iGaming Business – Online gaming operator Ultimate Gaming has confirmed it is to exit the regulated New Jersey internet gambling market after accusing its partner the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort of several contract breaches.

Ultimate Gaming has been in partnership with the Trump Taj Mahal since the full launch of online gaming in the US state late last year.

However, the pair have struggled to make a major impact on the market after taking just $4.9 million (€3.8 million) from online customers so far this year, compared to $30 million won by market leader PartyPoker in partnership with Borgata.

There is uncertainty over the future of the Trump Taj Mahal as its parent company, Trump Entertainment Resorts, threatened that the facility could close before the end of the year.

Last week, Trump Entertainment Resorts shut down Trump Plaza in New Jersey and said the Taj Mahal could follow on November 13 unless it can resolve major concessions from its union.
