An online casino right here in the U.S. that offers real slots, roulette, blackjack, and poker?

That would be Betfair Casino.

Betfair Casino is based in New Jersey and is a partner with Trump Plaza Associates LLC, who is a New Jersey Internet Gambling permit holder. Those who are 21 or older and physically present in the state of New Jersey can play a slew of casino games online from a computer or through an app on their mobile devices.

Betfair offers both an Android and iOS real money casino app that can be downloaded.

It was only a matter of time before gaming apps hit the market

Smartphone penetration happened to be higher in the U.S. than most other territories that offer gambling products online (60% of mobile subscribers are using smartphone according to Nielson, June 2013). This lends itself well to a mobile-first strategy for online casinos in New Jersey.

"We have noticed the share of our customers using mobile rising substantially – nearing 20% now," says Anton Dobrosevic, Head of CRM for Betfair.

The Betfair Casino mobile apps offer everything when it comes to gaming, including: full sign-up, deposit and withdrawal of funds, as well as an assortment of slots and table games.

In order to play, you have to be in New Jersey, and this is strictly monitored.

"It’s strict enforcement has meant that a number of New Jersey residents have not yet been able to play due to them being near state borders, says Dobrosevic. "However mobile app users can be pin-pointed more accurately and this has given those players access to the online casino rooms."

Online gaming through an app may be the next frontier.
