The Division of Gaming Enforcement in New Jersey has approved Internet gambling permits for the Golden Nugget, Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort and Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino. The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa scored the state's first Internet gambling permit earlier this month.
"All players that desire to gamble online deserve a fair and trustworthy experience," said Golden Nugget vice president and general manager Tom Pohlman. "Rest assured, that is our customer commitment, and unlike others, we have an Atlantic City land-based casino to stand behind our online brand."
