Atlantic City Casinos Welcome Internet Gambling

New Jersey recently became only the third state in the country to permit gambling online. Legislation allows casinos operating in Atlantic City to offer games of chance online to gamblers within the state's borders. This marks the biggest expansion of gambling since Atlantic City welcomed gaming into the seaside resort in 1978. Written into the law is a 15% tax on the casinos' online winnings as well as rules to stem compulsive gambling. Seven Atlantic City casinos are currently approved by state regulators for online gaming.
