ATLANTIC CITY – On June 14, 2013, the Division of Gaming Enforcement published a new webpage addressing frequently asked questions (“FAQ”) on Internet gaming at www.nj.gov/oag/ge/internetgaming_faqs.html.
The FAQs address the approval process for Internet gaming licenses and gaming products, and outline the objectives of the Division.
“The Division of Gaming Enforcement is fully committed to a robust Internet gaming system in New Jersey that promotes public confidence in the effectiveness and integrity of the regulatory process and oversight of gaming operations,” said Director David Rebuck.
The Division is requiring each casino that intends to participate in Internet gaming to submit a detailed request to obtain an Internet Gaming Permit no later than June 30, 2013.
The deadline for filing completed licensing applications for all vendors is July 29, 2013.
“This filing deadline for completed applications for licensure will allow the Division time to complete the investigation and make an expedient determination of suitability for Internet providers and ancillary companies to commence Internet gaming. Entities that do not meet this deadline will have their proposals considered as received,” said Rebuck.
Additionally, any game offered to patrons for wagering must be submitted to and approved by the Division’s Technical Services Bureau (“TSB”). All vendors, including ancillary vendors, are required to file a product submission on or before July 29, 2013.
The objective of the TSB is to ensure regulatory compliance of all Internet gaming products, including games software, computer networks and required ancillary functions.
