U.S. internet wagering group Ultimate Gaming has announced that it has signed a deal with Trump Taj Mahal Associates LLC, which will see the developer's online poker and casino products distributed for real money play in New Jersey.
Casino Listings readers will recall that Ultimate Gaming's poker product "Ultimate Poker" was the first legal real money site to launch in the United States when it opened its virtual doors earlier this year. The firm will be able to offer its services to players throughout The Garden State with the Trump deal, as New Jersey law dictates that all online gaming firms must be partnered with an Atlantic City based casino.
Commenting on the deal, Ultimate Gaming CEO Tobin Prior said, "We feel our technology is a major advantage. Our proprietary software has been proven to meet regulatory requirements and allows for continuous investment and product development. The technology was acquired in 2011 and developed by a U.S. based company with a completely clean regulatory profile."
Ultimate Gaming Chairman Tom Breitling added: "Today we are excited to be entering into an agreement with Trump Taj Mahal Associates to bring online gaming to New Jersey. This represents a huge step forward in our desire to offer Americans across the nation the opportunity to enjoy safe and regulated online games."
Trump Resort Inc. CEO Robert F. Griffin gave his firm's view on the deal, noting: "Ultimate Gaming is a pioneer in the online gaming space and can provide a turnkey solution for our online gaming needs in New Jersey. We are delighted to be working with a trusted partner that has a proven track record."
