ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — The number of people signing up for Internet gambling in New Jersey continues to rise.

The state’s Gaming Enforcement Division says more than 91,000 accounts have been created as of Sunday.

Internet gambling began with a 5-day trial period on Nov. 21 and was opened up statewide on Nov. 25. Seven casinos are offering online gambling, the most recent being the Golden Nugget, which began on Saturday.

The others are the Borgata; the Tropicana; Trump Plaza; the Trump Taj Mahal; Caesars and Bally’s.

Resorts has received approval to offer Internet gambling. But their online partner, PokerStars, has been suspended from offering Internet gambling in New Jersey for two years due to an unresolved indictment against its founder.
