Highlights

  • New Jersey is the second state to enjoy Hacksaw games after West Virginia.
  • 10 Hacksaw games are available exclusively in DraftKings Casino.
  • More games will roll out in other NJ casinos over time.

Hacksaw Gaming, a popular online gaming software developer based in Malta, has been actively venturing into new markets lately. On November 28th, 2023, the game studio entered a content distribution deal with industry titan Betsafe Lithuania to break into the Baltic region.

Hacksaw Gaming broadened its horizons on December 1st, 2023 when it partnered with DraftKings after obtaining a license from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement. This is the second US market the brand is venturing into following its validation in West Virginia through BetRivers Casino in June 2022. On a related note, Hacksaw has already set its eager sights on the next desired regulated US market – Pennsylvania.

Commenting on the new partnership between the two brands, Hacksaw Gaming’s CEO, Marcus Codes, expressed the company’s incredible pride in its ever-increasing footprint in the US and globally.

What to Expect from Hacksaw Gaming in New Jersey 

Hacksaw Gaming is gripping the charts of the renowned industry leader DraftKings Casino with 10 rolled-out classics. These games have been well received in the casino lobby and are meant to be exclusively provided at the casino for the next two weeks. The roster of Hacksaw games currently available to NJ players includes:

  • Chaos Crew: This slot displays Hacksaw’s quirky and personable talent. Playable on a 5x5 grid with 15 paylines, Chaos Crew features gothic punk vibes with the potential to pay up to 10,000x the bet awarded in a brutally volatile math model. Its bonus features include wilds, free spins, and special bonus symbols, and they can be unlocked for bets between $0.20 and $100.
  • Om Nom: This oddly named title is the second installment in the developer’s Pocketz Series. It plays with a basic but pleasant formula on a 4x4 layout with 256 win ways. The bonus features are few but compelling. First up is the multiplier bonus, which launches randomly and multiplies winnings up to 100x. The second is free spins, which also retain the multiplier feature.
  • Hand of Anubis: This slot presents the Egyptian deity Anubis in a steely blue-eyed jackal-headed form and dark palette, an antithesis to the benevolent fashion of most similarly themed pokies. The deity demands bets of up to $100 and can reward up to 10,000x the stake. Its features include Underworld Bonus, Judgment Bonus, Soul Orbs, and feature buys.
  • Wanted Dead or a Wild: This dark slot calls on players to saddle up, load their revolvers, and get ready to round up outlaws on a 5x5 grid with 15 paylines. For wagers between $0.20 and $100, you can land wins of up to 12,500x per spin. The game has a rich offering of bonus features, including full reel wild multiplier symbols of up to 100x and three bonus games: The Great Train Robbery, Duel at Dawn, and Dead Man’s Hand.

Potential additions are expected soon, such as Stack ‘Em, King Carrot, Joker Bombs, and The Bowery Boys. Also, the games will be adopted in more New Jersey online casinos as Hacksaw continues to cement its place in the NJ market.

Another Deal to Strengthen DraftKings as an NJ Online Casino Titan 

DraftKings Casino dominates the charts as the leading online gambling destination in New Jersey and is grouped under the Resorts Atlantic City license. The company’s third-quarter earnings report highlighted the brand’s achievement of #1 combined iGaming and online sports betting gross gaming revenue share in the country.

As New Jersey celebrates 10 years of legal gambling, the niche has raked in over $7 billion in revenue. Of that, the Resorts Digital Gaming LLC has supplied $1.5 billion, falling behind Golden Nugget and Borgata only. This new partnership between DraftKings and Hacksaw Gaming will likely push the Resorts group higher up the hierarchy.
