Atlantic City Hard Rock casino launches online betting

Atlantic City’s new Hard Rock casino resort has started taking bets online days after opening its doors on the boardwalk.

The casino went live with its internet gambling operation less than a week after opening its newest casino, The Associated Press reports from New Jersey.

Division of Gaming Enforcement Director David Rebuck said all of the casino’s devices passed the commission’s technical standards and equipment requirements.

“We’re excited to extend the Hard Rock brand beyond the Boardwalk and let casino players (play) across the Garden State," Matt Harkness, Hard Rock’s Atlantic City president, told AP.

Ocean Resort Casino, which also opened in Atlantic City last week, is testing internet gambling and hopes to offer online wagering as well. 

Six casino licensees run internet gambling in New Jersey: Borgata, Golden Nugget, Hard Rock, Resorts and Tropicana, and Caesars Interactive-NJ, which includes Caesars and Harrah’s.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed sports betting into law in June after PASPA was repealed by the Supreme Court. Internet gambling was approved in New Jersey by an amendment to the Casino Control Act in 2013, according to Thomson Reuters. Lawmakers approved the bill to help restore the states struggling casino market.
