Governor Chris Christie must decide whether or not to accept a bill permitting virtual gaming in the state.
The bill, which was received in December and would allow Atlantic City casinos to offer games online, now rests on Christie's verdict.
At present no decision has been made, but there are four scenarios that could happen: Christie lets the deadline pass and the bill becomes law, he rejects the bill, he offers a conditional rejection, or he accepts it.
If successful, the bill will allow operators to set-up servers in Atlantic City and accept wagers from players in the state of New Jersey. At the time of writing, there are strong rumours that Christie has issued a conditional veto of the bill.

Bwin shareholders must be ecstatic this morning. This is great news for the poker community as well. Hopefully the start of the return of online poker to the U.S.

Oh boy, those aren't the best news for New Jersey players who would like to develop their activity online, but there's always a hope. I have family there, just like many portuguese, i don't know if they like or use to play online games, but we are talking about an activity that is free in other places of the world and which isn't available in some USA states... I'm more used to hear about things exactly on the opposite way! Strange!

Well at least there's cpmunication going back and forth about this in the USA. IMO the worst thing they did was what happend during the BF time, when they just cancelled everything.

Anyhow, we also keep track of this topic on our national forum and I heard that Christie refused the proposition (conditional veto), meaning that there have to be some amandents (dont know if spelled corrrectly) added/ changed, before the bill can be passed on.

Supposedly the governor doesn't agree with tax % and that really is only thing bohering him. They wanna put a tax on online companies for abt. 15% of the profit. Could result in bigger rake overall, which would then include the rest of the world, too.
Unless they make platform and all that....

I wonder if this new US law for online gambling will allow US players to play also with players from another states like Europe?

Still, a way or another this have to be a great news for all US poker players Smile

Little and patient steps at a time are the way forward. will be interesting to see some comments and observations from US players to see how they feel about this, as it is so far removed from Europe.
