With online gambling in the State of New Jersey about a week old, the Division of Gaming Enforcement has stated in no uncertain terms that all potential gamers must be located within the state to play online.

However, casinos are having a hard time verifying whether or not players are physically located within New Jersey’s borders, nj.com reports.

This has resulted in some state residents being wrongfully prohibited from playing games online, according to the report.

According to the Division of Gaming Enforcement’s website, the Borgata, Tropicana, Trump Plaza, Trump Taj Mahal, Caesar’s and Harrah’s have all been approved for online gambling in the state.

The general manager at Tropicana told nj.com that about 75 percent of potential gamers visiting their website have been denied because the system couldn’t verify whether or not they were New Jersey residents.

However, officials say each day more and more players are being granted access to online gaming throughout the state because of technological improvements and the assistance of customer service representatives, according to the report.

Potential gamers have encountered problems depositing money into accounts with the state’s casinos that have been approved for online gaming because some major banks refuse to process online gambling transactions, according to the report.

There have been no complaints about the performance of the games online, according to the report.
