It’s all in for New Jersey’s casino industry as all 12 Atlantic City casinos are making moves towards securing their online gaming permits.

The big 12 notified state regulators of their intentions just ahead of the deadline for casinos that hope to have their operations up by the November launch date.

The stampede towards cyberspace won’t come as a surprise to anyone who’s been following the flagging fortunes of Atlantic City gambling. How bad are things there? Last year a monthly revenue drop of just 4% from boardwalk casinos was heralded as good news.

Licensing fever has also brought the announcement of new online/land-based casino partnerships. Earlier this week it was revealed that Trump Taj Mahal is entering into an online partnership with Ultimate Gaming.

Ultimate can currently lay claim to being the most experienced, largest, and most popular regulated real money poker site in the United States. (And they’ll be able to claim that until the they’ve got at least one actual competitor.)

Other Atlantic City online/land-based pairings include:

  • Caesars Entertainment and 888
  • MGM International and Boyd Gaming Group
  • Borgata Hotel, Casino and Spa and Bwin.Party
  • Atlantic Club Casino and PokerStars (pending the outcome of ongoing litigation)
