It seems that the gambling revolution in New Jersey will be televised. This is because the guests at one of the biggest New Jersey Casinos, the The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa that is located in Atlantic City are going to be able to enjoy placing bets on their favorite casino games through the remote control of their TVs. The Borgata Hotel Casino launched a beta testing trial for in-room TV betting on slot machines and video poker yesterday, the 18th of February after it has gained the approval of the gambling regulators of the state in January.
This trial will last for ninety days and it is going to be available for guests in most of the 2,800 hotel rooms that are available at the Borgata Hotel Casino. This experiment is certainly going to provide everyone in the gambling industry some insight regarding online gambling that is very close to becoming a reality in New Jersey after Governor Chris Christie has vetoed a bill and gave some pointers. This technology is considered the 1st step at greater things that are coming. The Borgata Hotel Casino is going to incorporate what they have learned, this includes internet and mobile gambling in order to offer players a very exciting experience.
Allin Corp’s subsidiary, Allin Interactive Corp has been delivering such services, in-room gambling, to multiple cruise ships that sail in international waters for years now. Despite that, this experiment in New Jersey is the first ever land based in-room gambling operation to happen in the US.
This is only one part of the gambling revolution that is happening in the US as there are up to 8 American states that are considering ways and laws to legalize internet gambling to different degrees. New Jersey is very close to legalizing it. The market of New Jersey is estimated at one billion dollars.
The lawmakers of New Jersey are very close to passing a bill that would enable casinos in Atlantic City to offer internet gambling services to the residents of New Jersey that are estimated at 8.9 million. This would also provide opportunities for experienced European operators to offer their services to New Jersey residents. Other states such as Pennsylvania are also close to legalizing it. In Nevada and Delaware, forms of internet gambling already exist.
