more unmissable betting and gaming experiences to even more players across the nation.” Cathryn Lai, Chief Commercial Officer at OpenBet, said:

The entire team worked tirelessly to facilitate these new state launches, and we look forward to working with Golden Nugget across new projects in the future.”
Robert Hays, Vice President Commercial – Americas, Digital at Scientific Games, said: “Launching OpenGaming with Golden Nugget in West Virginia is exciting news for us. Our mix of land-based inspired iGaming content and innovative games has proven very successful with the operator in other states. We’re sure that Golden Nugget players in West Virginia will love the range of new online games that are now on offer to them in the digital space.”
