Thanks for the support Simmo!
I think this company was the first to apply per the article but don't believe anyone has been approved to date, not sure. I read somewhere that N.J. has received over 37 license applications but didn't identify each by sector, so not sure how many are casino's vs. other type providers.
From what I seeing, might be some good info. to post within this thread, here's what the states are currently requiring.
1. During registration you'll need to insert your information and this will be ran through Government databases to see if it matches.
2. Your IP address will be checked but since this isn't full proof additional measures must be taken such as geo location, hard doc's.
3. Just like offshore they require hard document requests such as D.L., passport, utility bill etc..
I've been following the geo location process and it can be a mess at times.
You must have an active cell phone, it must be on while gambling online. A text will be sent from time to time and you must reply to show you're still within the state. They also have a buffer zone around the border, so even if you're located inside a licensed state if you're outside the buffer zone you can't gamble.
Furthermore if you're inside the buffer zone there's a chance your cell provider might bounce you off a tower located over the border making it appear like you're not located within the state and the same applies with internet companies and your IP address.
This process must get better, I think it's a great idea but too many things can go wrong. Cell towers constantly go down, it would be disappointing to be on a hot streak and then have to stop because your phone couldn't be verified by a geo locator company during play, JMO.
