Wheels are Turning for New Jersey Online Gambling

November 12, 2013

Last week, gaming regulators in New Jersey announced the recipients of preliminary online gambling permits. Still set to open legal online gambling sites in the Garden State on November 26th (following a five-day trial phase), New Jersey is the third US state to legalize online gambling. State law affirms that only casinos with land-based operations in Atlantic City can operate online casinos.

To ensure a seamless online poker transition, the casinos, which are inexperienced with online poker operations, will be required to team up with an established online poker presence that will provide back-end solutions including software, payment processing geolocation, and other technological services to the land-based casinos. These online casino and online poker partners will need approval from New Jersey as well, and many of these business-to-business companies have been approved to offer such services to New Jersey residents.

The following is a list of approved online-casino-related firms that have received approval to do business in regards to online poker in New Jersey:

Aristotle International Inc, Certegy Check Services Inc, Cognitive Box Consulting LLC, Dbi Staffing Geocomply Inc, Locaid LLC, Player Verify LLC, Pokertrip Enterprises Inc, Poker Venture LLC, Securetrading Inc, US Casino Marketing LLC, and Xyverify Corp.

The state will also be approving “Internet Gaming Related Vendor Registrants.” Such companies that have received permission include the following:

Alexander Schneider USA Inc., Ecomaccess Inc, Envoy Inc, Forte Payment Systems Inc, Interactive Communications Intl, ITC Financial Licenses Inc, Kalixa USA Inc, Mazooma Inc, Nbx Merchant Services Inc., Paynearme Mt Inc, Paysafecard.com USA Inc, Sightline Interactive, Skrill USA Inc, Vantiv Payment Systems LLC, Worldpay Limited Counting House Services Ltd., Zycko Limited Digital.

Fifty-four various companies were approved to begin working with casino and Internet license holders and serve as subsidiaries and vendors for the brand new New Jersey online gambling market. The state’s in-depth approval process will be a precendent for other states as more states pass online gambling legislature and go through the same process of evaluating the conduct and past of these companies due to the short but sordid past of online gambling.

Online gamers will need to be located inside New Jersey borders to participate in online gambling. They will be able to register and play for real money at the approved casinos via computers and mobile devices without the fear or guilt of playing at unregulated online casinos and poker sites.
