TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – Sports betting is finally set to get off the ground when rules for New Jersey casinos to run fantasy leagues go into effect Monday.
Under the temporary regulations set to take effect, anyone taking part in the casino’s fantasy leagues will have to be at least 21 years old.
Casinos can partner with fantasy league operators to let them run the tournaments. The gaming halls can also take entry fees and pay out winnings at casino cages, according to the regulations.
“This is brand new, it’s a developing thing. We’re really focused as a regulatory and enforcement agency in making sure they’re done the right way to make sure they’re done with integrity and to make sure that only the appropriate people are involved,” New Jersey Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa told reporters including WCBS 880’s Levon Putney.
