Nevada-Based Ultimate Gaming Will Bring Online Gambling to NJ via Trump Taj Majal Casino
Nevada’s first legal online gambling website UltimateGaming teams up with Atlantic City’s Trump Taj Mahal Casino, to bring not only online poker but also various forms of online casino games to New Jersey. The announcement came out last Monday, right after the deadline set for Internet-based gaming operators and Atlantic City casinos to submit their completed application for online gaming operations in NJ’s jurisdiction.
By acquiring Ultimate Gaming and its Ultimate Poker brand, Nevada-based Station Casinos attained its objective of being the first casino to offer real-money online poker games in the Silver State. The move gave Ultimate Gaming a head start in addressing setbacks, technical glitches and player issues, as far as going live legally in the U.S., is concerned.
Although Station Casinos has no land-based gambling establishment in Atlantic City, the Trump Taj Mahal partnership provided the solution. This will make it possible for UltimateGaming.com to duplicate its feat of being the first; but this time, as a legal gaming website in New Jersey that offers a wide-range of real-money casino games. This is because NJ’s online gambling bill embraces a full range of online casino games.
Many expect the signing of an interstate gambling compact between Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval and NJ Governor Chris Christie. The compact will enable legal-aged online players in the two jurisdictions to compete in online poker games and tournaments, as poker is the only interactive game recognized as legal under Nevada’s online gambling laws.
