New Jersey set the example of how to regulate online casinos. The industry launched on November 26, 2013. Most Atlantic City casinos launched websites through partners that offer games like craps, blackjack, roulette, Three Card Poker, slots and video poker. The industry has been successful ever since, often breaking revenue records. It helped keep some tax revenue and jobs alive during the Atlantic City casino closure in 2020 due to the pandemic.
Online casino, sports and poker players must be at least 21 years old. Geolocation software is used to determine the player’s location within state lines. Those outside New Jersey will be unable to play.
Online poker rooms are also licensed through Atlantic City casinos. We cover that in our New Jersey online poker section.
