Regulated Online Gambling in New Jersey Starts Today
Today sees the start of regulated online gambling in the state of New Jersey for real, following the successful completion of a five day trial. The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) has given six Atlantic Citycasinos the green light to start their operations as of today having been sufficiently satisfied that they have the necessary systems in place and working properly.
The six casinos are the Borgota Hotel and Spa, Caesars, the Tropicana Casino and Resort, the Trump Plaza Hotel, Ballys and the Trump Taj Mahal. Each of them has partnered with an online gaming provider and they have been live testing their new online casinos during the last 5 days. A seventh casino, the Golden Nugget, started its trial later than the others and still has to complete.
During the last five days each casino was limited to 500 players online at any one time. Demand was reportedly very high, with an estimated 10,000 customers signing up in total. A few minor glitches were experienced, largely with processing credit card transactions, but nothing major enough to prevent the full scale launch.
Including payment processors and technology companies, over 70 companies have now been authorized by the DGE to operate in relation to online gambling in the state. It remains to be seen just how successful these new online casinos will be, but the early signs certainly point to their being a lot of interest from players.
