New Jersey Gives More Than Two Dozen Companies Online Poker Preliminary OK

Online Poker Industry There Less Than A Month Away


On Friday, New Jersey gaming regulators released a long list of firms that have received a preliminary OK to be involved with the online gambling industry in the Garden State.

New Jersey will become the third state in the United States to offer legal and regulated online betting when it kicks off games on Nov. 26.

Under state law, only New Jersey casinos, those within Atlantic City, can run the games, but that doesn’t mean they will go it alone.

Such casino firms typically don’t have much, if any, expertise running and overseeing games on the web, so they will be partnering with technology providers for back-end solutions, services ranging from the gambling software itself to geolocation and payment processing. Firms that will market the sites will also need approval.

As the document from the state says, "Pursuant to section N.J.S.A. 5:12-92a(3) of the New Jersey Casino Control Act, Ancillary Casino Service Industry Enterprise’s (“CSIE”) are those enterprises that provide goods or services ancillary to gaming activity. "

Those firms include for the new online gambling industy: Geocomply Inc, Securetrading Inc, Xyverify Corp, Pokertrip Enterprises Inc, Dbi Staffing, Locaid LLC, Poker Venture LLC, Player Verify LLC, Certegy Check Services Inc, Cognitive Box Consulting LLC, Aristotle International Inc and US Casino Marketing LLC.

Also, New Jersey allows “Internet Gamin Related Vendor Registrants.”

Those companies on the list are as follows: Kalixa USA Inc, Worldpay Limited Counting House Services Ltd., Vantiv Payment Systems LLC, Paynearme Mt Inc, Skrill USA Inc, Forte Payment Systems Inc, USA Inc, Nbx Merchant Services Inc., Sightline Interactive, Interactive Communications Intl, ITC Financial Licenses Inc, Mazooma Inc, Zycko Limited Digital, Envoy Inc, Ecomaccess Inc, Alexander Schneider USA Inc.

In addition to those business-to-business providers, a handful of casinos have been licensed already for online gambling. New Jersey has 12 casinos.
