Another New Online Casino For New Jersey
Added: March 9, 2015
This just in. Another new online casino was just given the final Okay to begin operations in New Jersey. If you have been following along with the goings on in the online casino industry you already know that the state of New Jersey has been at the forefont of online casinos and online gambling in the United States.
Here is what this is all about. From the city of Altantic City, an existing land based casino with the name Atlantic City’s Resort Casino Hotel just received the approval they had been seeking for quite some time. The last hurdle along the way was only just recently cleared and the Division of Gaming Enforcement signaled that it’s a go. The way this works is that Resorts Casino Hotel will begin with what is referred to as the Beta version of the online casino site.
This beta testing will take place over five days and will allow selected participants to win and lose real money games. During this real money proving period, both Resorts Casino and Division of Gaming Enforcement officials will be closely watching to make sure everything is working as it is supposed to be. At the end of the five day beta final proving test, Resorts Casino will have full authority to conduct online casino operations.
Interestingly, with this latest approval by the Division of Gaming Enforcement, New Jersey can now proudly boast that six of of its eight land based casinos also have an associated online casino site. Recall that the law authorizing online gambling operations in New Jersey was set up so that online casinos had to have some sort of association with a land based casino.
There’s more. Resorts Casino had set up a partnership with PokerStars as far back as 2013. Although New Jersey has not yet authorized PokerStars to operate within the state, that final approval is expected to be forthcoming in the next few months. As of the last update, Resorts Casino is pushing for PokerStars new owner, Amaya Gaming to be approved by the state.
Once that goes through, Resorts Casino will certainly be a force to reckon with. Think about it; combine some of the best online gambling experiences available with all that PokerStars has to offer and its almost like an unbeatable combination.
Kudos to New Jersey for continuing to push the envelope for online gambling in the United States.
