New Jersey enters into online poker agreement with Delaware, Nevada

16 October 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Governor Chris Christie announced last week that he has reached an agreement with Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval and Delaware Governor John Carney to allow internet gaming patrons in New Jersey to play online against players in those two states.

"New Jersey has been a pioneer in the development of authorized, regulated online gaming, which has been a budding success since its launch in late 2013," Governor Christie said. "Pooling players with Nevada and Delaware will enhance annual revenue growth, attract new consumers and create opportunities for players and internet gaming operators. This agreement marks the beginning of a new and exciting chapter for online gaming, and we look forward to working with our partners in Nevada and Delaware in this endeavor."

New Jersey's entry into this multi-state agreement will increase jackpots and opportunities for play while also providing an incentive for operators to expand internet gaming offerings upon locating their gaming servers in New Jersey.

Operators will be able to allow their customers to participate in games such as poker, tournaments and progressive slot games with players in other states where they are licensed. Regulators in each of the three states will have to approve an operator interested in offering games to persons in each state and approve the game software that will be used.

"New Jersey stands prepared to approve a game offering for all three states as soon as an operator submits such a product for testing," said David Rebuck, Director of the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.

Since New Jersey authorized online gaming in November 2013, annual revenues have steadily increased. In 2016, the internet gaming win was $196.7 million, which helped propel Atlantic City to its first year-over-year increase in gaming revenue in almost a decade. Internet gaming revenue is projected to increase further to $240 million in 2017.

New Jersey currently has 23 authorized internet gaming websites. A list of those websites and their Atlantic City casino partners can be found on the state's website.
