888 Casino Now Legal in New JerseyPublished November 18, 2014 by Mike P
888 Casino has just received a license to provide regulated online gaming services to the residents of New Jersey.
Much has changed in the US gaming industry over the past 12 months. Most notably, US residents living in Delaware, Nevada, and New Jersey can now access online gambling sites that possess the correct licensing. And with those new markets now up and running, there are many gambling operators trying to enter them. 888 Casino is the latest entrant, with the site now officially licensed with the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.
Access Only for NJ Residents
The coverage of the 888 Casino license means that residents of New Jersey are now legally permitted to place real money wagers and claim winnings from the games they play. This is major news because only a limited selection of online casino operators has been awarded online gaming licenses. US residents living outside of New Jersey will find that they are blocked from accessing 888 Casino.
To ensure that only legally permitted US residents can access 888 Casino, a number of security measures have been implemented in keeping with licensing requirements. Legally, all US players who attempt to register with 888 Casino will be asked to submit their social security number. This will allow for the casino to verify age and identity, along with state of residence. The latest advanced encryption methods are in place to make sure that all financial transactions will be processed securely.
Responsible Gambling Support
One potential issue for emerging US online gambling markets is that residents have minimal prior experience with the activity. Therefore, some users might be unaware of the potential risks of online gambling. Above all else, users need to understand the importance of setting strict budgets and sticking to them rigidly. To offer support, 888 Casino allows for New Jersey players to set their own deposit limits. Furthermore, 888 Casino can enforce exclusion periods as requested by concerned players.
