A bill that would allow casino expansion to northern New Jersey cleared the Assembly Judiciary Committee this week, bringing it closer to the ballot.
It likely comes as no surprise that a survey commissioned by the AGA found that many Americans believe sports betting should be legalized in the U.S.
Though the online gambling sector is performing well in New Jersey, land-based is a different story. Borgata and Tropicana casinos have big plans anyway.
With the NJ casino expansion bill likely to see a vote, some expansion objectors believe the bill unfairly favors casino operators like MGM and Caesars.
Lead by strong revenue numbers from the Borgata and Caesars, NJ online casinos thrived in 2015 and had a record-setting month to close out the year.
The feud over which NJ casino expansion bill to support ended in compromise, but each house must still pass the new bill before it reaches the 2016 ballot.
