The state of New Jersey paved the way for legal online gambling for people located within NJ by passing their Internet gaming regulations effective October 21, 2013. While the last couple of years might not have been the cash rocket the state was hoping to have seen with the birth of legal online casino gaming, what has developed is the land based casinos’ understanding of what players are looking to play through mobile devices and home pcs.
There is no doubt that the steaks for the crown of real money internet gambling are high and the competition is fierce, even if the slow start in New Jersey was not what the media and even industry insiders had hoped/hyped. When looked at objectively however, one sees that a slow rolling start was naturally in order with what would expect when starting any new business venture. When a company is new, it must develop its product and then find and nourish a loyal customer base. This is the same case with the online casinos which appear to be down on their luck in states like New Jersey and Nevada. However, as a business establishes itself with is customer base its income and quarterly reports also ride along with the improved products, brand awareness and loyalty. Not only are the New Jersey Casinos establishing themselves, they are also faced with a huge barrier to entry, which is the missing 48 states, otherwise known as federal regulation of legal casino gambling online.
