The virgincasino.com site is due to launch Friday.

The site was one of 15 approved last fall by New Jersey gambling regulators. But it chose to delay its launch while problems affecting numerous online sites involving login problems, payment issues and software glitches were worked out.

Virgin is partnered with online game maker Gamesys, which also runs the Tropicana online casino site. Virgin says it plans to make New Jersey its online gambling headquarters.

New Jersey’s Internet gambling sites took in $8.4 million between the Nov. 21 launch and the end of the year.

Analysts expect the state to take in between $200 to $500 million this year in online gambling revenue.
