ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – New Jersey gambling regulators have approved a California Indian tribe’s request to offer Internet gambling in conjunction with Atlantic City’s top casino.
The Pala will be the first Indian tribe to engage in online gambling in New Jersey.
The Pala Band of Mission Indians will utilize one of the Borgata’s online gambling licenses. Their CEO, Jim Ryan, used to run the bwin.party online gambling company.
Pala, like other New Jersey Internet gambling providers, can only take bets from customers located within New Jersey’s borders.
The Pala site should be active within two weeks, but will be separate from the Borgata and party poker brands that the Borgata already offers.
