Virgin Casino Launches Its New Jersey Venture

Online game maker Gamesys and Virgin Group today announced the launch of their new online gambling site, VirginCasino.com. Unique game play, responsible gaming practices, and investing in New Jersey and its residents are top priorities of the newest entrant to the state’s recently legalized online gambling market.

Virgin Casino was among the first online casinos granted approval from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement in November to launch a 24-hour Internet gaming operation in the state. Virgin Casino has big plans for New Jersey, which includes assisting the struggling job market by making New Jersey its casino gaming headquarters in the U.S.

“We’ve been rehearsing this moment for several years in the UK, including dealing with players who have bet more than $4.3 billion on Gamesys games in 2013,” explained Lee Fenton, Gamesys’ COO. “VirginCasino.com has the most sought-after products, the most outrageous promotions, and a completely fun, safe online gambling experience designed especially for our new friends in New Jersey.”

One of the newest and greatest gameplay experiences is the Community Jackpot, which holds steady at $20,000 even after a player hits the Grand Prize. When the player wins a $10,000 jackpot all active players within the past hour are eligible for a share of another $10,000 jackpot. Plus, card fees are nonexistent so players won’t have to pay a fee just to access their money.

A safe gambling experience was a development focal point for Virgin Casino during the lengthy creation process. Virgin Casino protects the identity and money of its users by using the technology, encryption and complex layers of security now employed in banks—those same technologies used in verifying the person’s identity and location. Virgin Casino’s checks and balances system sets limits for both playing time and the amount of money that can be deposited over a period of time to help people manage their time and allotment of game play.

Virgin Casino will showcase more than 30 uniquely designed casino games such as blackjack, roulette, baccarat and amazing slots like Secrets of the Phoenix. Many more games and slots are in the works for later in 2014.

“We hope to provide New Jersey players with a globally leading, safe, fun and rewarding online gambling experience,” said Sir Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
