Today New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced this week that he signed off on an agreement between his state and the states of Nevada and Delaware to allow for online player liquidity.
The compact will allow online punters in the three states to play poker against each other. The agreement between Nevada and Delaware has been in place since 2015 and the move is there to help boost the number of players across various websites.
Speaking about the agreement Christie said, "Pooling players with Nevada and Delaware will enhance annual revenue growth, attract new consumers, and create opportunities for players and internet gaming operators. This agreement marks the beginning of a new and exciting chapter for online gaming, and we look forward to working with our partners in Nevada and Delaware in this endeavor."
New Jersey has the most robust online betting market in the country, as revenues have topped $20 million for seven straight months. Of that, online poker contributes only about 10%, and its hoped that the compact boosts those numbers.
