Senator Ray Lesniak

A recent U.S. Justice Department opinion opened the door for cash-strapped states and their lotteries to bring online gambling to their residents, as long as it does not involve sports betting.

New Jersey Senator Ray Lesniak says, “I want my legislation to authorize Atlantic City’s casinos to conduct online gaming through both committees in the Senate and the Assembly on Thursday and have a floor vote on Mo9nday and get it to the Governor’s desk.”

Governor Chris Christie’s spokesman has not responded to a request for comment on the bill, but Lesniak is hopeful the Governor will support it. He explains, “The Justice Department has given us the green light and alleviated one of the concerns of Governor Christie when he vetoed my legislation last year.”

Lesniak says online gaming would bring millions of dollars to the state’s coffers and thousands of jobs to Atlantic City.
