Michael Frawley, head of the Atlantic Club Casino Hotel, tells The Associated Press the online bill is a unique opportunity for Atlantic City to revive its flagging fortunes and save thousands of jobs.

Christie is expected to decide this week whether to sign or veto the bill, which would let gamblers set up accounts with the casinos and play from their homes. He vetoed a similar bill in 2011, citing concerns about its legality.

Frawley says the law could create a wave of new investment in Atlantic City during a time when few companies are interested in the resort.
