Editor’s note: TEN has yet to launch its online casino. View currently available legal NJ online casinos here.
TEN is the name of the still shuttered Atlantic City Boardwalk resort and casino originally branded Revel.
In 2007, Revel Entertainment revealed plans to build a $2 billion casino hotel with two-700-foot towers on the property across from the Showboat Casino Hotel and open it up in 2010.
Construction ran into all sorts of issues and the opening date was pushed back several times. On April 2, 2012, Revel opened. Operators filed for bankruptcy within a year.
The hotel and casino was ultimately shut down in September 2014. In 2015, Florida developer Glenn Straub bought it out of bankruptcy court for $82 million. However, Straub has run into numerous issues obtaining the state and local permits to reopen. The property has been re-branded as TEN. Relaunch dates have been pushed back several times.
Straub claims to have leased out gaming operations to Connecticut developer Robert Landino, and while Landino seeks casino licensing approval, Straub has announced plans to reopen the hotel side of the property on June 15, 2017.
TEN already operates a social casino site, so all indications are TEN will also seek an online gaming license and look to operate a New Jersey real-money online casino site at some point.
Who will TEN partner with?
In terms of the licensing side of operating an online casino site, TEN does not need to seek a partner at all. Online gambling legislation in New Jersey allows existing land-based casinos to apply for online gaming licenses. In fact, Atlantic City casinos are the only ones that can.
Assuming TEN is eventually granted a land-based casino license in the state, it should be easy enough to extend that to online operations.
However, obtaining that land-based casino license has proved difficult for TEN owner Glenn Straub thus far. Straub has been unable to obtain a casino license and now claims to have leased out gaming operations to Connecticut developer Robert Landino. The property is reportedly still seeking casino licensing approval.
The games available at a TEN online casino
Any TEN branded New Jersey online casino is expected feature the same games available on most New Jersey online casinos. This includes online slots, including progressive jackpot slots.
Players can also expect to find electronic variations of a number of casino games, including:
TEN may want to operate its own online poker client as well. Plus, players can expect the site to run a number of video poker games, including classics like:
- Jacks or Better
- Bonus Poker
- Double Double Bonus Poker
- Deuces Wild
The software TEN will use
TEN has yet to commit to any one online casino and poker software provider.
However, the organization has launched a social casino website, Play.TenACNJ.com powered by software provided GAN. GAN provides the platform for Betfair’s New Jersey online casino and also holds a transactional waiver from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement allowing it to offer real-money online gambling in conjunction with a licensed New Jersey casino. TEN could eventually be that licensed casino.
Will TEN offer mobile gaming apps?
The TEN New Jersey online casino will likely offer its own TEN mobile gaming app. The app is sure to be made available for iOS and Android smartphone and tablet users.
Mobile gaming apps often offer a smaller slate of games than the desktop clients. However, TEN mobile gaming app users should have access to a number of slots and table games. In fact, much like others in the New Jersey mobile online gaming market, TEN should provide regular updates and the addition of new games.
TEN online casino promo code
TEN NJ online casino will likely offer new players a no-deposit bonus and first-time depositors some kind of additional matching deposit bonus.
The offer has not yet been released, but players should be able to use a specific online promo code to take advantage of whatever bonus is offered when they sign up for an account on the site.
The industry standard has become a 100 percent first-deposit bonus of up to at least $100.
The TEN online casino welcome bonus
New Jersey online casino sites offer bonuses to try to attract new clientele. They also run regular promotions to try to retain them. These range from no-deposit bonuses to first-deposit bonuses, player loss returns and all kinds of additional deposit bonuses and volume play rewards.
Most of the bonuses come with wagering requirements. Players can expect the TEN New Jersey online casino site to offer similar bonuses and promotions.
Most online casinos on in New Jersey also offer loyalty programs. These programs reward regular play and without a doubt, the TEN online casino will offer a free loyalty program to players on the site.
TEN may connect their online program to the land-based rewards program at TEN. That would allow players to take advantage of cross promotional opportunities online and off.
