Ifrah Law Applauds Passage of New Jersey’s iGaming Legislation

 

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 26, 2013

Ifrah Law PLLC, a Washington, D.C.-based law firm focused on complex civil and criminal litigation, applauds the passage of New Jersey’s online or “igaming” legislation making it the third state in the U.S. to legalize intra-state online gaming. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed S-490 today with the goal of revitalizing Atlantic City’s tourism and gaming industries.

 

“The law provides a mechanism to expand igaming beyond New Jersey borders, to residents of other states or even foreign countries where such gaming is permitted by law,” said Jeff Ifrah, founding partner of Ifrah Law. “This is truly a groundbreaking opportunity for gaming operators to get a share of the igaming market in the US and beyond.”

 

New Jersey’s igaming legislation requires that online gaming be offered only through brick and mortar casinos in Atlantic City, which may either offer online gaming independently or in partnership with an igaming vendor. Casinos or their affiliates are allowed to offer the same games that are currently offered on Atlantic City casino gaming floors. All players must be physically located in New Jersey.

 

Ifrah Law represents many of the largest igaming companies and industry associations in the world. The firm’s clients include the online poker sites Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars and the Interactive Gaming Council, a non-profit organization representing the interests of igaming companies around the globe.

 

Additional information on the passage of New Jersey’s igaming legislation is available at Crime In the Suites, a blog of Ifrah Law, in the publication “The Path to the U.S. iGaming Market” on the firm’s website, and in this video.
