New Jersey Provides Lists in Preparation of Online Gaming Launch

New Jersey is scheduled to launch New Jersey online gambling on November 26. The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement shared two lists of companies that will be offering online gaming when it is launched this month.

The first was a list of companies that have been approved to offer online gaming when it launches in a couple of weeks. These companies have received online gaming permits and are working with partners who have also been licensed.

The second list mentioned companies that are eligible to receive a transaction waiver, but do not have the partners needed to launch an online gaming site. These companies will need to collaborate with other firms before they can participate in the regulated online gaming market. Paddy Power was one of the companies that may be able to participate. However, they will need to form a partnership with an Atlantic City casino in accordance with New Jersey’s interactive gaming law.

Paddy Power has received an online poker license in Nevada, but still hasn’t launched an online gaming site. The firm primarily focuses on land-based gambling, but has a strong online gambling presence in Europe. The company’s shareholders hope that they can find an Atlantic City casino to partner with.

A couple of other online gaming providers are looking for partners. The list includes Betable, Genesis Gaming, Williams Interactive, Scientific Games and Pala Interactive. PokerStars’s name is not on the list, because its application is still being processed (and there is some serious doubt about whether they will succeed in their application.)

All of these companies would like to compete in the newly regulated online gaming market. However, most Atlantic City casinos have already found partners. This will mean some of the online gaming companies on the list will not be able to offer their services in the Garden State.
