A week from today, internet gambling will begin slowly in Atlantic City and casinos are looking for some online gamblers to test their systems.
Next Thursday, five of Atlantic City's casinos will begin a trial period to test their internet gaming systems.
A statewide rollout of online betting begins on November 26th.
Thursday those who want to be part of the soft launch were able to sign up at the comp machines inside of the Tropicana.
Steve Callender, the General Manager of Tropicana Casino Resort stated, "We're very excited about the opportunity to touch some new gamblers. Some of the people that don't come to atlantic city anymore but they live in nj but they're gambling outside the state so those folks are going to play online and gain rewards at all our properties in atlantic city and hopefully draw people back to the city."
The State Gaming Enforcement Division is also automatically extending the self exclusion list to cover internet gambling so people who have banned themselves from Atlantic City's Casinos will also be banned from betting online.
