New Jersey seeks private online gambling consultant

Officials in eastern American state are looking for ‘single source provider’ to vet all of its proposed iGaming regulations and practices.

Monday 29th April 2013

In the United States, the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (NJDGE) has announced that it intends to hire a private consultant to assist it with the testing, maintenance and implementation of its final online gambling regulations. Legislation signed into law in February saw New Jersey become the third state after Nevada and Delaware to legalise intra-state online gambling while the NJDGA was subsequently tasked with establishing and enforcing the new licensing guidelines. “The point is that while NJDGE did extensive research to determine how to draft Internet gaming rules, we require the services of an expert to examine whether we missed anything significant and whether the casino industry’s response to our rules is reasonable,” read a statement from the NFDGE. “The industry will request changes. The NJDGE needs an expert to properly access the gap between what we wrote and where we need to be on all of these policy choices which we made in drafting the rules. The NJDGE needs the expert to examine the gap between where we need to be and what the industry prefers so that we may adequately address their concerns. We need the consultant to prepare us to address the possible reactions of both the Internet gaming industry and gaming regulators from other jurisdictions. “There will be four phases of vendor consultation; preliminary phase, testing phase, implementation phase and maintenance phase.” The NJDGE stated that it wants a ‘single source provider’ that can handle all of the phases so intends to select only one candidate, who ‘must have extensive experience dealing with the regulated jurisdictions in the European Union’.
