This month saw the soft launch of online gambling in New Jersey. There is still a lot of heat and news circling around the web about the new legal online gambling in New Jersey. Of course this online gambling is only legal on a state level and has yet to be supported by the federal government.
The last week was a bit of a scare for online gamblers living on border towns within New Jersey. These residents might not be able to access legal online gambling due to how close they reside to New York State. Geolocation firms are hard at work solving this solution for players located in these area’s.
The reasoning for the service gap for online gambling in these border towns is become internet providers are bound by certain borders. If you go past a certain point there is a chance that players in either New York, Delaware or Pennsylvania to gamble legally as well. Until the Geolocation firms figure everything out players in these border towns won’t be able to gamble like they want to.
Players who are located within the no play zone will of course be able to move outside of these borders and go to any sort of cafe that provides players with a wifi connection. As time goes on everything will be figured out for these players so that they may fully access online gambling in the state of New Jersey.
Betfair and Skrill announced today that they have received a transaction waiver from the Division of Gaming Enforcement from New Jersey. This will allow for both these online gambling firms to offer their services in the State.
This waiver gives Betfair and Skill both the opportunity to participate in the beginning of legal online betting launch that is to take place on November 26th. This is when all New Jersey Citizens will be able to gamble at once.
The Managing Director of Gaming for Betfair Paul La Fontaine commented on this development saying, “We are happy to be one of the first to bring legal online casino games to New Jersey State.” Neil Steinhardt, the Skrill USA CEO also commented on the development saying, “We are one of the first payment services to be legalized in the New Jersey US Gambling Market and we look forward to continuing to venture into the US Gambling Market as more states begin to make online gambling legal.”
Age Verification Firm Aristotle also announced that they gained a waiver to start up their betting operations in New Jersey. This will allow for the New Jersey Gambling market to be more safe and secure, allowing for the younger generation not to be given access to online gambling.
