ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey says it remains on track to start offering Internet gambling by the end of November, although a final launch date has not yet been determined.
The state Division of Gaming Enforcement says it is on track to meet a state deadline of Nov. 26.
The division says casinos submitted additional information it requested by last Friday’s deadline so that regulators can evaluate their applications to begin online betting. Nine of the city’s 12 casinos have acknowledged lining up partners for Internet gambling, and a tenth is widely rumored to have selected a partner as well.
Online gambling is designed to give the struggling casinos new revenue, though some worry some of the in-person business will simply migrate to computers, leading to casino job losses.
