Online casino and gambling experts, Jackpot247, have commented on surprising figures regarding who is engaging with New Jersey online gambling over land-based casinos.

A significant number of New Jersey residents who are participating in the state’s regulated online gambling live within an hour’s drive of the land-based casino hub of Atlantic City, a new report reveals. Three out of the five municipalities where people are logged into internet gambling sites the longest are within a short driving system of Atlantic City but, reportedly, this doesn’t mean that online gambling sites are taking business away from land-based casinos.

Seth Palansky, a spokesman for a leading online casino provider, said: "We're finding very similar patterns as other companies. The people online are people that haven't visited us in a while or are new players altogether. We're not seeing cannibalization."

Online gambling experts, Jackpot247, have spoken about these surprising results, commenting on the apparent lack of overlap for online casinos players and those visiting Atlantic City’s gambling establishments. A spokesperson for the company said:

“Not only is this fantastic news for the continuation of land-based casinos’ success alongside online gambling, but it also suggests that New Jersey’s decision to regulate the practice has actually enticed new players and expanded the world of internet gambling even further. The ease and convenience of online gambling sites like Jackpot247 have allowed many people who don’t have the time or the inclination to visit neighbouring casinos the chance to play their favourite games anyway, and the results of this study indicate that this is a trend that’s set to continue.”

Jackpot247 designs, creates and operates live roulette games broadcast on ITV and Sky channel 86, using casino certified equipment. With the best range of online casino games, the firm also provides live black jack online, roulette, poker, arcade games and Jackpot 247 casino slots available to play online and on mobile, with a view to providing an authentic casino experience to the home. The company encourages responsible gambling and only provides games manufactured to the highest standards to ensure customer satisfaction.
