The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) has today approved wagering on the VIE.gg Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Legends Series.
Licensed operators in the Garden State are permitted to accept wagers on “single outcome” bets including game-winner and match-winner, both pre-match and live. Bookmakers opting to supply wagers on the Legends Series must submit a request to the Deputy Attorney General and receive confirmation prior to posting bets.
New Jersey-based esports agency Gaud-Hammer Gaming Group (G3) served as a key touchpoint in the positive ruling, helping see the esports event submission through to completion.
Anthony Gaud, CEO of G3, spoke on the state’s approval with Esports Insider: “The commitment that the New Jersey Assembly, the Division of Gaming Enforcement, and the Economic Development Authority have made to supporting the esports industry in all its forms, including esports wagering, is second-to-none. Because of their efforts, New Jersey will be the leader in this exploding field for the foreseeable future.”
