is the No. 1 online casino operator by market share in New Jersey and the recent winner of eGR North America 2018 Operator of the Year Award.
This agreement is the latest in a series of U.S. partnerships announced by SBTech, following Churchill Downs

A customizable and highly flexible front end was designed specifically for Golden Nugget Casinos to ensure maximum differentiation, while the industry's most advanced responsible gaming infrastructure will enable SBTech to meet the licensing requirements set out by both states. Similarly, a bespoke trading strategy and non-pooled risk management powered by unrivaled levels of automation will allow Golden Nugget Casinos to offer unique pricing for all U.S. sports.
As the undisputed pacesetter in the in-play arena, SBTech's live offering, especially in U.S. sports, will reinforce the long-term success of Golden Nugget's sportsbooks, with the industry's widest range of events and markets and groundbreaking new mobile-first features such as Pulse Bet (patent pending) and Action Betting expected to boost in-play turnover from key demographics.
SBTech CEO Richard Carter said: "I'm very pleased to confirm our latest strategic partnership with a major U.S. operator. Golden Nugget fully shares our vision of leveraging the power of innovation to achieve sports betting success, and as the U.S. market matures, I'm confident of the potential for further collaboration in multiple jurisdictions."
