New Jersey Publishes Online Gambling Regulations

State Division of Gaming Enforcement releases details of new laws to public.

Responsible gambling is the only legitimate form of online gambling, so those who are interested in accessing casino and poker games through New Jersey-licensed operators should be aware that the state has published its regulations.

These regulations are a draft based on the state's recent landmark decision to approve intra-state online gambling. They may be edited for a June 3 release when there will be a full public comment period.

Below are the main points contained in the regs:

  • All casino games approved in Atlantic City may also be offered over the internet, whether online or through a mobile device. Electronic and live versions of table games are permitted. Free-play versions of games will also be allowed.
  • Players must create an account through an Atlantic City casino, either over the Internet in person. They must provide personal information including Social Security number, and agree to conditions including a commitment to not logging in outside of NJ.
  • A number of deposit methods have been approved, including cash deposit at land-based Atlantic City casino, credit and debit cards and prepaid cards.
  • For the purposes of responsible gaming, players may set loss limits, daily time limits and self-exclusions. When a player reaches $2,500 in lifetime deposits the system will block them until they acknowledge this information.
  • A player that wishes to reset their password or change personal information must confirm their identify either in person or by answering at least two questions online.
  • Unlicensed NJ operators face big fines, and a state-funded advertising campaign will educate residents on licensed operators.
