Online Gambling Launch in New Jersey is Official
Some of the best news of the year have come to the ears of online gamblers in New Jersey as it was announced that the state will be able to deliver the long promised online gambling on the set date. November 26th, 2013 will be a day to remember in the United States, as New Jersey will become the third state of the kind to offer legal online gambling.
The "soft play" period for invited guests begins on November 21st and it will last for five days in which the Gaming Enforcement Division will ensure that everything is running correctly and fairly. If everything goes well during this period, the online casino doors will open to all residents of the state of New Jersey on November 26th.
Atlantic City casinos have been struggling over revenue for the past years, they have suffered a 40% decrease in revenue in the past 7 years, dropping from $5.2 billion in 2006 to $3 billion in 2012, and a further drop predicted for 2013. Legalized online gambling was developed as a possible solution for the land casinos in the state so that they will draw revenue and offer employment.
We hope players in New Jersey enjoy this advancement, and that this step will mark the way for other American states seeking regulation of the industry.
