Yogonet and other media report that David Rebuck, Director of the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, has written to operators urging them not to do business in Australia. The recently enacted law resulted in various online gaming companies exiting the Australian market.
New Jersey regulators now see Australia as a black market.
It's still unclear if this will have an impact on New Jersey's current environment, but it's important to stress that many New jersey-licensed companies serve Australia in some way.
In the letter, DGE Director David Rebuck also urges his state’s online gambling licensees to provide evidence of the steps they are taking to block Australians from their sites.
'Failure to do so,' Rebuck says, 'may result in the Division taking regulatory action against your company, including finding your company unsuitable for licensure in New Jersey.'
