NJ Moves Bills Allowing Portable Horse Bets, Lottery Anonymity

New Jersey lawmakers have advanced bills that allow the use of portable betting devices at horse racing tracks, and allow lottery winners to remain anonymous for a year.

A state Senate committee Thursday approved a measure allowing betting on wireless devices at race tracks. A similar bill authorizing the use of such devices at Atlantic City’s casinos has already been approved.

Like that bill, the horse track bill requires that the devices only work on the grounds of the state’s four horse tracks, and provide safeguards to keep children from gambling.

The committee also approved a bill to let lottery winners remain anonymous for one year from the time they win their prize.
