According to iGaming Business, patrons at casino properties in Atlantic City will soon be able to place wagers using mobile devices after New Jersey governor Chris Christie signed new legislation on Wednesday.

The new gaming bill will allow casinos and adjoining hotels in Atlantic City to offer electronic versions of authorised games of chance. Mobile gaming devices will also be authorized to take bets on sporting events, should the casino have an established sports book operation under New Jersey’s sports wagering law. The prepay devices, which will be owned by the casinos, will enable customers to wager throughout the casino and hotel in restaurants, lounges, even sitting by the hotel swimming pool. The devices will not work outside the casino or hotel.
“We’ve already seen handheld, mobile gaming devices being successfully implemented at facilities in Las Vegas, and now these gaming devices will be coming soon to casinos in Atlantic City,” said bill sponsor, Senator Jim Whelan. “By keeping pace with new technology and new advances in gaming, we can make sure that Atlantic City is on a level competitive field with our main competitor to the West.”
“With the Jersey Shore as a backdrop, Atlantic City has a leg up on its competitors in Las Vegas and around the country, and I believe that mobile gaming devices could create a significant new revenue stream for our casinos.” Whelan added.
“This new law contains the appropriate safeguards to prohibit underage gambling, and to ensure that mobile gaming devices will be governed by the same rules and regulations as any other authorized game of chance. But as part of a larger effort to keep our casinos competitive, mobile gaming devices will be a welcomed new addition to casino wagering in the Garden State.”
