New Jersey authorised on Monday a new online gaming bill, as well as a new casino license process.

US.- This week, the New Jersey Assembly Tourism, Gaming and Arts Committee passed a new online gaming bill to allow the delivery of the service in two racetracks, Monmouth Park and Meadowlands. The Assembly also proposed a new casino license process to limit the extension of the State’s permission of operation.

“This bill would permit a running or harness horse racetrack in this State to enter into an agreement with a casino located in Atlantic City, or such a casino’s Internet gaming affiliate, that allows the racetrack’s premises to be available as a venue at which the holder of an Internet gaming account may place wagers at casinos using the Internet,” states the bill A4255.

The Assembly’s move would allow casino and iGaming sectors to converge and help ending the financial crisis Atlantic City is going through. The bill A4255 was introduced last October 20 by Republican Assemblyman Ronald S. Dancer and would launch an online version of a New Jersey gaming hub’s casino.
