New Jersey Okays Skill Games

This story was published more than 6 years ago.

This week the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement released new regulations to deal with skill-based games for its Atlantic City Casinos.

The new regulations will cover the percentage of bets collected by casinos, and also cover the prohibition of casinos changing difficulty while the game is in progress. There have also been measures instituted to prevent player collusion or money laundering.

Commenting on the new regulations New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement Director David Rebuck said, "This is another important step towards implementing skill-based gaming in the Atlantic City gaming market."

"Although the Division has had the authority to authorise these games for some time and announced in October 2014 an initiative for manufacturers to bring their skill-based games to New Jersey, the industry requested specific regulations to guide their efforts to create innovative skill-based products."

Skill based games have not been deployed throughout the United States as of yet, but the market is a key focus for casinos, as younger generations of players look to find something that mixes in with their tastes in video games.
