Online gaming to grow in New Jersey
Even though a double digit increase is expected, it won’t be as good as last year’s.
US.- Research firm Eilers & Krejcik Gaming released a report where they establish that the online gaming industry in New Jersey will grow 17 percent in 2017. Last year, online casinos experienced a 32 percent growth over 2015.
To be able to run an online gaming site in the state, the operator needs a partnership with a licensee, and there are currently five in the state: Golden Nugget, Caesars, Resorts, Borgata and Tropicana. New Jersey currently offers 20 different gaming websites. Golden Nugget holds the biggest platform in the state under its partnership with Betfair. Whilst the industry was legalised back in 2013, year after year New jersey has been experiencing good results in its online gambling sector.
Back in December, 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.
