New Jersey makes Internet gambling deal with Nevada, Delaware

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has announced that he has reached an agreement with Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval and Delaware Governor John Carney to allow Internet gamblers in New Jersey to play online against players in those two states.

“New Jersey has been a pioneer in the development of authorized, regulated online gaming, which has been a budding success since its launch in late 2013,” Governor Christie said. “Pooling players with Nevada and Delaware will enhance annual revenue growth, attract new consumers, and create opportunities for players and Internet gaming operators”.

It’s hoped that populous New Jersey’s entry into this multistate agreement will increase jackpots and opportunities for play and will stimulate operators to expand Internet gaming by locating their gaming servers in the State of New Jersey.

Now, operators will be able to allow their customers to participate in games such as poker, tournaments, and progressive slot games with players in other states where they are licensed. Regulators in each of the three states will still have to approve an operator interested in offering games to persons in each venue and approve the game software to be used.
