Six casinos from Atlantic City will launch their online presence on November 26th. This is a major step forward and a long awaited one that was made possible by the Division of Gaming Enforcement in New Jersey, which issued last Friday, November 8th, Transactional Waivers to some online gaming companies.
The casinos from Atlantic City that will go online due to their partnership with online companies are Borgata, Golden Nugget, Trump Plaza, Tropicana, Caesars and Trump Taj Mahal. A seventh casino, Resorts, is still waiting to be allowed to operate online, although everything makes it seem as if its moment will come soon, too.
Online casinos were illegal in the US for a long time, and the industry’s operators and the public had been waiting for the online market to open with a lot of patience. The state of Nevada was the one who broke the ice, becoming the first state to make online gambling legal within its boundaries earlier this year.
New Jersey was also in the race and with high chances of becoming the first state where online gambling became legal, but was left behind by Nevada. However, the state home to Atlantic City, the most important entertainment and gambling city in the east of the US, is now playing in the field of states with legalized online casino games.
So all of you who would love to visit Atlantic City and its wonderful casinos won’t have to wait to collect the money to buy a flight to go over there. From the comfort of your computer, smartphone or tablet, you’ll be able to feel the excitement of the best casino games from Atlantic City, whether you like slots or some table games. And maybe by playing and winning great prizes in all of those casino games, you will be able to buy yourself that plane ticket and travel to Atlantic City after all.
The story doesn’t end there though. The six afore-mentioned casinos will be the first ones from Atlantic City to begin providing online games, but not the last ones. The Division of Gaming Enforcement (DEG) announced that eight other companies will also be able to follow the steps of their colleagues as long as they close an agreement with some online game platform and request the authorization. So be prepared to enjoy very soon all of Atlantic City’s casinos right there from your home or mobile device.
¡It seems that online gambling in the US is now here to stay!
