Trump Plaza online bets can continue

New Jersey casino regulators will let Betfair continue to take Internet bets after its brick-and-mortar casino partner, Trump Plaza, closes down later this month.

David Rebuck, director of the state Division of Gaming Enforcement, tells The Associated Press he will allow Betfair to continue operating online up until the point where Trump Plaza surrenders its casino license.

That will not take place for some time after the Sept. 16 shutdown of Trump Plaza.

Rebuck says there should be plenty of time for Betfair to seek an alliance with a different Atlantic City casino, should it choose to do so.

The company had no immediate comment.
