I think you have to be physically in the state in order to place the bets. If the servers are in NJ and so are you, your network traffic doesn't (or shouldn't) cross state lines, so the feds have no nexus. All of the initial domestic remote gambling implementations use geofencing, to my knowledge.

If anyone is going to be in AC soon, let us know?

From the news article.
"Each casino is allowed up to 500 players during the testing, known as soft-play. The state wants the casinos to reach those limits so the websites can “push the limits” and be sure they’re ready."

It isn't clear in the article if the test is limited to only 500 gamblers or 500 gamblers at a time."

I have an e-mail invite from one of the casinos and I will find out tonight.

You have to be a NJ resident to gamble on line. What a nonsense. Somehow NJ people don't contribute to NY economy. I did, for the past 30 years in fact.

You do not have to be a NJ resident.

You do have to be in NJ to gamble on-line.

I tried to register with a casino and I wasn't able to do it.

I entered all my personal information and made a credit card deposit. The final step was to enter your cell phone number. I got an error message that said my cell phone could not be registered. I got in touch with their help line and I was told that they were having problems with their GPS software. The software is used to locate your cell phone to determine if you are in NJ.

I called a friend and he said that he is having the same problem with a different casino.

Any bets as to which web-site gets fixed first, Obamacare or the casino. They must be using the same tech people!!!!!

Sounds like a built-in loophole, by only having to have your cell phone within NJ borders. I can pay $20 a month for a extra cell phone. All I need is someone that lives in NJ keep it charged and on for me.

This will not work. You need to have an IP address in NJ and be located through an identifiable wi-fi connection.
