New Jersey Wants to Create Gambling Compacts with Europe
The New Jersey gambling industry is starting to evolve a lot since regulators decided to legalize online casinos and casino software solutions in the state. Up to now, the number of players who already accessed gambling sites increased to 71,000. David Rebuck, director of the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, explained that the number of players who gamble online at New Jersey online sites is increasing by around 3,000 daily. Recent stats revealed that most of those players connected online from near the borders of Pennsylvania and New York.
Even so, analysts revealed that not only American residents wanted to give it a try at New Jersey online casinos, but individuals from several countries in Europe also wanted to play. Unfortunately, anyone who tries to access New Jersey gambling sites from outside the state’s borders is banned and cannot play under state law.
Rebuck already expressed his interest in creating gambling compacts with other American states. Now, it seems that these new statistics made him consider connecting with Europe in order to allow Europeans to gamble at New Jersey online casinos. Taking into consideration that many European countries are already experienced in choosing casino software solutions and the online gambling industry in general, this plan could be put into practice in the near future.
Rebuck also said that he is looking forward to collaborating with American states that already legalized online gambling, in order to connect slot players and thus raise jackpots worth hundreds of millions of dollars for players. Nevada is the first one who will most probably create a gambling compact with New Jersey.
