The Best Online Casino Coming Soon to New Jersey

Move over, Atlantic City — the best online casino is coming soon to a New Jersey home computer screen near you!

For many years, gambling in New Jersey meant a trip to Atlantic City. Thanks to recently passed regulatory guidelines, that is all going to change. A recent article on Philly.com provides an excellent summary of these new regulations, and includes commentary from the Director of New Jersey’s Division of Gaming Enforcement, David Rebuck.

Soon, New Jersey will join Nevada and Delaware in paving the way for citizens to enjoy gambling at the best online casino. The New Jersey regulations require verification that online users are adults who are physically located within the state. The regulations also outline a tax structure for the casino’s winnings, and provide some protections for consumers who are problem gamblers (e.g., daily deposit limits).

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – New Jersey moved forward Friday with its plans to offer Internet gambling, issuing regulations on how the new online bets are to be handled.

The rules offered by the state Division of Gaming Enforcement include techniques to verify that players are within New Jersey’s geographic boundaries, include a 15 percent tax on casinos’ online winnings and add cautions for people at risk of becoming compulsive gamblers.

The state still has not set a date when Atlantic City’s 12 casinos may begin offering Internet bets, but such gambling is expected to start before the end of the year.

“New Jersey has once again proven to be in the forefront of casino gaming with the development of Internet wagering regulations for all casino games,” said David Rebuck, the division’s director.

The rules also allow New Jersey to make agreements with other states or countries to offer Internet gambling as long as it is legal in both places. Nevada and Delaware also have legalized Internet gambling, and other states are expected to follow suit soon. Click this link to finish reading NJ issues regulations for Internet gambling.
