New Jersey has been searching desperately for wild card to establish a stake in this new fight for gambling dominance in the country. State after state has been introducing slot machines and sometimes table games as a means of improving their revenue. Ever since then Atlantic City, New Jersey has lost its grip on the market that it had cornered for many years. Every new casino that opens on the east coast is essentially taking away some business that once belonged exclusively to Atlantic City. However, now that the days of Atlantic City being the Las Vegas of the east are long gone and the resort town is looking more like one of many gambling venues in the region, New Jersey once again wants a piece of the market that they can call their very own.
Here in 2012 the idea of the Internet being a new untouched market may seem a little absurd, however in for the gambling industry in the United States, the Internet market remains a great frontier. That is the reason that New Jersey is trying to push a bill through the works as fast as possible to regulate online gambling venues in the state. Not only would this give New Jersey a head start on the rest of the gambling markets in the country, but it would create the potential for the online gambling industry to be established in New Jersey. The only reason the brick and mortar gambling industry belongs to Nevada is because they beat everyone else to the punch.
