The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement is taking action against online gambling sites in the state that are operating illegally.

New Jersey is one of only a handful of states that currently have legalized online gambling in operation in the US. Despite the legal means to offer services, illegal gaming sites are still at play in the US, including in New Jersey.

The Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) has stated that they are now getting serious about taking action against online gaming sites that are illegal operating in their state.

According to the OPR website, A letter was sent by the agency warning affiliates about the consequences that will arise from marketing to customers in their state. The illegally operating sites most likely received the same or a similar letter.

The issue first came to light when David Rebuck, the head of the DGE, began to become more vocal about the problem of illegal operations. As sports betting becomes more prevalent, the issue of illegal competition will only continue to grow in the state.
