New Jersey has signed an interstate compact with Delaware and Nevada to share online poker player pools. Delaware and Nevada have already a deal in place to share player pools but the new agreement will open the doors for New Jersey punters too. This new agreement allows the punters in New Jersey to take part in it. Chris Christie, Governor of New Jersey, signed the deal with Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval and Delaware Governor John Carney.
New Jersey’s entry into the US multistate agreement will also increase jackpots and opportunities for play. Now, if an operator wishes to offer such services to players, regulators in each of the three states would need to approve the game software that will be used. Delaware, Nevada and New Jersey are the only three US states to legalize such form of online gaming.
Meanwhile, New Jersey has experienced growth in its own online gaming market, with revenue from internet gambling in September up 25.6% year-on-year to $20.4m (€17.3m).
