Politicians in a lot of states have been talking about the idea of authorizing online gambling in their fields. Senator Raymond Lesniak has appealed a Bill in New Jersey that would authorize online poker and other casino games too.
Lesniak is acting fast and ahead of the federal government so as to make sure that New Jersey gaming operators have their choice to choose customers from the state. One of the requirements in the Bill is that Internet companies are required to be held in Atlantic County.
The online casino business would be set up comparable to the one in Atlantic City. The age limits and regulations of the games would be arranged after the AC casino business. The news of the proposed Bill has been accepted by online gambling advocates.
"We're glad that New Jersey has taken this matter into their own hands," commented Interactive Media Entertainment and Gaming Association Chairman Joe Brennan, in a press release, "New Jersey is known as having the hardest gaming directors in the US, but as a top of gaming state with a long track record of doing things appropriately, Internet gambling is going to have a great home here and the chance to start regularizing the business."
