NJ gives Golden Nugget Internet gambling permit

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — The Golden Nugget Atlantic City has received New Jersey’s second Internet gambling permit.

The state Division of Gaming enforcement says the approval is the second one after the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa got permission to start Internet gambling once it launches in New Jersey next month.

Online gambling will begin with an invitation-only trial period on Nov. 21. Assuming all goes well, full-fledged Internet gambling will start Nov. 26.

New Jersey is the third state in the nation to offer online gambling, along with Nevada and Delaware. It’s designed to give the struggling casinos new revenue, though some worry the in-person business will simply migrate to computers, leading to casino job losses.
