New Jersey Review

New Jersey Casinos & Gambling

Gambling opportunities in New Jersey include casino gambling in Atlantic City, the New Jersey Lottery, bingos & raffles, amusement games with risk and reward at county fairs, thoroughbred horseracing and standardbred harness racing, off-track betting, and online poker and casino gambling. New Jersey's gambling laws are among the most permissive in the United States, with statehouse and court efforts to be able to include sports betting in the near future if successful.

There are no Tribal casinos in the state and all casinos are located within Atlantic City. Online gaming and Atlantic City casino gambling is regulated by the New Jersey Casino Control Commission, and race betting is handled by the New Jersey Racing Commission. Bingo,  raffles, and amusement games are administered by Legalized Games of Chance Control Commission under the direction of the Division of Consumer Affairs.

Legalized casino gambling was approved by voters in 1976, the New Jersey Casino Control Act was signed into law the next year and Resorts Atlantic City was the first casino to open in 1978.

After several stalled attempts and a veto by Governor Chris Christie, Online gambling was finally approved on February 26, 2013 with overwhelming support.

The casinos and gambling games of New Jersey

When the only two places to legally gamble in the United States were Atlantic City and Nevada casinos, properties in Atlantic City did quite well and the planned economic benefits to the seashore city were manifold. However with the market saturation of hundreds if not thousands of "racinos" and state supplied lottery casinos nearby in New York and elsewhere, along with the great recession, the casino's fortunes began to fade.

2014 saw the shuttering of the Atlantic Club, and the new upscale Revel (opened in 2012) filing for bankruptcy in June. Online revenues were disappointing and well under predictions for the first year. Bally's sold off the Claridge Tower section of their property and consolidated the Wild Wild West casino into their base operations. The Atlantic Club was not allowed to offer its gaming and property for sale together and it was cannibalized and scrapped. Trump Plaza and The Showboat also closed before the end of 2014.

However several properties are doing well, especially with the reduction in competition. Bally's AC completed an upgrade and renovation of their gambling floor, opening up parts of the Wild Wild West section that had been closed for a decade. A new party pit and more WSOP poker tables were added as they reach out to a younger, more 'hip' crowd.

Online gambling revenues are also making a slow but steady climb.

Pari-mutuel facilities in New Jersey

Live horse racing in New Jersey occurs at three locations -  Freehold Raceway, Monmouth Park, and Meadowland Racetrack. Standardbred (including harness racing) and thoroughbred racing are held with various meet times. Atlantic City Racecourse closed in early 2015.

Each of the live racing facilities also has daily simulcast race betting. As of this writing the only casino still offering a racebook was the Borgata.

Four off-track betting or OTW facilities are licenced including Favorites at Tom's River and Favorites at Vineland.

As the state struggles to come to terms with their new place in the Eastern gambling landscape, plans are in the works for a Hard Rock Casino to open at Meadowlands, while other areas are vying for a chance to open casinos in the north if a measure makes it to the ballot box and voters approve.

New Jersey Casinos and Gambling in Summary

Although the days of being the number two casino town in the world are probably over, Atlantic City can not be counted out and still offers visitors a full range of gambling venues ranging from the "locals" favorite Resorts Casino Hotel to the more upscale Tropicana or Caesar's.

Horse racing is alive and well with some of the best tracks in the country, and online gambling for those playing from within the state's borders offers exciting opportunities. If you are playing from your hotel room at, say,
Caesars Atlantic City Hotel & Casino, you can simply walk to the cashier's cage and collect your online winnings. Now that beats asking for a flush, or waiting out a pending period at most online casinos!
