The Division of Gaming Enforcement today announced its proposed regulations for Internet wagering, which will be published in the New Jersey Register on June 3. A 60-day public comment period will end Aug. 2, with final adoption to be made after the comments are reviewed.
In February, Gov. Chris Christie signed a bill legalizing online gaming, calling it a pivotal moment for the state’s long-suffering casino industry.
David Rebuck, director of the Division of Gaming Enforcement, will announce the date on which New Jersey casinos can begin accepting Internet wagers at least 45 days prior to commencement, which is required by state law. Those who make Internet wagers do not need to live in New Jersey, but must be in the state to participate through a permitted Atlantic City casino.
The Division has posted a draft of the proposed regulations on Internet wagering at http://www.nj.gov/oag/ge/proposed_rules.htm.
