Gambling is allowed in New Jersey…just not if you own a casino. The owner of the Golden Nugget is going to pay a fine of $15,000 for playing blackjack at Revel and Borgata last year. Tilman Fertitta who owns a number of properties across the country agreed to pay the fine as certain casino personnel are barred from gambling in the state. Other states don’t have regulations unless its your own property. The Golden Nugget blames the mix up on Fertitta being used to other state’s laws.
