MYFOXNY.COM/AP - New Jersey gambling regulators have given six casinos and their software partners permission to begin immediate statewide Internet gambling but say the Golden Nugget still has work to do before it can join them.

Borgata and bwin.party; Bally's and 888 Holdings; Caesars and Amaya; Tropicana and GameSys; Trump Plaza and Betfair; and Trump Taj Mahal and Ultimate Gaming.

State Gaming Enforcement director David Rebuck said Monday six of the seven casinos issued Internet gambling permits could begin offering round-the-clock online gambling effective immediately.

The only other states with online gambling are Nevada and Delaware.

New Jersey began a five-day trial period of online gambling last Thursday. The purpose was to test the complex technology involved in the games and determine whether the systems are ready for the entire state to log on and play.

During the test period, many users were locked out by geolocation software that wrongly determined they weren't within New Jersey's borders.

    Ghosts of Sandy still visible in Ortley Beach

    It's nearly two years since Superstorm Sandy blasted into Ortley Beach and decimated this small section of Toms River. And the storm-slammed empty houses on some streets and trailers on lots are painful reminders that Ortley Beach was dubbed “ground zero” by some after the Oct. 29, 2012 storm devastated the Jersey coast. A number of Ortley Beach residents attended the Aug. 26 Township Council meeting to ask what, if anything, can be done to speed things up.
