According to the Company’s Chairman, President and CEO Tilman J. Fertitta, “We have launched a free internet site in anticipation of the legalization of online gaming in the United States. With combined revenues of over $2.5 billion for Golden Nugget and Landry’s, GoldenNuggetPoker.com will be able to reach over 60 million customers annually.”
Golden Nugget and Landry’s are utilizing Bally Technologies’ iGaming platform to create GoldenNuggetPoker.com, which is a proven technology that has been successfully and securely used in Europe where online gaming is allowed in most jurisdictions. Golden Nugget’s free play poker network already enjoys on average over 25,000 players a day, which is believed to be significantly more than any other domestic gaming company. Golden Nugget filed its online gaming application in February of this year with the state of Nevada and anticipates that it will be among the first interactive gaming operators to be approved in the state.
