Handheld Gambling Devices Approved For Casino Guests

Atlantic City casino patrons would soon be able to gamble next to the pool, in their hotel rooms or while waiting in line for the buffet under a bill that got final approval in the New Jersey legislature Thursday.

The bill would enable casino patrons to use handheld gambling devices, so long as they are located on casino property.

It’s another in a series of new gambling options Atlantic City is rolling out in its attempt to compete with casinos in nearby states that have diverted thousands of customers and millions of dollars from the seaside resort. New Jersey is also moving toward offering Internet gambling and sports betting.

The handheld gambling bill now goes to Gov. Chris Christie, who has not indicated whether he supports it.
