The testing phase has now ended in the state of New Jersey and six casinos have received approval for full permits for operation. During the testing phase, the Division of Gaming Enforcement were happy with the geolocation services and no major issues were reported. It was reported that the DGE Director, David Rebuck, made the announcement on Monday that the casinos were ready for action.
The following casinos have been given full permits for operation:
- Trump Taj Mahal Casino
- Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa
- Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino
- Caesars Atlantic City
- Bally’s Atlantic City
- Tropicana Casino and Resort
The Golden Nugget is still undergoing testing and is not live like the other six casinos. They will continue the ‘soft launch’ phase until further notice. There are also still banking issues in the state. As we reported earlier, certain financial institutions have opted out of offering transactions for game play including American Express, Wells Fargo, Discover Financial Services and Bank of America. These financial institutions do not want to be involved with online gambling in the US, so many players have been left without a financial options for deposit and withdrawal.
However, as of today, eWallet Skrill is now available at the Tropicana and Virgin and will be added to other online gaming sites by the end of the day in New Jersey. According to a recent report by Pokerfuse, Skrill has signed contracts with may sites and will be offering their services over the coming weeks as more sites are launched in the state.
Skrill will make it easy for players to make a deposit or withdrawal, especially those who would normally use the financial institutions that opted out of the option. Players will also be able to use their mobile to use the eWallet now that Skrill has launched a new app. Players will be able to check their balance as well as send money and request money.
