NJ online casinos, a website that lists and reviews all the regulated online gambling sites and casinos in New Jersey, is proud to announce that it has now acquired the domain nj-online-casinos.io.

A spokesperson from NJ Online Casinos said, “Considering all the online casinos New Jersey has to offer, it’s not a surprise that people from other states are willing to travel to NJ to play.
