Applications Received for New Jersey Online Gaming and Poker Market
The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement recently announced that 37 companies have submitted their applications for intrastate online gaming and poker licenses before the due date that was set by the state.
The authorities are now processing these applications in order to determine which of the companies are suitable to operate in the market and will, in due course, publish a full list on their website of those who are granted permission.
According to David Rebuck, the director of the Division of Gaming Enforcement, more applications are expected to be filed closer to the commencement of internet gaming and although the authorities will still be accepting these late applications, it cannot guarantee that they will be able to launch their products on time to meet the launch date that has been scheduled for November, 2013.
The twelve terrestrial casinos operating in Atlantic City are among the casinos applying for online gambling licenses. Online casino and poker software providers who partner with these casinos as well as online payment processors and several other companies have also made applications to authorities in the Garden State.
All twelve of the casinos that currently operate in Atlantic City have reportedly already signed deals with software providers with ten of them already having made these deals public. The remaining two casinos, Atlantic Club Casino and Revel Casino Hotel will be required to reveal the information at some stage.
