Barely a month old, New Jersey's online gaming industry hit a milestone Monday when it was announced that over 100,000 online gaming accounts have now been created.
State Division of Gaming Enforcement spokesperson Lisa Spengler says that as of Sunday, the official tally for created accounts is 109,946.
DGE director David Rebuck said that since online gaming commenced with a five-day trial period on Nov. 21, he has seen a "steady and continual increase in site traffic," which he attributed to the "outreach of the casino operators."
"We are encouraged by their marketing efforts and are optimistic for the future of New Jersey's internet gaming industry," Rebuck said in a statement.
The current figure shows a jump of over 18,000 accounts in the past week alone as the last count as of Dec. 15 had the total at 91,531.
