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 seaside and at county fairs, thoroughbred horse racing 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. Sportsbetting is not allowed but the case may be headed to the United States Supreme Court.


There are no Tribal casinos in the state and all casinos are currently located within Atlantic City. Online gaming and Atlantic City casino gambling are 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 the Legalized Games of Chance Control Commission under the direction of the Division of Consumer Affairs.


New Jersy voters legalized gambling in Atlantic City on November 2, 1976, by a vote of 1,535,249 (56.53%) to 1,180,799 (43.47%). The New Jersey Casino Control Act was signed into law the next year and Resorts International Casino was the first 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. Nearly all of the casinos in Atlantic City offer online gaming in 2018 with more than 20 domain names between them. Online players must be within the state's borders to log on or play. Read more about the success of New Jersey online casinos after five years of operations here.

 

The casinos of New Jersey

 

When the only commercial casinos in the eastern United States were located in Atlantic City, properties there did quite well and the planned economic benefits to the seashore city were manifold. However with the eventual market saturation of dozens of "racinos" and state supplied lottery casinos nearby in New York and elsewhere, along with the great recession, the casino's fortunes faded. For an in-depth and up-to-date guide, including history, news, statistics and the current state of the industry in the Boardwalk City, please see our Atlantic City Gambling Guide.


At their peak in 2006, Atlantic City casinos were powerful economic engines. But the numbers have gone downhill since then. At the beginning of 2014, there were 12 casinos in operation. Four casinos closed that year, and another in 2016. The Atlantic Club, Trump Plaza, Showboat, and Revel closed in 2014. Carl Icahn closed Trump Taj Mahal in 2016. The Revel may reopen as TEN Atlantic City in early 2017. The surviving casinos are doing well with less competition. Online gambling revenues are also making a slow but steady climb in AC. 

 

Pari-mutuel facilities in New Jersey

 

Live horse racing in New Jersey occurs at three locations - Freehold Raceway (standardbred only) Monmouth Park (thoroughbred only) and Meadowland Racetrack (thoroughbred and standardbred). Atlantic City Racecourse closed in early 2015.


Each of the live racing facilities also has daily simulcast race betting. Borgata is the only casino left to offer simulcast betting and a racebook. Caesars closed theirs in 2015. So expect big crowds fighting for one of the 105 seats in Borgata's simulcast room on big race days like the Kentucky Derby. 


Six off-track betting or Off Track Wagering (OTW) facilities are licensed including Favorites at Tom's River and Winners Bayonne.


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, and for a $5 billion casino in Jersey City. The election November 8, 2016, will determine if that's possible when voters say yes or no to Question 1: "Do you approve amending the Constitution to permit casino gambling in two additional counties in this State? At present, casino gambling is allowed only in Atlantic City in Atlantic County. Only one casino in each of the two counties would be permitted. Each casino is to be located in a town that is at least 72 miles from Atlantic City. The amendment would allow certain persons to apply first for a casino license.


'Certain Persons' are existing Atlantic City casino license holders who would have 6 months to present plans before anyone else got a chance to bid.

New Jersey Casinos and Gambling in Summary

 

Although the days of being the number two casino town in the world are over, Atlantic City cannot be counted out and still offers visitors a full range of gambling venues ranging from the new "locals" favorite Resorts Casino Hotel to the Borgata, Golden Nugget, Tropicana, Caesar's, Harrah's or Bally'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 an account flush, or waiting out a pending period at most online casinos!
