New Jersey’s Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) has urged iGaming licence applicants to supply all necessary information

New Jersey’s Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) has urged iGaming licence applicants to supply all necessary information in order to complete their applications.

The DGE sent a letter to all casinos concerned in September explaining that failure to submit the required documents by the September 20 deadline will mean it will not be able “to review and approve submissions and address licensing issues necessary for the issuance of a transactional waiver or Interim Casino Authorization”.

The ICA is the document that will enable New Jersey’s land-based casinos to offer online gaming products to residents of the state. The Division requested information on all applicants’ hardware and game software formats that will be used on their platforms.

The regulator is also requesting all contractual documents pertaining to:
• geolocation
• know your customer and age verification
• payment processing systems
• responsible gaming measures
• anti-money laundering
• player collusion
• remote gaming server

The licensing procedures will take place over a series of weeks into October, with a proposed date of November 23 pencilled in as a possible launch date for iGaming operators to go live with their intra-state offers.

So far, ten of Atlantic City’s twelve casinos have publicly announced their interactive partners, with only Atlantic Club and Revel still to formally make a declaration. 2UP Gaming and Wynn Interactive are also circling, with both companies keen to enter the market either through the acquisition of an existing casino, or through building a new one.

So far, Caesars’ four casino properties - Caesars Atlantic City, Harrah’s, Bally’s and Showboat - will be powered by 888 Holdings in a deal that mirrors the pair’s relationship in Nevada. The Resorts Casino has arguably the most eye-catching deal, partnering with PokerStars, but also the most intriguing; a partnership between a casino without a poker room and an online poker room without casino software. However, Rational Group’s announcement that Full Tilt Gaming will offer casino gaming shed some light on how this deal will pan out. The two Trump casinos have engineered separate deals, Trump Taj Mahal partnering with Ultimate Gaming and Trump Plaza linking with Betfair. Other deals see partnerships between the Borgata (MGM/Boyd) and, and the Golden Nugget and Bally Technologies.
