When most gamblers think of New Jersey they think of Atlantic City, the state’s hotbed for casino action. New Jersey maintains a regulated land-based gambling industry consisting of commercial casinos and horse racing that attracts visitors from all over the world, as well as local residents. Recently, New Jersey took a major step by legalizing online gambling with new laws that went into effect in 2013.

New Jersey’s licensed online gambling sites started accepting real money bets at the end of 2013. The newly licensed gambling sites currently offer a wide range of games including, but not limited to, online poker, online casino games such as slots, as well as table games like blackjack and roulette.

Currently, there are a number of online gambling websites that accept wagers from New Jersey residents. These casinos offer the same services you would expect to find at any internet casino: secure transactions, licensed, convenient payment options and 24-hour customer service. This applies not only to online casinos, but also sportsbooks, and poker rooms from some of the top offshore gambling providers.

Online gambling in New Jersey is unique in that it offers residents the option to engage in sportsbetting, which is not available offline. Sportsbetting is hugely popular and offers gamblers the chance to pocket big winnings. Online sportsbooks are safe, licensed, and mobile and live betting is also available. By late 2013 New Jersey residents were given the option to play poker at state-regulated poker sites. These trustworthy online poker rooms offer you secure deposits; fast cash outs, and your personal information is always protected. If sportsbetting and poker aren’t your thing, New Jersey online casinos also offer regulated Bingo games!

As of November 2013, online casinos and poker rooms are legal within the state of New Jersey. While there are still many offshore gambling sites that take bets from New Jersey residents on sports, online sportsbetting is not approved or regulated by the state. If you sign up and play within the borders of New Jersey online gambling is perfectly legal. New Jersey residents can gamble online while outside of the state (for travel, work, etc.) and anyone physically present in New Jersey, including non-residents (ie tourists), can gamble online legally.

New Jersey imposes strict age requirements for gambling. This applies to online and offline gambling. Some sites may require you to be 21, even though the law dictates that you can gamble at certain places at 18. If you are 18 years of age or older you can participate in lottery, bingo, horse/dog racing, and online bingo in the state of New Jersey. You must be 21 or older to play at land-based and online casinos, land-based and online poker, and online sportsbooks and there are penalties for anyone who attempt to do so when they are not of legal gambling age. If you do meet the age and residency requirements you are free to enjoy all the fun and benefits of playing at a legal New Jersey online casino.
