Increasing Trend in New Jersey Online Gambling


According to analysts, New Jersey online gambling shows promising signs of growth. As it was detailed in the state’s Division of Gaming Enforcement, there is roughly a 28% increase in the field of online gaming which is a big step in comparison to last year’s figures.

In terms of New Jersey online gambling revenue, in the first four months of 2016 online gaming made $44.9 million profit, while in last year’s first quarter this number was only $35.1 million.

The report published on Global Gaming Business Magazine highlighted, this growth is expected to be increase further in the next few years. New Jersey online gambling has a bright future, as Roger Gros  expressed in the report. The main reason of it, as he said, i-gaming is becoming more popular due to two factors. First of all, people are understanding the mechanism and enjoying the benefits of online gaming. Secondly, all the matters in terms of payment processing and location have been fixed.

New Jersey state law has serious restrictions in terms of casino operators. The state allows only those sites – and their affiliates – to operate which have a licence. There are 5 authorized sites throughout the state including Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, Caesars Interactive Entertainment, Golden Nugget Atlantic City, Resorts Casino Hotel and Tropicana Casino and Resort. These regulations were signed into law back in 2013 by Gov. Chris Christie.

As the expert explained, one of the most successful casinos of New Jersey is Borgata Casino, followed by Caesar’s popular World Series of Poker. Introducing PokerStars was also one of the main reasons of the growth, which caused almost a 18 per cent online gaming increase in March.
