    Good News!

    The New Jersey state Assembly has passed a bill that would legalize Internet gambling.

    The lawmakers agreed Tuesday to changes demanded by Gov. Chris Christie, who could sign it by day's end. The bill now goes to the state Senate, which has also promised to approve it.

    The changes include a 10-year trial period and higher taxes on casinos' online winnings.

    Patrons would set up online accounts with one or more Atlantic City casinos, which would use special software to verify a player's age. Once the program is operational, which could take six months to a year, gamblers could play any game now offered in Atlantic City casinos, including electronic versions of slots and table games.

    Online poker is expected to be big.
