Starting at 6 p.m. Eastern Time today, Borgata plans to commence a "soft play" period on its online gaming sites. Soft play on the sites will be limited to invited customers and certain qualified Borgata team members. Boyd Gaming's online gaming partner, bwin.party digital entertainment plc, will also begin testing of its online gaming sites at this time.

During this period, Borgata and bwin.party will be testing various features of the online gaming sites, including geo-location, customer identity verification, payment processing, and general game performance. Representatives of the DGE will closely monitor this process during the soft play period.

"The soft play period is an invaluable opportunity for us to test, review, practice and make enhancements to our technology and product offering," said Bob Boughner, Executive Vice President and Chief Business Development Officer for Boyd Gaming. "We intend to be very methodical, careful and thorough throughout this process. Our objective is to make sure that Borgata's real-money online gaming product meets the requirements of New Jersey regulators and the expectations of our customers."

Under New Jersey law, the DGE may authorize Internet gaming permit holders to offer real-money online gaming to the general public in New Jersey as early as Tuesday, November 26, assuming all testing and soft play is completed to the satisfaction of the DGE.
