Players Continue to Register for Online Game Play in New Jersey

Nevada may have seen less than stellar numbers when it comes to online poker game play, but players in New Jersey are not shy about online gambling. The state has seen signups continue since the trial launch on the 21st of November and now over 50,000 accounts exist in the state.

Since this past Friday, over 14,000 accounts have been created by online gamblers and the state is hoping that players continue to log on and gamble. Since the 25th of November, six casinos in the state of New Jersey have offered online gambling options. The following casinos are live with online options:

Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa

Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort

Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino

Tropicana Casino and Resort

Bally’s Atlantic City

Caesars Atlantic City

Now the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City should be going live soon and possibly this week, if the problems the company has experienced are repaired. This week marks the second full week that the state will offer online gambling and more data should be available over the coming weeks with bets placed, accounts and more.

The state even saw 5,000 new accounts created on Thanksgiving Day. Gamblers either had time to log on and check out the online casinos or turkey day led to major boredom and players wanted to place a few bets. Either way the numbers were good and the state’s gambling division is expected to release the initial figure reports starting in January.

The expansion in New Jersey makes the state the third in the US to offer online gambling options as well as the first time the state has expanded in such a capacity. The state first began to offer gambling in 1978 and has since become one of the most popular gambling destinations in the US.
