Caesars Interactive Entertainment Launches Three Online Casino Websites for New Jersey Residents & Visitors

On June 26, 1979, Caesars Atlantic City first opened its doors.  Now 34 years later, a new era of gaming in New Jersey begins, as three online real-money gaming offerings under the Caesars umbrella begin entertaining New Jersey residents and visitors.

Starting at 6 pm tonight, consumers 21 or older inside New Jersey's borders and who have been vetted through our responsible gaming screening can log onto CaesarsCasino.com, HarrahsCasino.com or WSOP.com to play poker, blackjack, roulette, baccarat, video slots and video poker as part of the soft launch.  

Joel Galin, chief editor and manager of OCC, one of the top casino review sites in Canada, says he's preparing to open a US version of the site which will feature the brand listed above on the new site - which usually means a strong revenue stream for them in the short run.

Caesars Interactive Entertainment, Inc. (CIE), the online arm of Caesars Acquisition Company (CAC) (Nasdaq: CACQ), is offering three distinct brands right out of the gate.

Both the Caesars and the Harrah's names will become the longest-running casino brands in New Jersey to offer online gaming, and the World Series of Poker is the longest-running poker brand in existence, with roots dating back to 1970.  WSOP.com launched real-money online poker in Nevada two months ago.
