iGaming Business – Online gambling and betting firm Bovada has announced it will no longer be accepting new registrations for its online poker service in New Jersey.
Bovada offers online poker in the US state through its Bovada.lv website, but will no longer be taking new applications.
In a statement, Bovada said: “Our partner brand Bovada.lv has chosen to stop new account registrations for residents of the state of New Jersey. Existing account holders will not be affected.
“This is a decision they have taken of their own volition and they hope that their existing customers continue to enjoy all of the products and services Bovada.lv has to offer.”
The news comes shortly after the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement wrote to six US affiliates earlier this month to tell them to remove “any online gaming links that are not authorised under federal law or under the law of any state”.
As reported by iGaming Business, the Equity Poker Network also announced this month that its FullFlashPoker.com flagship online poker room would withdraw its full suite of online real-money gaming options from New Jersey, as well as fellow the regulated states of Delaware and Nevada.
