New Jersey Announces More Stringent Casino Regulations

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has made it a point to throw his hat into the gambling ring in the state. Christie has been front and center on several gambling issues, most notably his veto of an online gambling bill earlier this year.

The governor has also made sure that the gaming industry in Atlantic City is held to a higher standard than it has been over the past couple of decades. The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement came out on Monday with the final few rules in the overhaul of the AC casino industry.

Among the notable changes that will be taking affect will be a stricter enforcement of how the technology within a slot machine is regulated. One of the main goals was to slow the cheating that has occurred in recent years, and the state has created rules that will protect not only the house, but also the gamblers.

"Our focus was, and continues to be, on streamlining regulation while maintaining public confidence and trust in the integrity of the regulatory process and casino operations," said David Rebuck, Director of the Division of Gaming Enforcement.

While many of the regulations make compliance tougher for casinos, the regulations may prove to be a blessing for the gaming establishments. Christie is working hard to bring customers back to New Jersey casinos, and one way he intends to expedite that process is to bring trust back to the city.

Pennsylvania has become the hot spot in the Northeast for gamblers in recent years. Last year, Pennsylvania lawmakers legalized table games. In the second half of 2010, Pennsylvania showed how much the table games would change the face of the gaming industry on the East Coast.Analysts predict that by the end of 2012, Pennsylvania casinos will be generating more revenue than their New Jersey counterparts.

Christie had the opportunity to swing the odds back in his state's favor this past spring when he was sent a bill that would have regulated online casinos. Christie was pressured at the time by his Conservative base, and he vetoed the legislation. Senator Raymond Lesniak has revamped the bill, and is again pushing it through the state Legislature.
