NJ Assembly Approves Internet Gambling Bill

Internet gambling in New Jersey has moved a step closer to reality.

The Assembly approved the proposal Monday. It would allow Atlantic City casinos to accept Internet bets from gamblers in other states, as long as such activity is consistent with federal law.

The measure now heads to the full Senate for its consideration, but a vote there has not yet been scheduled.

New Jersey is moving rapidly to increase the number and types of legalized gambling it offers.

In addition to online gambling, the state also plans to move forward with sports betting, despite a federal lawsuit filed by the major professional sports leagues and the NCAA to block it.
