Update: New account creation on the rise in New Jersey

As of Monday, almost 150,000 online gaming accounts had been created in New Jersey since the introduction of online gambling and online poker in November of 2013.

Officials of the Division of Gaming Enforcement stated that not all of the 148,487 accounts created are unique accounts and that probably a large number of them are accounts by the same persons but in different operator's websites.

To date, there are seven casinos offering online gambling and poker to New Jersey residents: the Golden Nugget Atlantic City; the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa; the Tropicana Casino and Resort; Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino; the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort; Caesars Atlantic City and Bally’s Atlantic City.

The Resorts Casino Hotel has also secured a license for online gambling and online poker but it's not operating the site at the moment since its partner PokerStars was suspended from operating within New Jersey due to an indictment that was issued against its founder Isai Scheinberg.
