Gaming Expansion Bill Advances In NJ

On Monday, December 5 in Trenton, New Jersey, an Assembly gaming committee voted 4-3 in favour of advancing a piece of legislation (A4255) that calls for the introduction of alternative gaming areas in at least a few of the state’s horse racetracks.

According to an article by politico.com, A4255 would allow the operators of the Meadowlands Racetrack and Monmouth Park to partner with current Atlantic City casinos in order for the tracks to lease a space in their facilities to the AC casinos.

The result would be ‘internet cafes’ that would be able to offer gambling online, due to the fact that internet wagering has already been legalized in the state. The article explains that computers would be set up in the cafes, and that they would look like slot machines. Each computer would offer a particular game.

There is no definite answer as to whether the bill will ultimately advance to the point where it will be the subject of a full-Assembly vote. The article also conveys that it is ‘unlikely’ that A4255 will be addressed by the Senate without some form of amendment.
