The Division of Gaming Enforcement in New Jersey just released the online betting guidelines for their state. This allows for operators and players to know what they can and cannot do. Some of the guidelines placed into this new document include:
– Once the player’s account balances reaches zero the operator must end the bonus promo. This will allow for the wagering requirements to return to normal.
– The Operator can choose if the customer’s first bet comes from their deposit or the bonus.
– Players have the option to abandon their bonus halfway through it and cash out any money they have in their player account.
– Operators may set a limit on how much a player can win during a bonus.
– Operators who wish to offer promotions to their players must demonstrate to the regulator that the bonus can bring in revenue for the operator.
– None of the online gambling restrictions apply to the operator if the promotion is associated to their land based casinos.
In other New Jersey gambling news the Spokeswoman at NJDGE announced that players who want to play the soft launch on November 21st would be limited to only eight hours of gameplay on both days (21st-22nd). This is so that the casinos don’t overload with players, crash and then have to go through the repairs for full launch which is set a week after the 22nd.
