New Jersey Legalizes Internet Gambling

TRENTON, N.J., (UPI) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed legislation Tuesday allowing state gambling houses to offer betting on online slot machines and table games.

The New Jersey Assembly and Senate overwhelmingly approved Internet gaming legislation Tuesday, and Christie immediately sign it into law, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Wednesday.

The Republican governor initially vetoed the legislation on Feb. 7, seeking revisions to ensure proper regulation. All the changes were incorporated into the final bill, the newspaper noted.

“This is the ultimate form of convenience gambling. Atlantic City will pick up some of what’s being done illegally now. The resort will be able to renew some relationships (with customers) who have drifted away,” said Assemblyman John Burzichelli, who sponsored the legislation in the Assembly.

New Jersey law specifies Atlantic City has exclusivity on gambling, which is why servers for online gaming will be housed at the 12 casinos in the city, Burzichelli added.
