New Jersey recently moved to legalize online casino games. Now, heading into its second year the challenges and opportunities are clearly evident.
The advent of online casino gaming in New Jersey has been met with a rapturous applause by players across the state. Few would deny the excitement, opportunity and interactive appeal of real money casino games. Combined with a stellar range of games to choose from, the online casinos in New Jersey also offer superior customer support, a realistic gaming milieu, and all the pomp and ceremony of a traditional Atlantic City casino.
In short, the experience mimics the best of what you can find, with all the bells and whistles of a high-class casino experience. Leading from the front in New Jersey is arguably one of the biggest names in the business – Caesars Online Casino.
This prestigious gaming operator is built on solid foundations, with a reputation that spans decades as the benchmark of excellence in the industry. The Caesars brand is a global icon; it is associated with high class entertainment, royal treatment and exceptional winnings. Much the same can be said of its signature online gaming site – CaesarsCasino.com.
Challenges & opportunities for online casinos in New Jersey
In November 2013 Governor Chris Christie signed online gaming into law in the state. This landmark piece of legislation changed the course of online gaming history in New Jersey, the US and the world. For many years it was illegal under federal law and state law to offer real money online casino games to patrons in the US.
New Jersey is but one of 3 states now offering fully legalized online casino games/online poker games to players. The others include Nevada and Delaware. The challenges facing the industry stem from a declining traditional casino revenue base, with 4 casinos shuttering in 2014. Other factors include the lack of awareness among many players in New Jersey that online gaming is 100% licensed, regulated and legal.
Further, the issue of payments processing has been hampered at federal level by the UIGEA. According to the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, US banks and financial institutions cannot transfer money to online gaming operators. As such the approval rate for Visa cards is currently at 50% and the approval rate for MasterCard is currently at 70%.
However other payments processing options are now making their way onto the market in New Jersey, specifically tailored to facilitating money transfers to and from online casinos.
Presently, Caesars Online Casino offers a wide range of safe, secure and trusted payments processing options in the form of: Visa, MasterCard, Neteller, ACH, Pay with Cash, Online Banking Transfer, and Caesars Cage.
