Only land-based casinos operating in Atlantic City are eligible to receive an Internet Gaming Permit under he New Jersey online gambling law approved in 1913. (P.L. 2013, c. 27) The law authorizes online providers to offer any game that meets the state's current standards for casino games. The list includes popular table games such as blackjack, roulette, baccarat, craps, mini baccarat, three-card poker, red dog, and pai gow poker, as well as slot machines, video poker and other variations of poker. In practice, however, online casinos have limited the types of games available online, with the most frequent games comprised of Blackjack, Roulette, Three Card Poker, and Let It Ride.
The minimum age to open an account in New Jersey is 21. Online gamblers must be physically located within the state while playing, but players do not need to be New Jersey residents.
The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement in the Department of Law and Public Safety oversees the regulation of New Jersey online sites along with the operations of land-based Atlantic City casinos. It handles the regulations and ensures that funds are protected.
In 2018, New Jersey online gambling generated a record $298.7 million in revenue for the year, bringing the total since online betting was approved in 2013 to just over $1 billion. DraftKings Sportsbook, affiliated with the Resorts Casino Hotel, has been the leader in online betting, accounting for some 45% of New Jersey's online win in 2018. FanDuel Sportsbook at The Meadowlands Race Track is the leading retail sportsbook with nearly 50% of the statewide market in 2018, benefiting from its proximity to New York bettors.
