NJ to start Internet gambling Nov. 26

Internet gambling will begin in New Jersey on Nov. 26, after a five-day trial period to make sure things work properly.

The state Gaming Enforcement Division tells The Associated Press that Atlantic City's 12 casinos may begin a so-called soft play period on Nov. 21 for invited guests.

If all goes well, the casinos can begin full Internet gambling at 9 a.m. EDT on Nov. 26.

Gamblers would have to be physically located within New Jersey's boundaries in order to play.

New Jersey will be the third state in the nation to offer , along with Nevada and Delaware.
