New Jersey Considers Legalized Online Gambling

Well, looks like lawmakers in the US might really be coming to their senses, at least where online gambling is concerned. A newly proposed law would make it legal for New Jersey residents to play at online casinos run by the state's casinos in Atlantic City. Though residents are already allowed to place bets on horses online, this law would allow betting on games such as Poker, Blackjack, roulette, slots and Baccarat. The bill was introduced into the New Jersey senate by Senator Raymond Lesniak (D-Union), who also introduced a separate bill which calls for New Jersey residents to vote on a constitutional amendment that would allow state-regulated sports wagering in Atlantic City casinos, and to state residents via an intra-state Internet gambling system.

"We’re happy that New Jersey has taken the issue into their own hands," said Interactive Media Entertainment and Gaming Association chairman Joe Brennan Jr. "New Jersey is recognised as having the toughest gaming regulations in the US, but as a leading gaming state with a long track record of doing things the right way, internet gambling will have a great home here and can begin normalising the industry."
