N.J. approves Golden Nugget for Web betting
ATLANTIC CITY - The Golden Nugget started offering Internet gambling in New Jersey as of midnight.
Regulators with the state Division of Gaming Enforcement kept Golden Nugget restricted to trial play when six other casinos were cleared to begin offering full online gambling Nov. 25.
Golden Nugget said it was working out glitches with its system and would not open until it was ready to give its customers a first-class experience.
It will be the seventh of Atlantic City's 12 casinos to offer Internet gambling. The Borgata, the two Trump casinos, the Tropicana, Bally's and Caesars currently offer it.
Resorts also has been cleared to offer it, but its online partner, PokerStars, has been barred from Internet gambling in New Jersey for two years.
