The five day test phase for online gambling in New Jersey went smooth and the real launch on November 26th went very well, according to sources within the state’s Division of Gaming Enforcement. Apparently it went so well that between the 6 casinos with online gambling websites operating, there have been a total of over 37,000 new accounts created, with 5000 being set up on Thursday alone.
There are still no statistics on usage, real money deposits and win/loss ratios or averages, but it is believed there might be quite a vast number of duplicate user accounts by customers opening secondary accounts at different online casino sites.
According to officials in the Division of Gaming Enforcement, this is the largest expansion of any form of gambling within the state since the opening of the first Atlantic City casino in 1978. New Jersey became the third state to offer online gambling right after Delaware and after Nevada.
