New Jersey Gambling Bill Could Allow Out-of-State Bets

Legislation, 2012-05-12, by Ozone

A state Assembly panel in New Jersey approved an amendment to a piece of online gambling legislation that would permit the state to accept bets from residents outside its borders. The state could accept bets from residents of other states as long as the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement determines that doing so wouldn't violate federal law.

When legal online gaming comes to New Jersey, computer servers that handle the bets will be housed in Atlantic City in order to comply with a state constitutional requirement.

Several key details of the bill are still being worked out. But if New Jersey passes a bill allowing out-of-state participants in their games and their Division of Gaming Enforcement concludes that does not violate federal law, it could create a doorway for interstate online poker to return to the U.S.
