Delaware authorities, Nevada, and New Jersey have approved the laws that will regulate online poker activities. Nevada and Delaware have decided to share liquidity for almost all poker games.
The Global Gaming Business (GGB) announced that the United Kingdom and the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (NJDGE) had approved the fact that the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) would share liquidity.
First of all, the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement informed operators from New Jersey and the United Kingdom about the principles of sharing liquidity.
Brian Sandoval, Governor of Nevada, reported that he was willing to sign an agreement concerning sharing liquidity with New Jersey.
David Rebuck, Director of the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (NJDGE), announced that New Jersey wanted to cooperate with the United Kingdom. It is explained by a very simple fact. The British market includes 65 million potential customers. This number is much higher compared to the 4 million of population available in Nevada and Delaware.
That is why the United Kingdom is the priority for New Jersey, whose population is currently reaching 9 million citizens. Entering the British gambling market, gaming operators from New Jersey will be able to significantly expand their opportunities and increase revenues, which is also very important.
The activity of New Jersey concerning the British market is also provoked by the high number of operating companies. To be sure, Nevada and Delaware cannot offer such diversity. As for both states mentioned above, they prefer using 888poker, whereas three resources are available in New Jersey. We are talking about PokerStars, partypoker, and 888poker.
This limitation in the number of available platforms does not allow both Nevada and Delaware to cooperate with New Jersey. It will be very difficult to share liquidity between the states.
