In a potential landmark approval, the world’s largest poker site, Pokerstars, received approval to offer online gambling for residents of New Jersey. This is another notch in the return of online poker to New Jersey residents following Black Friday and potentially a breakthrough for other states to follow. Since 2013, New Jersey has allowed online gambling through approved sites. It’s started slow with revenues of 100,000,000 but has been showing an increase over last year.
Having one of the largest , most popular sites with major jackpots everyday will probably be the ticket to bring online gambling back to the US in a major way.
Other states may follow since Pokerstars had to pass a rigorous and unheard of DGE, Division of Gambling Enforcement, review process. Other states namely Pa and Ny may look to share in the fortunes of New Jersey. Look for legislation to start in 1-2 years.
Players must be in New Jersey to play. That could mean a laptop in a train station or physical address. Ha ha.
