The Inside Tour of Golden Nugget’s Live-Dealer Studio.
Customers arriving at the Golden Nugget Atlantic City via the self-parking entrance may or may not notice a hidden casino.
Like a real gambling floor, there are Blackjack, Poker, Roulette and Baccarat tables.
Behind the tinted glass, however, the scene is quite different. Players and gaming chips are nonexistent. Actually, they are live in the virtual world.

* More importantly, Golden Nugget is tops when it comes to NJ online casino industry.
The property reported $17.2 million for December.
For 2019, the Nugget has earned $177 million from online games (good enough for a 68.9% year over year increase).
Online revenue topped land-based ($14.3 million) for the third month in a row.

* There is certainly no shortage of options inside of the Golden Nugget’s secret room (good luck finding the door).

Here is the breakdown of games:
Nine active blackjack tables.

One Baccarat.

One Casino Hold’em® Poker™.

One Roulette.

One Unlimited-21® Blackjack™.

Number of seats available at each table varies by game.

Game designers face rocky path on journey to casino.

Dawn and Billy Takacs own a business, a patent, and a dream.

The couple hope those provide a ticket to success in the longshot world of casino game development.
That’s because their baby, which has yet to make its first dollar, already has cost almost $200,000 over the past 3½ years. And that doesn’t count untold hours of labor ranging from designing the game and debating about color schemes to poring over interminable legal documents and filling out background inspections for multiple gaming jurisdictions...

She and her husband marked a milestone last week: Tulalip Resort Casino in Washington, about 40 miles north of Seattle, began offering their game, a craps derivative called Yo!, marking the first casino placement of the game. Dawn Takacs said casinos in four other states have expressed interest...
