Caesars, Caesars subsidiary, Bally's OK'd for Web gambling in New Jersey


ATLANTIC CITY — New Jersey has approved two additional casinos to conduct Internet gambling, bringing the total to seven so far.

The state Casino Control Commission on Wednesday granted a casino license to Caesars Interactive, a subsidiary of Caesars Entertainment.

Right after, the state Division of Gaming Enforcement granted Internet gambling permits to Caesars and Bally’s.

Caesars Entertainment is the world’s largest casino company and owns four casinos in Atlantic City: Caesars, Harrah’s, Bally’s and the Showboat.

The company was eligible for permits for all four casinos, but only applied for two.

The permits will allow the casinos to join a five-day test period of Internet gambling that begins Thursday night.

If all goes well with the trial, Internet gambling will begin statewide on Tuesday.
