MOBILE BETTING ON HORSE RACING COMING TO NEW JERSEY
07th December, 2012 at 05:24:31
Approved by the state legislature, bill awaits only the governor's signature
New Jersey governor Chris Christie is the only remaining hurdle to a new law that will allow punters in the Garden State to place wagers on horse races using mobile devices.
Assembly Bill 2610, sponsored by Assemblyman Ron Dancer, has been approved by the state legislature at both Assembly and Senate levels and forwarded to Christie for signature into state law.
It permits the use of mobile electronic gaming devices in all indoor and outdoor areas of racetracks including designated areas of the Meadowlands complex, subject to agreements with facility operators and approvals from the New Jersey Racing Commission.
Dancer said earlier this year that the intention of the bill is to modernise state racing laws, specifically with reference to modern technology such as mobile gaming devices, giving these clear legal standing for use under the auspices of the New Jersey Racing Commission.
Usage of mobile devices includes ascertaining the outcome of racing events, and obtaining wagering information; the live viewing of races via streaming to iOS platform devices is also considered.
