The Tropicana Casino and Resort is the latest Atlantic City casino to line up an online partner to help it offer Internet gambling later this year.The Trop has joined with Gamesys Limited, which runs the jackpotjoy.com website.

Atlantic City casinos are scrambling to forge alliances with Internet betting companies once Internet gambling becomes legal in New Jersey. It is due to start Nov. 26, although the start date could be pushed back if regulators determine the state is not yet ready for it.

So far, nine of the 12 casinos have announced their Internet plans. A 10th is widely reported to have selected a partner and two have yet to say anything about their online plans.

New Jersey is looking to Internet gambling to help revive the casinos.
