Read to learn more about the technical brilliance that provides you with your favorite games.


What are Online Casino Game Providers?

Game providers are the software companies that design and then provide online casino games for the online casinos. 

Any game you play has software behind it that must be programmed. Everything from the text to the graphics to the sound is a part of the game’s software.

Did you know?

– There is a difference between platform providers and software developers. Software developers are the game makers, and platform providers make the player interface (online casino websites).


Game providers are responsible, legally scrutinized companies, and that’s for a good reason. They are not permitted to sell their games if they’re not licensed. And no legal online casino would buy a game from an unlicensed game provider.

Because the game providers are licensed, you know that your game is trustworthy.

Fairness of games

New Jersey’s legal online casinos guarantee players a seat at a legit game by only using licensed providers. 

Several organizations test the games produced by the game providers. If the software designer is based overseas, it must pass through an international regulating body. These organizations include:

  • Gaming Laboratories International (GLI)
  • eCOGRA
  • Technical Systems Testing (TST)
  • Gaming Associates
  • Malta Gaming Authority

Additionally, New Jersey’s Division of Gaming Enforcement has ultimate authority over whether a game is deemed fair and its advertised RTP is accurate.

Regulation of game providers means that the games are reliable and completely random in their outcomes. Routine testing also allows the accurate return to player (RTP) percentage to be ascertained. 

Did you know?

  • Some slots, such as Blood Suckers, have RTPs as high as 99%!
  • You might have already played these “online” games in the casino! Nearly all land-based slots machines in Atlantic City also use the software. 

The Biggest Names in the Industry

What makes a game provider great?

  • A great game provider has both consistency and innovation
  • Providers certainly have their individual assets, and they play to their own strengths. So while some focus on slots with a classic, physical casino feel, others bring in the latest technology for their graphics.
  • Great providers also point their technology toward a better and better user experience (UX). That means faster loading, fewer glitches, and more ability for you to focus on games.
  • With the market being as competitive as it is today, providers know that smart gamblers won’t play games that don’t put out. So that means that we can continue to see higher RTPs. Games with low RTPs get panned in reviews. And no one knows this better than the providers.

The innovative

BTG stands for Big Time Gaming, which is what they’re about.

In particular, BGT has made some noise with their Megaways jackpots. These have over 117,000 pay lines and enormous jackpots available. 

Monopoly Megaways has been a big hit in New Jersey for BGT. That’s been a hit at these casinos great selection of their games at Golden Nugget. Their BGT games include:

The ones with the most games provided

Again, NetEnt is one of the significant providers of games in New Jersey. Every online casino carries its hit games in the state. I mean, who can live without Starburst?

If you’ve played these games, you know NetEnt already:

You’ll find NetEnt at every legal online casino in New Jersey. 

Another primary provider, IGT, doesn’t play around when producing games. They have tons out now.

These are some of their most-loved games in NJ online casinos:

Mobile-oriented game providers

As more and more people play online casino games on their mobile devices, there’s a more significant push to get those games on their phones. 

However, if you play on both your computer and your mobile device, you’ll notice fewer games available through mobile apps.

888 is one of the leaders in the move toward mobile, and if you know their history, it’s no surprise why. They’ve been in the online casino business from the beginning – both as an operator and game designer – so they’re up to date with mobile technology.

IGT and NetEnt are also very active in making sure as many of their games as possible are also available on mobile devices.
