The roll-out remains subject to regulatory approval, and will see GNOG pay The Greenbrier, which is owned by West Virginia Governor Jim Justice, a percentage of online net gaming revenue, subject minimum royalty payments.
“The partnership with The Greenbrier is an important milestone for the Golden Nugget online gaming expansion plans,” GNOG owner and chief executive Tilman J. Fertitta said. “We look forward to providing West Virginian players with our best-in-class product.”
Under state regulations, land-based licensees can issue up to three skins for online sports betting, and three more for online casino. GNOG becomes The Greenbrier’s third sports betting partner, after FanDuel and BetMGM, and its second online casino skin after BetMGM.
The only other operator active in the casino vertical in West Virginia is DraftKings, which was the first to launch its offering in July this year, under Penn National’s Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races’ master license.
“The Greenbrier is excited about this new partnership and adding to the incredible casino offerings already in place for our guests, members and friends throughout West Virginia,” The Greenbrier’s president Dr Jill Justice commented. “Golden Nugget has proven itself as a market leader in the industry, and we’re confident it will deliver a product that matches the lofty standard that defines America’s Resort.”
