ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — The race is on among states who want to become dominant players in the Internet gambling market.

With the rapid advent of online gambling, New Jersey and Nevada are expected to slug it out to become top dog in the fledgling online betting market in the U.S.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed a law Tuesday legalizing Internet betting, not long after Nevada did the same. And Delaware could have its online betting operation up and running by late September.

Industry executives say a key to who will dominate the industry will be how online betting is regulated by different states. That, in turn, will affect the interstate compacts that are likely to quickly expand the market.

Online poker is expected to be one of the most popular offerings.
