Survey: Online Gambling Is Not A Threat To New Jersey Land Casinos

A survey that was commissioned by the Lloyd D. Levenson Institute of Gaming, Hospitality and Tourism at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey reveals that the state's online gambling market is not a threat to land casinos as most players have not gambled online yet.

The survey revealed that less than 3% of gamblers in the state said that they have gambled online since the act was legalized in November, while just 7% said they would gamble online this year.

The survey consisted of 690 people who actually visited Atlantic City casinos and gambled within the past year.

Commenting on the poll's results Levenson Institute Director Israel Posner said, “Interest in online gambling is growing and should continue to grow once marketing efforts and promotions take off."

In related news, the same poll also took account of the state's sportsbetting challenge, which is currently sitting before the Supreme Court. The survey revealed that 55% of the gamblers support legal sportsbetting, while 1 in 5 said that they would like to bet on sports legally.
