Poll: Are the Odds in Favor of Gambling Coming to North Jersey?
Some casino-backers argue that gambling could be the solution to many of hard-pressed NJ’s financial problems
Despite -- or maybe because of -- the collapse of Atlantic City casino revenues, state officials are planning to expand gambling to other parts of the state, particularly the north. Plans are still in the early stage, but advocates say the state’s cut of the revenues will be much bigger than it is in Atlantic City. They also indicate that some of the money will be distributed to Atlantic City itself, as well as used to help bail out the horse-racing industry.
