The testing has been done, and although all didn’t go as smoothly as it could have done, it was good enough for the Division of Gaming Enforcement in New Jersey to give online gambling in the state the green light. Six casinos have been given permission to allow all online casino games players in New Jersey to login, deposit and play meaning that three US states now offer online gaming with Delaware and Nevada being the other two. Those six casinos are the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa, the Trump Taj Mahal, the Tropicana Casino and Resort, Caesar’s Atlantic City, Bally’s Atlantic City and the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino.
David Rebuck DGE Director said that, "At this point in time, the casinos are trying to gear up for larger play in the state, I don't expect any widespread, significant problems." It is believed that around 10,000 players tried to login to the various casino websites during the test and that although there were problems with geolocation technology and depositing issues that there were no major concerns, at least not enough for the Division to extend the testing period.
The Golden Nugget was not given approval and residents will have to wait for their offering, and no particular reason has been given for the delay. So there we have it, and after what seems like an eternity, online gaming is live in New Jersey. Slots and casino games players will however have to wait a little while longer for slots bonuses to be offered, however some sites are launching with smaller promotions. Remember that only residents of New Jersey can access these sites, and those from elsewhere...well, they have a wide selection of online casinos that accept players from the US.
