Three More New Jersey Licenses Issued this Week
Golden Nugget, Trump Plaza and Trump Taj Mahal all received their internet gaming licenses this week in New Jersey. This brings the total number of licensees in New Jersey to four after Borgata was approved last week. The issuing of a license does not guarantee a site will launch on November 26th, the expected date that New Jersey regulated gaming will go live. Software providers must be approved and all testing must be completed before a company will be allowed to offer online gaming in Nevada.
The Division of Gaming Enforcement’s website shows up to date information on licensed companies here.
