Senate Advances Eustace Bill to Allow New Jersey Residents to Participate in Contests of Skill
Bill Brings Common Sense & Eliminates Confusion over ContestsLegislation sponsored by Assemblyman Tim Eustace to bring an end to an archaic state law that bars New Jersey residents from participating in contests of skill was approved by a Senate panel on Monday.
The bill (A-3624) provides that participation by a New Jersey resident in a contest of skill in which a participant pays an entry fee for the opportunity to win money or something else of value is not considered a game of chance, does not constitute unlawful gambling and will not subject the participant or the sponsor of the contest to any civil or criminal liability.
