Fifth NJ Gaming License Awarded to Tropicana

New Jersey has set November 26th as the date when online gambling will go live in the state. It seems that just about every week new news is released about online gambling in the state. The Golden Nugget in Atlantic City has received a permit to offer online gambling in the state. The Nugget has partnered with Ballys which is good news for online casino players. Ballys is one of the premier online bingo operators in the UK and Europe. Betfair has launched a promotional campaign despite the fact that they do not yet have approval to operate in New Jersey.

The Golden Nugget is the second casino to receive a permit from the Division of Gaming Enforcement and will offer casino and poker games to players located within the borders of New Jersey. Executive Vice President and General Manger of The Golden Nugget, Tom Pohlman, said his company is committed to its customers and has a land based casino to back up their online gambling operations. Bally Technologies is currently working with the Golden Nugget to provide online poker and casino games. Bally will use the Amaya Ongame network to provide game software for US players.

Betfair has created a marketing campaign titled “Let’s Play NJ.” Betfair has not yet received a license but has moved ahead with the campaign anyway. The promotion prompts players to sign up with Betfair to receive updates on the status of Betfair in New Jersey. BetfairNJ is available on Twitter and BetfairNewJersey on Facebook. The promotional websites contain fine print which reads “The future availability of Internet gaming services on Betfair.com in New Jersey is contingent and conditioned upon the issuance of all necessary approvals … including, but not limited to, all approvals, licenses and permits required by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.”

Tropicana Casino and Resort has received a New Jersey gaming permit. This could be good news for online bingo players since the Tropicana has partnered with Gamesys Limited which operates several popular online bingo sites. Atlantic City has been struggling and casinos hope that online gaming will generate new revenues and make them profitable again. Earlier in the year the upscale Revel went bankrupt. Almost all of the twelve Atlantic City casinos will, offer online gambling. Some will limit games to poker while other plan to offer a variety of games including online bingo.
