Big Time Gaming makes NJ debut with Golden Nugget


Online slot specialist Big Time Gaming (BTG) has launched in the New Jersey igaming market, with its games live on Golden Nugget’s online casino via Scientific Games’ Open Gaming System (OGS). 

The deployment sees BTG and Scientific Games expand a partnership that has seen the developer’s titles become some of the best performing on the OGS. Its full range of games have gone live on the Golden Nugget site, including titles using its wildly successful Megaways mechanic. 

Megaways is a random reel modifier which allows any spin produce a different number of symbols across the reels, creating a huge number of possible game scenarios, and virtually endless payline combinations to enhance the player experience. SG Digital has already struck a licensing deal to use the feature in its own content, with Medusa Megaways the first to go live.

“Our content and Scientific Games’ platform make for a perfect New Jersey offering,” BTG chief executive Nik Robinson said. “The US digital gaming market is gaining traction, and we’re excited to provide Golden Nugget’s players with our growing library of innovative titles.” 

SG Digital senior vice president of casino and platforms Dylan Slaney said the Golden Nugget launch was “a perfect example” of what the supplier’s Connect partner programme could do for developers. 

“By leveraging BTG’s innovative prowess, our strong game brands (both licensed and proprietary), and Golden Nugget’s loyal audience, we’ve created a truly unprecedented gaming ecosystem for New Jersey players,” Slaney said.

Golden Nugget general manager of igaming Thomas Winter added: “Working with Scientific Games and Big Time Gaming to bring these innovative Megaways slot games to the US provides our growing player base an exclusive first look at these games that are pioneering the online slots industry.”
