Blackjack Games in New Jersey Offer Safe, Fun Online Alternative

Online gamblers love their casino games, whether they be slots, video poker, or table games such as blackjack or baccarat. Unfortunately, most of the punters located in the United States are required to continue visiting unlicensed and offshore casinos, as the government of the United States has failed to take any meaningful steps toward regulating the activity within their borders. Punters that live in or are visiting New Jersey do have options however, as the state government passed online gaming regulation and began offering services in 2013, and those who want to play blackjack online will find multiple spots to play at.

Those who like to play blackjack online will find that they can play the popular card game through sites like CaesarsCasino.com, HarrahsCasino.com, 888, Betfair, The Borgata, and more. The games are provided through a series of top game providers such as 888, bwin, Ongame, and others. The games can be played by anyone over the age of 21 and located within the state borders of New Jersey, which is verified using IP addresses and the GPS function on your smartphone. Games are generally available to play on your desktop, although there is also a selection of mobile blackjack games available through the betting sites.

Internet blackjack information site OnlineBlackjack has been reporting on both land and online blackjack information for years, and it has a definitive guide on New Jersey blackjack  including the rules from the various software providers offering their games in the Garden State.

“The online blackjack market in New Jersey has really evolved since it launched just a few years ago,” said OnlineBlackjack owner Josh Chan. “Players located within New Jersey can choose to play at a variety of sites, and the protections included in the regulated market ensure that there is no nefarious activity going on with the games. We are hopeful that we will continue to see the internet blackjack market continue to evolve throughout the United States.”

One prime example of the market evolving in New Jersey is the addition of games from Swedish developer Net Entertainment, which recently began offering its casino games in New Jersey on a transactional waiver as they await full licensing from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement. The transactional waiver will allow the company’s slots and table games to be offered to punters, with the casino already inking deals with the Borgata, bwin, and Caesars online casino sites to offer their games.

Commenting on their New Jersey launch Net Ent America’s Managing Director Björn Krantz said, "I am very pleased that we are now live with a selection of our multichannel games for desktop and mobile with bwin.party in New Jersey. This launch marks yet another milestone achievement towards our objective to drive the online casino market forward together with our partners in New Jersey."

The New Jersey online gambling market was spurred to life because of the struggling land casino market in Atlantic City. The state’s lawmakers came together in a bi-partisan agreement to legalize, regulate, and tax online gambling following a Department of Justice opinion in 2011 that ruled that The Wire Act of 1961 only applied to sportsbetting, essentially opening the door for states to make a decision as to the legality of online gambling. On February 23rd, 2013 Republican Governor Chris Christie signed Assembly Bill 2578 into law, and the state’s online gambling market opened its doors on November 21st of the same year. Although it struggled to get off the ground initially, online gambling has been a nice contributor to the gambling industry. In November 2015 the state’s online casinos brought in $13.2 million in revenues, which was up 51% from the same period last year and saved the industry’s casinos from posting a drop in revenue when compared to the same period last year.
