Nearly 40 Applications Received for Online NJ Casinos

August 8, 2013

New Jersey's decision to allow online gambling draws scores of casino operators.

With the announcement that the state of New Jersey will be allowing online gambling, it was only a matter of time until the influx of applications came rolling in. This November will be he month that newly opened online casinos and other online gambling platforms will be legally operating their thrilling offerings and until now, many of these potential brands have opted in for consideration.

A total of 37 of the most well-known online gambling companies have sent in their applications to the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (NJDGE). Upon receiving such a range of applications the NJDGE stated, “We see this as the first round of filings and we expect that more applications will be filed as the start of Internet gaming moves closer. The July 29 deadline does not preclude someone from filing for a license in the future. All proposals will be considered as they are received.”

The names of those that have applied will be released upon approving their applications but you should expect big names like William Hill, bet365, Vegas Partners Lounge and other top-rated operators to be in the mix.

The applications have a catch and according to New Jersey’s gambling regulations, those that want to operate online in NJ, need to have land-based casinos in the state as well. There have been many of the big companies that have been seeking to buy or open a new brick and mortar casino in New Jersey but some of the online top-dogs could sign partnership agreements with the 12 casino resorts already in operation in the Garden State.
