New Jersey: An interstate poker compact is not imminent
Online poker market in the US is now in a bad way; the solution to which may come from a liquidity sharing agreement as some suggest. E-poker players in New Jersey are eagerly waiting for the possibility of a larger players pool thanks to a poker compact with other states where online poker is regulated. However, things are not going that way, regarding the comments shared by the Director of the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, David Rebuck. The latter outlined that a liquidity sharing agreement with other states such as Delaware and Nevada_ the two other states alongside New Jersey to have a regulated online poker market in the US_ is not yet on the horizon. Despite all this, certainty is that the authority is aware of the importance of the deal, but such alliance is not a priority in New Jersey, at least for the moment, Rebuck said.
In the past, New Jersey had already considered a poker compact with Nevada, but no progress has been noted. Interestingly, such a deal would raise the Garden States poker pool by 30%. Recall that Nevada and Delaware have recently signed for an integration of their poker communities. The said agreement will allow players from both states to gamble on any regulated online poker room based in New Jersey or Delaware. In the meantime, New Jersey is also considering a compact with the United Kingdom, the feasibility of which is said to be relatively complicated.
