Online gaming in New Jersey officially began Monday at midnight. After a soft rollout last week gaming regulators green-lit six online casinos in the Garden State. New Jersey now joins Delaware and Nevada as the only other states to offer legal online betting with real money.

"We didn't see too many regulatory problems," said David L. Rebuck, director of the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.

Still, concerns had been raised over whether the technology being used can ensure only New Jersey residents log on and gamble.

"It's always possible that someone is going to crack the system and break it," Rebuck said. "But there are many private operators that are achieving the standards we set and they're even going to a higher standard."
