New Jersey Governor Signs Bill Removing Geolocation Restrictions For New Jersey Horseplayers

New Jersey residents can now use their New Jersey wagering systems online even when they’re in another state, thanks to a bill signed last week by Gov. Phil Murphy.

Previously, geolocation restrictions had applied to New Jersey horseplayers, preventing them from accessing their accounts if they were using phones or computers with IP addresses showing they were out of state. The new law will not permit New Jersey residents to wager while physically located in a state that doesn’t allow betting.

The bill passed the state assembly 73-0 in June and 35-0 in the state senate last month.

“All New Jersey residents should be allowed to place wagers on horse racing no matter where they are, whether it’s online or through an agency,” read a statement from bill co-sponsor Ronald Dancer (R-Ocean). “With the changes in technology, our access to place wagers has changed, and the law should reflect those changes. It’s also critical we do everything we can do to keep our staple industries afloat during and after the coronavirus pandemic.”
