Traffic Rise For NJ Online Poker Sites


New Jersey poker sites have noticed an increase in traffic. This has translated into more players enjoying cash games. Read the article for yourself and come back here for our commentary. This is the first step in a very important march towards progress. Make no mistake about it, this is exactly what progress looks like. That doesn’t mean it’s been all smooth sailing.

The truth of the matter is, it’s been anything but smooth. By no means is that an excuse for any state to not legalize online poker, it’s an incentive to do it now. That way the bumps can be ironed out now and people can play the game that they love.

The roll out of online poker has been slow in terms of players. Even now there are only a little over a hundred players. It’s a growing number and will continue over time. More online poker sites will come about and the number will no doubt grow.

New Jersey residents have only been able to play online poker for roughly two years. During that time there has been issues with credit card processing and software. It’s safe to say in the two years that online poker has been legal in New Jersey, it’s been an up hill battle.

Things take time and nothing happens overnight. It should be expected that there will be some hiccups along the way in New Jersey. The great thing is, other states will be able to learn from all this when they legalize poker. Each state will be able to model their own online poker roll out based on New Jersey and the other states.

It also means the companies dealing with online poker will have more experience. As we all know experience is invaluable and it’s currently teaching a lot of people quite a few lessons.

What’s in the cards for New Jersey’s online poker? Hopefully things will continue to get better and the amount of players will increase. It’s impossible to know and everything is still fairly new. There aren’t enough players at this time to sustain an online poker site for long. That’s the truth and no one seems to be willing to admit it.

The best thing that could happen is that more states legalize online gambling and they allow interstate play. Why not let someone in California play poker against someone in Michigan? They’re both Americans and should be able to play against each other if they so choose.

The wrinkles have yet to be ironed out. That’s the one thing that we can take away from all of this. Brick and mortar casinos have been around and know what they’re doing. The hope is always that a casino mogul will invest in online poker. They’re the ones that truly have the ability to revolutionize the industry.

They’ve got more than money, most have political clout that could go a long ways in legalizing online poker around the country. It’s a sure bet that the minute they feel there’s money in online poker, they’ll be investing in it.
