New Jersey regulators have given the green light to six of the online gambling operators that took part in the five day trial period and can now go live with real cash games immediately, except for the Golden Nugget that State Gaming Enforcement director David Rebuck says needs to do some more work on the software before they can enter.
All seven of the online operators granted a license took part in the trial period that New began a five-day trial period of online gambling last Thursday. The reason was to test the complex technology involved in the games and determine whether the systems are ready for the entire state to play for real money.
The biggest problem recorded in the trial period was the geolocation software which was registering players outside the state borders when they were actually inside. However regulators believe this to be a minor issue and can be worked out as live gambling takes place.
No timeline for the Golden Nugget has been given and the operator will have to wait until it proves itself before it can enter the online gambling business in the state.
