Feb 3, 2014 7:10 PM

A recent poll revealed only 3 percent of New Jersey residents have participated in that state’s Internet gambling thus far but a much larger number planned to take part this year.

The poll, conducted by the Lloyd D. Levenson Institute of Gaming, Hospitality and Tourism at the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey surveyed 600 residents.

“Interest in online gambling is growing and should continue to grow once marketing efforts and promotions take off,” said Institute director Israel Posner.

As an aside, the poll found 55 percent of residents support legalized sports betting in the state.
