One such partnership just announced is that of Hard Rock International (HRI) who have announced a partnership the Gaming Innovation Group (GIG) for a New Jersey casino.
HRI in a formal announcement and after much speculation said that they has signed a deal with the Maltese based GIG who will provide the platform for their new online casino brand in the Garden State which will be launched sometime this year.
