ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (Legal Newsline) - New Jersey Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa and the Division of Gaming Enforcement announced Friday that the proposed regulations for internet wagering will be published June 3 in the New Jersey Register.
Following the publication, there will be a 60-day public comment period with final adoption following a review and response to all public comments. The division posted a draft of the proposed regulation on internet gaming on its website for New Jersey residents to get an early view.
Division Director David Rebuck said the state proved to be at the forefront of casino gaming by developing internet wagering regulations for all casino games. Rebuck will announce the date on which New Jersey casinos can start accepting internet wagers at least 45 days before commencement.
The proposed regulations include technical standards for safeguarding against underage and problem gamblers and for establishing player integrity, key operational controls and security measures to ensure patron access to the internet is within the boundaries of New Jersey, substantial civil penalties for companies that are not internet gaming permit holders who advertise and use their premises for internet gaming and the required filing of a gaming-related casino service industry enterprise license application for any entity that plans to provide software to casinos or to offer internet gaming on behalf of a licensed casino.
Since 2010, Gov. Chris Christie implemented multiple broad-based, comprehensive reforms to the gaming and tourism industries to reinvigorate the industries and create opportunities for economic growth in the state.
