Online betting is any type of betting conducted via the internet. This includes sports betting, casinos and virtual poker. In 1994, the first online betting venue ever opened to the public, was Ticketworld for the then newly Launched World Series Of Poker in Las Vegas. Ever since then, there have been online betting venues opened all over the world, with the latest coming in the form of sportsbooks.
The growth of online betting has come at a great time for people residing in the New Jersey area. With the growth of Jersey gambling tables comes the growth of online betting sites in New Jersey. The number of online betting sites has dramatically risen in the last few years. While many people still do not realize that it is legal to bet online in New Jersey, it is widely accepted and it is considered a completely legitimate form of gambling. Many people who are not residents of New Jersey and place bets on New Jersey sports teams, or other sporting events, are doing so in their home state, where there is no problem with gambling as long as you are not under the influence of alcohol.
