    Legalization of online gambling in NJ and PA

  • Pennsylvania Gaming Act Amend Includes Online Gambling
    Legal

    The issue of legal internet wagering in the USA just keeps getting more interesting as Nevada puts online poker on the map in that state. As the process becomes solidified there are other US jurisdictions such as Pennsylvania that are developing their own online gambling legislation.

    While New Jersey still awaits the approval of internet betting on everything including sporting events there are those politicians in Pennsylvania that want to amend the current Pennsylvania Gaming Act. New Jersey is going through the legal process with a battle shaping up with the Department of Justice regarding the constitutionality of the New Jersey proposal. The official word so far regarding the fight indicated it is on and will cost the government of New Jersey to defend the legislation. Governor Chris Christie vetoed the bill a few years ago much to the consternation of politicians who approved the bill for Christie’s consideration.

    Pennsylvanian representative Tina Davis recently released a memorandum stating her intention for an amended Gaming Act that would allow for internet betting. Davis points out that Delaware and New Jersey, both bordering states, have taken action on the issue of online gambling and the state of Pennsylvania must adjust. Davis presented the memorandum announcement on the Pennsylvania House of Representatives web page. The proposed also revealed Davis’s reasoning for the call for amendments saying, “A responsible internet gaming system must be created in order to protect Pennsylvanians and the success of the established gaming industry in the Commonwealth, which has generated more than $7 billion in state tax revenue, and created more than 16,000 jobs statewide.” The memorandum continued, “the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board would regulate requirements for the licensing, operation of, and responsible participation in internet gaming to ensure that this form of gaming is within the regulatory framework we have fought to establish here in Pennsylvania.”

    2. Section 6 of P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-6) is amended to read as follows:
    6. "Casino" or "casino room" or "licensed casino" -- One or more locations or rooms in a casino hotel facility that have been approved by the division for the conduct of casino gaming in accordance with the provisions of this act, including any part of the facility where Internet wagering is conducted. "Casino" or "casino room" or "licensed casino" shall not include any casino simulcasting facility authorized pursuant to the "Casino Simulcasting Act," P.L.1992, c.19 (C.5:12-191 et seq.).
    (cf: P.L.2011, c.19, s.6)

    3. (New section) “Internet wagering" means the placing of wagers with a casino licensee at a casino located in Atlantic City using a computer network of both federal and non-federal interoperable packet switched data networks through which the

    4. (New section) “Internet wagering gross revenue” means the total of all sums actually received by a casino licensee from Internet wagering operations, less only the total of all sums actually paid out as winnings to patrons; provided, however, that the cash equivalent value of any merchandise or thing of value included in a jackpot or payout shall not be included in the total of all sums paid out as winnings to players for purposes of determining Internet wagering gross revenue.

    5. Section 3 of P.L.1987, c.353 (C.5:12-43.1) is amended to read as follows:
    3. "Restricted Casino Areas"--The cashier's cage, the soft count room, the hard count room, the slot cage booths and runway areas, the interior of table game pits, the surveillance room and catwalk areas, the slot machine repair room, any room or area related to Internet wagering operations and any other area specifically designated by the division as restricted in a licensee's operation certificate.
    (cf: P.L.2011, c.19, s.21)

    6. Section 100 of P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-100) is amended to read as follows:
    100. a. This act shall not be construed to permit any gaming except the conduct of authorized games in a casino room or through Internet wagering in accordance with this act and the regulations promulgated hereunder and in a simulcasting facility to the extent provided by the "Casino Simulcasting Act," P.L.1992, c.19 (C.5:12-191 et al.). Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the division approves the game of keno as an authorized game pursuant to section 5 of P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-5), as amended, keno tickets may be sold or redeemed in accordance with division regulations.
    b. Gaming equipment shall not be possessed, maintained or exhibited by any person on the premises of a casino hotel except in a casino room, in the simulcasting facility, or in restricted casino areas used for the inspection, repair or storage of such equipment and specifically designated for that purpose by the casino licensee with the approval of the division. Gaming equipment which supports the conduct of gaming in a casino or simulcasting facility or through Internet wagering but does not permit or require patron access, such as computers, or gaming software or other gaming equipment used to conduct Internet wagering may be possessed and maintained by a casino licensee or a qualified holding or intermediary company of a casino licensee in restricted areas specifically approved by the division. No gaming equipment shall be possessed, maintained, exhibited, brought into or removed from a casino room or simulcasting facility by any person unless such equipment is necessary to the conduct of an authorized game, has permanently affixed, imprinted, impressed or engraved thereon an identification number or symbol authorized by the division, is under the exclusive control of a casino licensee or casino licensee's employees, or of any individually qualified employee of a holding company or casino licensee and is brought into or removed from the casino room or simulcasting facility following 24-hour prior notice given to an authorized agent of the division.
    Notwithstanding any other provision of this section, computer equipment used by the slot system operator of a multi-casino progressive slot system to link and communicate with the slot machines of two or more casino licensees for the purpose of calculating and displaying the amount of a progressive jackpot, monitoring the operation of the system, and any other purpose that the division deems necessary and appropriate to the operation or maintenance of the multi-casino progressive slot machine system may, with the prior approval of the division, be possessed, maintained and operated by the slot system operator either in a restricted area on the premises of a casino hotel or in a secure facility inaccessible to the public and specifically designed for that purpose off the premises of a casino hotel but within the territorial limits of Atlantic County, New Jersey.
    Notwithstanding the foregoing, a person may, with the prior approval of the division and under such terms and conditions as may be required by the division, possess, maintain or exhibit gaming equipment in any other area of the casino hotel, provided that such equipment is used for nongaming purposes.
    c. Each casino hotel shall contain a count room and such other secure facilities as may be required by the division for the counting and storage of cash, coins, tokens, checks, plaques, gaming vouchers, coupons, and other devices or items of value used in wagering and approved by the division that are received in the conduct of gaming and for the inspection, counting and storage of dice, cards, chips and other representatives of value. The division shall promulgate regulations for the security of drop boxes and other devices in which the foregoing items are deposited at the gaming tables or in slot machines, and all areas wherein such boxes and devices are kept while in use, which regulations may include certain locking devices. Said drop boxes and other devices shall not be brought into or removed from a casino room or simulcasting facility, or locked or unlocked, except at such times, in such places, and according to such procedures as the division may require.
    d. All chips used in gaming shall be of such size and uniform color by denomination as the division shall require by regulation.
    e. All gaming shall be conducted according to rules promulgated by the division. All wagers and pay-offs of winning wagers shall be made according to rules promulgated by the division, which shall establish such limitations as may be necessary to assure the vitality of casino operations and fair odds to patrons. Each slot machine shall have a minimum payout of 83%.
    f. Each casino licensee shall make available in printed form to any patron upon request the complete text of the rules of the division regarding games and the conduct of gaming, pay-offs of winning wagers, an approximation of the odds of winning for each wager, and such other advice to the player as the division shall require. Each casino licensee shall prominently post within a casino room and simulcasting facility, as appropriate, according to regulations of the division such information about gaming rules, pay-offs of winning wagers, the odds of winning for each wager, and such other advice to the player as the division shall require.
    g. Each gaming table shall be equipped with a sign indicating the permissible minimum and maximum wagers pertaining thereto. Each game offered through Internet wagering shall display online the permissible minimum and maximum wagers pertaining thereto. It shall be unlawful for a casino licensee to require any wager to be greater than the stated minimum or less than the stated maximum; provided, however, that any wager actually made by a patron and not rejected by a casino licensee prior to the commencement of play shall be treated as a valid wager.
    h. (1) Except as herein provided, no slot machine shall be used to conduct gaming unless it is identical in all electrical, mechanical and other aspects to a model thereof which has been specifically tested and licensed for use by the division. The division shall also test any other gaming device, gaming equipment, gaming-related device or gross-revenue related device, such as a slot management system, electronic transfer credit system or gaming voucher system as it deems appropriate. In its discretion and for the purpose of expediting the approval process, the division may utilize the services of a private testing laboratory that has obtained a plenary license as a casino service industry enterprise pursuant to subsection a. of section 92 of P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-92) to perform the testing, and may also utilize applicable data from any such private testing laboratory or from a governmental agency of a state other than New Jersey authorized to regulate slot machines and other gaming devices, gaming equipment, gaming-related devices and gross-revenue related devices used in casino gaming, if the private testing laboratory or governmental agency uses a testing methodology substantially similar to the methodology utilized by the division. The division, in its discretion, may rely upon the data provided by the private testing laboratory or governmental agency and adopt the conclusions of such private testing laboratory or governmental agency regarding any submitted device.
    (2) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (5) of subsection h. of this section, the division shall, within 60 days of its receipt of a complete application for the testing of a slot machine or other gaming equipment model, approve or reject the slot machine or other gaming equipment model. In so doing, the division shall specify whether and to what extent any data from a private testing laboratory or governmental agency of a state other than New Jersey was used in reaching its conclusions and recommendation. If the division is unable to complete the testing of a slot machine or other gaming equipment model within this 60-day period, the division may conditionally approve the slot machine or other gaming equipment model for test use by a casino licensee provided that the division represents that the use of the slot machine or other gaming equipment model will not have a direct and materially adverse impact on the integrity of gaming or the control of gross revenue. The division shall give priority to the testing of slot machines or other gaming equipment which a casino licensee has certified it will use in its casino in this State.
    (3) The division shall, by regulation, establish such technical standards for licensure of slot machines, including mechanical and electrical reliability, security against tampering, the comprehensibility of wagering, and noise and light levels, as it may deem necessary to protect the player from fraud or deception and to insure the integrity of gaming. The denominations of such machines shall be set by the licensee; the licensee shall simultaneously notify the division of the settings.
    (4) The division shall, by regulation, determine the permissible number and density of slot machines in a licensed casino so as to:
    (a) promote optimum security for casino operations;
    (b) avoid deception or frequent distraction to players at gaming tables;
    (c) promote the comfort of patrons;
    (d) create and maintain a gracious playing environment in the casino; and
    (e) encourage and preserve competition in casino operations by assuring that a variety of gaming opportunities is offered to the public.
    Any such regulation promulgated by the division which determines the permissible number and density of slot machines in a licensed casino shall provide that all casino floor space and all space within a casino licensee's casino simulcasting facility shall be included in any calculation of the permissible number and density of slot machines in a licensed casino.
    (5) Any new gaming equipment or simulcast wagering equipment that is submitted for testing to the division or to an independent testing laboratory licensed pursuant to subsection a. of section 92 of P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-92) prior to or simultaneously with submission of such new equipment for testing in a jurisdiction other than New Jersey, may, consistent with regulations promulgated by the division, be deployed by a casino licensee on the casino floor 14 days after submission of such equipment for testing. If the casino or casino service industry enterprise licensee has not received approval for the equipment 14 days after submission for testing, any interested casino licensee may, consistent with division regulations, deploy the equipment on a field test basis, unless otherwise directed by the director.
    (6) All equipment used by a licensee to conduct Internet wagering, including but not limited to computers, servers, monitoring rooms, and hubs, shall be located, with the prior approval of the division, either in a restricted area on the premises of the casino hotel or in a secure facility inaccessible to the public and specifically designed for that purpose off the premises of a casino hotel but within the territorial limits of Atlantic City, New Jersey. All Internet wagers shall be deemed to be placed when received in Atlantic City by the licensee. Any intermediate routing of electronic data in connection with a wager shall not affect the fact that the wager is placed in Atlantic City.
    No software, computer or other gaming equipment shall be used to conduct Internet wagering unless it has been specifically tested by the division. The division may, in its discretion, and for the purpose of expediting the approval process, refer testing to any testing laboratory with a plenary license as a casino service industry enterprise pursuant to subsection a. of section 92 of P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-92). The division shall give priority to the testing of software, computers or other gaming equipment which a casino licensee has certified it will use to conduct Internet wagering in this State. The division shall, by regulation, establish such technical standards for approval of software, computers and other gaming equipment used to conduct Internet wagering, including mechanical, electrical or program reliability, security against tampering, the comprehensibility of wagering, and noise and light levels, as it may deem necessary to protect the player from fraud or deception and to insure the integrity of gaming. When appropriate, the licensee shall set the denominations of Internet games and shall simultaneously notify the commission of the settings.
    No software, computer or other gaming equipment shall be used to conduct Internet wagering unless it is able to verify that a player placing a wager is physically present in this State at the time that the wager is placed. The division shall confirm on a continuous basis that the equipment used by every licensee to conduct Internet wagering is, in fact, verifying every player’s physical presence in this State each time a wager is placed.
    i. (Deleted by amendment, P.L.1991, c.182).
    j. (Deleted by amendment, P.L.1991, c.182).

    (3) The prohibition against wagering set forth in paragraphs (1) and (2) of this subsection shall continue for a period of 30 days commencing upon the date that the employee either leaves employment with a casino licensee or is terminated from employment with a casino licensee.
    o. (1) It shall be unlawful for any casino key employee or boxman, floorman, or any other casino employee who shall serve in a supervisory position to solicit or accept, and for any other casino employee to solicit, any tip or gratuity from any player or patron at the casino hotel or simulcasting facility where he is employed.
    (2) A dealer may accept tips or gratuities from a patron at the table at which such dealer is conducting play, subject to the provisions of this subsection. All such tips or gratuities shall be immediately deposited in a lockbox reserved for that purpose, unless the tip or gratuity is authorized by a patron utilizing an automated wagering system approved by the division. All tips or gratuities shall be accounted for, and placed in a pool for distribution pro rata among the dealers, with the distribution based upon the number of hours each dealer has worked, except that the division may, by regulation, permit a separate pool to be established for dealers in the game of poker, or may permit tips or gratuities to be retained by individual dealers in the game of poker.
    (3) Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (1) of this subsection, a casino licensee may require that a percentage of the prize pool offered to participants pursuant to an authorized poker tournament be withheld for distribution to the tournament dealers as tips or gratuities as the division by regulation may approve.
    p. Any slot system operator that offers an annuity jackpot shall secure the payment of such jackpot by establishing an annuity jackpot guarantee in accordance with the requirements of P.L.1977, c.110 (C.5:12-1 et seq.), and the rules of the division.

  • ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey lawmakers plan to move quickly to adopt an Internet gambling bill now that Gov. Chris Christie has laid his cards on the table.
    After years of ambivalence about online betting, Christie last week vetoed New Jersey's second attempt at legalizing it. But the governor said he would sign a bill that made changes like a 10-year trial period and higher taxes on the casinos' online winnings.
    Leaders of the state Senate and Assembly say they will vote Feb. 26 on Christie's recommendations.
    New Jersey would become the third state in the nation, after Nevada and Delaware, to legalize Internet gambling.
