Veteran Vegas casino Golden Nugget has entered into a partnership with online casino games company Chiligaming to open a new online casino site.  Golden Nugget, originally founded in 1946, is currently owned by Landry’s Incorporated, a Houston-based dining, hospitality, entertainment, and gaming company.  Chiligaming, founded in 2006 by Alexandre Dreyfus, is an international software company specializing in multiplatform casino gaming solutions.

In light of the potential legalization and regulation of online gambling in the U.S., Chiligaming is a particularly suitable partner for Golden Nugget’s online casino project.  Industry experts predict that future regulations may require software standardization that Chiligaming’s unique platform is already suited for.  Their iGaming platform can work with any casino gaming platform or casino content provider. 

Dreyfus said that Chiligaming is quite thrilled to partner with the veteran Vegas casino because its brand is so recognizable in the U.S. market.  Golden Nugget, in addition to its original Vegas casino, also has a casino in Laughlin, Nevada and Atlantic City, New Jersey.  This is particularly important considering the fact that Nevada and New Jersey are likely to be the first states to legalize local online casinos; this puts the new partnership in the position to be at the top of usa online casinos.

Chairman and owner of Landry’s Tilman J. Fertitta said that after nine months of searching, he his happy that he found Chiligaming.  He commented that Dreyfus’s extensive European experience will be an asset to the project.  Upon launching, the new site will be a free play casino until all the stages of legalization, regulation, and licensing are completed.
