New Jersey Sports Betting Case Might Come To An End
New Jersey, one of the American states which recently opened up to the online gaming and betting industry, has previously had problems regarding introducing full-fledged sports betting to its residents. Despite the fact that in 2011 regulators enacted a law which was supposed to legalize this activity, major sports leagues have been against it. Thus, the National Football League, the National Basketball Association and various other sports leagues have intended a lawsuit against the current sports betting law, with the final appeal being filed last June.
However, Governor Chris Christie explained that he is feeling confident about how this situation will evolve and that sports betting will be available for New Jersey residents. Christie also expressed the idea that he is not content about the fact that the state of Nevada is the only one that can offer this kind of gaming services to gamblers. Sports leagues commented that they are against this idea due to the fact that sports betting could lead to hurting the integrity of the games involved, but Christie explained that by not legalizing this industry, sports activities might get hurt by operations which are already taking place in New Jersey under cover of the black market. Casino software development companies are also looking forward to offering their products and services to New Jersey operators once the industry is lucrative.
