New Jersey's regulated online gambling enterprise is showing more and more promise as the number of users continues to rise.
The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement has recently released the latest numbers on online gambling accounts created since New Jersey legalized online gambling on November 26, 2013: a little more than 126,000! In fact, in the space of this week and last week, the numbers jumped from about 16,000 to 126,000, making the future of New Jersey's online gambling enterprise look very promising.
New Jersey's Online Casinos
New Jersey was the third state to regulate online gambling, following Nevada and Delaware. Seven Atlantic City-based casinos jumped on board: Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort, Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino, Tropicana Casino and Resort, Caesars Atlantic City, Bally's Atlantic City and The Golden Nugget. These casinos were approved by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement and were given full permits to offer online gambling within state boundaries.
According to Poker Scout, partypoker owns the majority of the market share, while Caesars Interactive Entertainment's World Series of Poker-branded site, powered by 888 Holdings, comes in second, All American Poker Network is in third place and Ultimate Poker makes up the rest of the market.
New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement Director David Rebuck commented, "We are encouraged by their marketing efforts and are optimistic for the future of New Jersey's Internet gaming industry."
