The state of New Jersey is now reasserting its efforts to become the first state to introduce internet gambling laws. After an attempt in 2011, New Jersey failed to reach that distinction.

Those that advertise an illegal operation will be fined ten-thousand dollars. The only people that will be allowed to sign up for th...
