Internet gambling in NJ now a reality, SBR iGaming News
Internet betting is now a reality in Atlantic City, NJ. Six casinos have been given the green light to offer their online games to those present in NJ. SBR recaps last week's report and adds more detail in this week's iGaming News show. SBR also covers recent sportsbook industry dispute updates and news in today's show.
The Garden State's five day trial period has come to an end. The six casinos who have been approved so offer to offer their online games statewide consist of the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa, the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino, Bally's Atlantic City, Caesaras Atlantic City, The Tropicana Casino and Resort, and the Trump Taj Mahal Casino resort.
Included in the trial period was extensive stress testing to make sure players outside of NJ's borders would not be able to access the games. Players must register with each casino to set-up online accounts, be of age to gamble, and be in the state to partake in casino and poker gambling.
Sports betting is not offered in the online gambling software as well as anywhere in the state of New Jersey as existing federal law PASPA continues to be a thorn in the side of the state. New Jersey is attempting to be heard by the US Supreme Court as last reported by SBR. NJ failed in its efforts in Trenton federal court as well as the Appellate court to have the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act overturned or amended.
