New Jersey legalizes online gambling

Online casino gambling is now legal in three states in the USA.

New Jersey governor Chris Christie signed both online gambling and online casinos into law this week on 26 February.

The move came after pioneering state Delaware legalized online casinos and just a week or so after gambling Mecca state Nevada followed suit.

The move also comes less than two weeks after Revel Casino, the most expensive casino in the history of the state’s gambling hot spot Atlantic City, declared bankruptcy. Experts have commented that legalizing online betting may be a way for the Garden State to bring in much-needed funds which otherwise may not be available.

Christie also stated that the majority of online gambling systems can be live and serving players by this time next year.
