Huge Benefits for New Jersey if Online Wagering Supported

Published Wednesday, March 02, 2011 -

A cloud of mystery surrounds the reasoning behind why the governor of New Jersey Mr. Chris Christie has not signed the Bill that has been passed by all other authorities legalizing online gambling within the borders of New Jersey. March 3rd marks the deadline for some sort of action on the proposed legislation.
The various options before the governor are simple. The Governor could outright veto the proposition or he could ask for changes to be made in the Bill by the Senate and the Legislative Assembly by requesting a conditional veto. He could do nothing in which case the online gambling Bill will become law, or he could simply approve the Bill.

Governor Chris Christie moved forward recently with his commitment to making horse racing in New Jersey a self-sustaining industry by signing legislation to expedite the establishment of off-track wagering facilities in New Jersey.
This effort alone will not get the State’s financial picture in order nor will it help the ailing land based gambling operations in Atlantic City see a better future.

The beneficial impact of legalizing online wagering will have on investment and employment in the state is well documented and supported.
Business Development Director of Cable & Wireless on the Channel Island of Guernsey, Justin Bellinger, commented, “The fast paced and extremely high-tech nature of the i-gaming industry is a boon to any economy. The complex technology required to support these operations requires an expansive and skilled workforce dedicated to supporting the operation 24/7. Specialist hosting facilities, information security skills and network operations centres overlay the underlying foundations of large, stable internet and power links.”
Bellinger, continued to explain, “There isn't a more demanding proving ground for e-commerce activities than the gaming industry; in the jurisdictions that I have worked in this has led to many opportunities outside the gaming sector that simply were not available before the hosting, bandwidth and skills required to support the gaming industry were developed.”
