Internet Gambling in New Jersey
Calendar Year 2015 report to the Division of Gambling Enforcement
It is estimated that 0.1% to 13% of the adult population gambles on the Internet. In New Jersey, players report that the primary appeal of Internet gambling, is the convenience and speed of play, 24‐7 availability and comfort of gambling from home. At the time of this report, it has been three years since Governor Chris Christie signed into law an amended bill, legalizing Internet gaming through licensed partnerships with Atlantic City casinos. Gamblers in New Jersey must be at least 21 and located within New Jersey while gambling online. Due to the significant investment on the part of the Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE), operators and research team to distill voluminous data into measurable files, the 2014 report provided only demographics and account summaries. This report, prepared pursuant to N.J.S.A. 5:12‐95.18, is the second in a series of four annual reports, examining the overall impact of Internet gaming and problematic patterns of play and the relationship to the state‐wide prevalence of problem gambling. Analyses in this report are focused on player demographics, play patterns and use of responsible gambling features from the first full year of operation, 2014; subsequent reports will feature play data from 2015 and 2016.
