More Names Added to NJ Online Gambling Approval List as Launch Draws Near

This article may be outdated. Get the latest news on New Jersey here.
The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) released an update to the state’s various iGaming license lists today.

The update is expected to be the last one before the state launches their beta test of online gambling on November 21st.

A full launch is scheduled for November 26th, pending a successful beta launch.

Who’s new on the list

Today’s update only added a handful of names to the Ancillary Companies & Internet Gaming Vendor lists:

  • LocationSmart
  • Arbor Network
  • OPL Payment Services

The DGE confirms that no additional updates are scheduled for today – meaning no new transactional waivers.

Initial online gambling revenue numbers to be release in January

Interest in the amount of revenue online gambling is generating in New Jersey? Your first peek at those numbers will come January 14th, 2014.

That’s when the DGE will post revenue numbers for November (including the soft play period).

Internet Gaming Permit list also updated

In a separate, but related, update, New Jersey authorities added two names to the list of Internet Gaming Permit holders today: Caesars and Bally’s.

Those approvals leave only Resorts, Revel and ACC without a permit to conduct online gambling in New Jersey.

Additional waves of iGaming approvals likely

While this probably the last update before tomorrow’s “soft launch” of New Jersey online gambling, it’s not the last word when it comes to regulated NJ online gambling.

The DGE has made it clear that they will continue to review applications following the initial launch, and a number of companies – oeprators and supporting businesses – are expected

Where PokerStars stands now

As many already anticipated after last week’s updates, it appears that PokerStars will not be taking part in the initial launch of online gambling in New Jersey.

That is far from a death knell for the company’s New Jersey prospects. Our understanding is that the company remains in negotiations with New Jersey regulators.

That status quo was echoed by the The Press of Atlantic City’s Jennifer Bogdan:

Complete list of transactional waiver recipients

Companies with a transactional waiver are “authorized to engage in Internet gaming activities.”

The complete DGE list is available here. Short version:

  • Caesars and Amaya.
  • Tropicana and Gamesys.
  • Bally’s and 888.
  • Trump Taj Mahal and Ultimate Gaming / CAMS.
  • Golden Nugget and Bally Technologies / Amaya.
  • Borgata and bwin.party / Amaya / CAMS.
  • Trump Plaza and Betfair / GameAccount / Amaya / CAMS.

Complete list of companies deemed eligible for a transactional waiver

What’s the difference between this and the preceding list? According to the DGE, these companies are “currently authorized to engage in Internet gaming related business transactions once they enter into an agreement with a casino licensee or platform provider and petition the Director of the Division for a Transactional Waiver.”

That means these companies have a tentative green light, but are still lacking a formal partnership and have yet to formally apply for a transactional waiver

You can review the complete list here. Short version:

  • Paddy Power.
  • Genesis Gaming, Inc.
  • Betable New Jersey.
  • Rush Street Interactive.
  • Evolution New Jersey.
  • Williams Interactive.
  • Pala Interactive.
  • Scientific Games International.

Complete list of iGaming Permit Holders

An Internet Gaming Permit can only be issued to a land-based casino and is required for a casino to offer regulated online gambling.

Current permit holders as of November 15th:
