ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Trump Plaza is partnering with British company Betfair to offer Internet gambling once it begins in New Jersey next month.
Betfair is one of Britain’s largest online betting companies, and it owns TVG, the platform provider for 4NJBets. That’s the only horse racing account-wagering platform available to New Jersey residents.
Betfair’s alignment with Trump Plaza had been rumored for months. The company confirmed the alliance Wednesday morning.
The state is preparing for the launch of online gambling in New Jersey, which will begin Nov. 26 after a five-day invitation-only test period to make sure all the systems work properly.
New Jersey has already awarded Internet gambling permits to five casinos, clearing them to begin offering online gambling once it starts.
