It’s hard to imagine Atlantic City casinos not being open 24/7. Yet when NJ casino gambling was first introduced in 1978, those who wanted to play in the hours between 4 a.m. and 10 a.m. were out of luck.
Until now, for Live Dealer games, a relatively new addition to the NJ online casino gambling scene, the hours when you could play have been even more limited. Golden Nugget Online Casino now offers Live Dealer games 24/7.
Are you a night owl who sometimes gets the urge to play Live Dealer blackjack at 5 a.m.? Or are you an early riser who couldn’t imagine a more fun way to spend your mornings than to be comfortably seated by your computer, smartphone, or tablet, without a care in the world, playing Live Dealer hold’em or roulette?
No problem because Golden Nugget has just extended the hours when you can play Live Dealer casino games so they’re the same as for every other game this forward-thinking casino offers. Most Golden Nugget Live Dealer tables are now open 24/7!
Golden Nugget Live Dealer games history
That was back in August, 2016. However, even though all of the casino’s other online games were open round the clock, the only times the Live Dealer tables were open were between 5 p.m. and 1 a.m.
Eventually Golden Nugget extended the hours for the Live Dealer games. The opening times were pushed forward to 3 p.m. and then to 12 noon, and the Live Dealer tables remained open until 3 or 4 a.m.
Recently Golden Nugget even added Casino Floor Roulette to the mix, and that exciting alternative to the casino’s other online roulette games has been running 24/7 from the get-go.
But otherwise, neither Golden Nugget nor any of the other NJ gambling websites that offer Live Dealer games (and only a handful of them do) kept those games open continuously. This had to be disappointing for the many players who love the unique experience that Live Dealer games has to offer.
But the good news is that Golden Nugget has responded. You can now play the Live Dealer game of your choice whenever you want!
What makes Live Dealer games so popular?
Despite the advanced live streaming technology that makes Live Dealer play possible, it is not as new as many people think. Overseas online casinos (not open to New Jersey players) have been offering these games, which are extremely popular there, for well over a decade. But even though other online casino games have been an option for NJ players since November, 2013, it was not until nearly three years later that Golden Nugget unveiled the first Live Dealer games.
In order to bring you these games, Golden Nugget Atlantic City partnered with Ezugi NJ. The Live Dealer games (except for Casino Floor Roulette) are broadcast from a studio on the ground floor of the Atlantic City property. Although the area is not part of the casino floor per se, it looks like it is because the tables and betting layouts are the same. And, most importantly, behind every table there’s a gorgeous dealer whom you not only get to feast your eyes on, but also interact with every time you play.
But you don’t have to go to Atlantic City to enjoy these games. The Live Dealer experience is unique because it allows you to play your favorite casino table games with other players and a real dealer in real time and even carry on a conversation with them without having to travel anywhere. Instead, you get the added convenience of being able to play on your desktop, smartphone, or tablet from the comfort of your own home or wherever in New Jersey you happen to be.
So it certainly makes sense that Golden Nugget, by popular demand, now offers round the clock action on virtually all Live Dealer games.
Live Dealer games reflect Golden Nugget’s commitment to give you the best online gaming experience possible
Thomas Winter, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Online Gaming at Golden Nugget, had this to say about the casino’s decision to offer Live Dealer games 24/7:
“We continue to demonstrate the never-ending commitment of GoldenNuggetCasino.com to providing New Jersey online casino players with the best online gaming experience. Our patrons asked and we delivered by opening our Live Dealer studio around the clock.”

Regardless of the reason, players have made roulette one of the most popular games at any online casino. But not all online roulette games were created equal.
The truth is the European version of the game is more player-friendly than its American counterpart.
European roulette wheels use a single zero, but American wheels have a double zero as well. It may seem insignificant at first glance, but this has a major impact on your chances of winning.
The fact is there’s an almost 3.5% Return to Player Rate difference between American and European roulette.
Borgata Casino hardly boasts the largest selection of roulette games available online in the Garden State. But it has the basics covered.
In fact, Borgata offers players the chance to play three different roulette titles. These are:
- American Roulette Pro (American 94.74% RTP)
- European Roulette Pro (European 97.29% RTP)
- Live Dealer Roulette (American 94.76% RTP)
Finding online roulette games at Borgata Casino
Borgata Casino makes finding its selection of roulette titles as easy as a few mouse clicks.
There’s a group of links underneath the Borgata Casino banner at the top of the page. Click on the link labeled ‘Table Games‘ and you’ll see a list of all Borgata’s casino games in title tile format.
From blackjack to video poker and everything in between, Borgata Casino’s entire table game offering is here, including its three roulette titles.
There’s also a search box on the right-hand side of the page where you can type in the word ‘roulette‘ and links to all three games will appear.
The title tiles and search box links provide all kinds of information about the games. You can also read a little about all three right here:
American Roulette Pro
This is standard American roulette with a double zero slot and an RTP of 94.74% that you should probably avoid.
American Roulette Pro does offer players quality and color Scheme setting options. Plus, there’s a statistics window that displays the last 200 previous results for players.
Additional single-click functionality includes the ability to clear all bets, redo bets, double bets, rebet and spin, and save up to eight betting layouts.
European Roulette Pro
This is standard European roulette with just a single zero and a player-friendly 97.29% RTP.
Just like American Roulette Pro players can adjust quality and color Scheme settings. The same statistics window displaying the last 200 results is there. Plus, the same single-click functionality is available.
Live Dealer Roulette
This is classic American Live Dealer Roulette from a studio in Atlantic City. That means a regrettable RTP of 94.74%.
If you have played live dealer roulette on Golden Nugget Online Casino in the past this will look familiar. The reason is Borgata live dealer games are powered by the same Ezugi software and originate from the same studio at Golden Nugget Atlantic City.
