NJ lawmakers pass iGaming bill, ball in Gov.'s court
NJ lawmakers have passed internet gambling bill A2578. The legislation has now moved to Governor Chris Christie's desk. Christie could decide to sign the bill today.
Christie originally conditionally vetoed the bill and asked for a number of changes, which were unanimously agreed upon, including raising the tax on casino winnings from 10 to 15%, a 10-year trial period for the legislation and more.
Under A2578, players present in New Jersey would be subject to
electronic age verification before they would be able to play a game
from one of Atlantic City's licensed casinos. It might be six months to a
year before the games are running.
