In a press release dated October 9 2012,(1) the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General, Division of Gaming Enforcement unveiled new temporary regulations applicable to mobile gaming in Atlantic City casinos. Procedurally, these regulations will remain in effect as of October 8 for 270 days, while the Division of Gaming Enforcement hopes to publish final regulations within 60 days.
With a focus on preventing underage gambling and protecting the security of mobile gaming, these new regulations will permit established and licensed casinos to enable mobile gambling on their property – ostensibly in every 'recreational' area, but not in parking lots and garages. The regulations also require providers of software and other technical means to exploit mobile gambling to obtain licences as gaming-related service providers.(2)
