03rd December, 2013 at 01:10:18
14,000 new signups since Thanksgiving
The flow of online gamblers to New Jersey's newly launched online casino and poker sites has continued unabated since Thanksgiving Day last Friday, with another 14,000 accounts opened to boost the total thus far to around 51,000, reports the Associated Press news agency.
Six Atlantic City casinos: the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa; the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort; Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino; the Tropicana Casino and Resort; Bally's Atlantic City and Caesars Atlantic City reported encouraging levels of business.
A seventh, The Golden Nugget Atlantic City decided to wait a week to launch its online betting while it works out last-minute problems with some systems, and could join the others sometime this week.
AP reports that the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement could not say how many individual gamblers actually signed up; some users have probably created accounts with more than one gambling site.
On Thanksgiving Day alone, 5,000 new accounts were created (see previous report).
The division will release its first revenue report from online gambling in January 2014.
