Legal Gambling Age in New Jersey

Anyone under the age of 21 is prohibited from gambling by the Casino Control Act (N.J.S.A. 5:12-119).

Atlantic City casinos must exclude anyone under the legal drinking age, which is 21. The same applies to online casinos.

In the US, gambling is regulated to the same age restriction as drinking (21 and older) since both these activities require a high level of social and financial responsibility while not bringing any direct benefit to society. For instance, driving is considered to require a reasonable deal of responsibility but is also seen as a culturally significant phenomenon to the nation; therefore, the minimum legal driving age is set to 15 to 16 years, depending on the state.

The connection between alcohol consumption and gambling is rather significant. Brick and mortar casinos sell alcoholic beverages on the premises and sometimes serve drinks as a comp. Separating 18-something guests from 21+ ones might be more of a hassle than not serving anyone under the age of 21 altogether.

Atlantic City, however, had tried walking this fine line and allowed 18-20 y.o. gamblers in the facilities from 1978 to 1983. The experiment was quickly realized to be a failure since casinos had trouble proving they never served alcoholic beverages to anyone under the age of 21. Since then, the state’s legal gambling age has never been lower than the drinking age.

How It All Came Together – History of Online Gambling in NJ

Gambling in New Jersey has quite an eventful history. The state government has come a long way to bring online gambling to New Jersey’s playership, and it’s important to share the history with the state dwellers so that they understand the intricacies of the NJ iGaming market. Here’s a timeline from the 1970s when the first casinos got legalized in the state to the recent years when online betting became a thing in NJ.

1977

In 1976, the residents of Atlantic City voted in favor of casino gambling legalization, aiming to boost the economy. A year later, in 1977, the New Jersey Casino Control Act was passed, allowing casino gambling in Atlantic City. And still, it is the only city in the state where legal casinos can be found.

1978

It took around two years for the first casinos to be built in Atlantic City. On May 28, 1978, the Resorts International Casino, now known as Resort Casino Hotel, opened its doors. Soon after, Caesars and Bally’s were opened as well.

1990

The loudest casino project of the 1980s was the Taj Mahal, owned by former US President Donald Trump. Being the biggest land-based casino in the world at that time, Taj Mahal opened its doors on April 2, 1990, and boasted 120,000 square feet of gaming space. It took 13 years for another casino to unseat the Taj Mahal as the highest-grossing casino establishment.

2006

In 2006, New Jersey paved the way for regulated online gambling by passing the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA). Since then, banks were not allowed to process online gambling transactions. And several years later, New Jersey became one of the first states to legalize online gambling together with Delaware and Nevada.

2013

In February 2013, Bill A2578 was signed by NJ Governor Chris Christie to fully legalize and regulate online gambling in New Jersey. According to the bill, online casino operators could only get a license by partnering with a brick-and-mortar Atlantic City casino. Such a rule stimulated gamblers to visit the land-based venues to get special bonuses and thus worked in favor of the city’s economy. By the end of 2013, the first online casino in NJ started accepting players.

2018

In 2018, the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act was abolished (not without New Jersey’s help), giving way to sports betting legalization. In June of the same year, Assembly Bill 4111 was signed by Phil Murphy, the Governor. Since then, NJ racetracks and casinos have gotten the right to accept sports bets.

2020

The online gambling industry has been on the rise in recent years. In 2020, NJ gamblers wagered more than $6 billion on sports, outriding Nevada with its 2019’s $5.4 billion record. The reason for such a boost is mainly the legalization of online sports betting.
