Offshore online gambling providers will be shut down in New Jersey with Canada’s help.
US.- New Jersey will tighten its measures against online gaming services, based on the legislation implemented this year. The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) has signed an agreement with Canadian Kahnawake Gaming Commission (KGC) to set a joint venture against illegal offshore gaming platforms.
“This agreement is an important step in ensuring the integrity of internet gaming operations in New Jersey and helps ensure that online gaming patrons can play on fair, regulated sites,” commented David Rebuck, Director of DGE. The international venture may also take legal actions against the companies that currently operate without a formal license.
New Jersey gaming authorities have proven recently that several providers illegally offer their platforms for US players through a server located on the Mohawk Territory of Kahnawake in Canada. Both Commissions will focus on determine which companies extended their services to US and will implement joint measures to limit the illegal possibilities.
