NJ sets deadline for online gambling partners

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - June 14, 2013

The state Gaming Enforcement Division has told the casinos they have until June 30 to arrange Internet gambling deals.

The short time frame is intended to give state regulators time to examine the qualifications and backgrounds of the companies who want to partner with the casinos, particularly since several foreign companies are considered likely to join with Atlantic City casinos.

New Jersey is one of three states in the nation to legalize Internet gambling, along with Delaware and Nevada, which has already started taking bets online.
