ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) – New Jersey gambling regulators have given six casinos permission to begin immediate statewide Internet gambling but say the Golden Nugget still has work to do before it can join them.

State Gaming Enforcement director David Rebuck said Monday six of the seven casinos issued Internet gambling permits could begin offering round-the-clock online gambling effective immediately.
The only other states with online gambling are Nevada and Delaware.
New Jersey began a five-day trial period of online gambling last Thursday. The purpose was to test the complex technology involved in the games and determine whether the systems are ready for the entire state to log on and play.
During the test period, many users were locked out by geolocation software that wrongly determined they weren’t within New Jersey’s borders.
