What is the minimum age to gamble online in NJ?

21 for a real-money account.

Go to an approved online gambling site and fill out your name, age, and other basic info. In order to play for real money, you will also have to complete a Know Your Customer check to validate your age and identity.

Where can I open my account from?

You can open a play-money account from anywhere in the US. In order to play for real money, you must physically be located inside New Jersey.

Any approved player can play for real money on these regulated sites while within the borders of New Jersey–tourists and residents alike. No one is permitted to play from outside the borders of New Jersey.

How do I deposit to my online gambling account?

Each of the available regulated sites offers an array of deposit options from credit card to bank wire to cash deposits at partner land casinos. Some credit card companies still do not allow gambling transactions, so don’t be surprised if that option is hit-or-miss. Check with your specific online gambling operator for details.

How do I cashout my winnings?

Cashouts also come with several options: check by mail, bank wire, and cash in casino. Cashouts usually require several days to be approved, then a few more business days to reach your mailbox or bank. Check with your specific online gambling operator for details.

Is my money safe?

Yes. New Jersey Law requires online gambling operators to segregate player funds from operating funds. This drastically increases the safety of keeping money in such online virtual accounts as it protects against some of the past horrors that occurred in unregulated markets.

What body regulates online gambling in NJ?

The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement and the New Jersey Casino Control Commission.
