Atlantic City Gambling Age

by Jerry "Jet" Whittaker
April 12, 2006

In order to be able to take part in gambling in the Atlantic city of New Jersey, one must at least be 18 years of age. Gambling activities that include lottery, pari-mutuel betting, bingo and pull-tabs come under this rule. For slot machine games and other gambling games within the casinos one must be 21 years of age. Legal laws have determined these lower age limits for the citizens of Atlantic City.

Minimum age for gambling

At 18 years of age, a person of sound mind understands the basic responsibilities that he has towards himself, his family and his friends. At this age he also realizes the value of money and the social and economical factors that form part of his life. Gambling is a risk where you cannot predict if the money you have placed on a bet will come back to you. This could even lead to gambling addiction that is just a step away from compulsive gambling habit. Although casinos exist for the gamblers, they do not encourage irresponsible gambling. Atlantic City recognizes this fact and has laid down rules for the same.

Gambling is entertainment not a way of life

Young teenagers tend to get carried away while gambling. Beginnerís luck in some cases makes them believe that the only way to make money is by gambling. Young adults realize that one must make responsible decisions as gambling addiction can lead to problems like splurging, borrowing and even affect normal day-to-day living. Teenagers are discouraged from adopting habits of gambling as they could become addicted and end up as compulsive gamblers in their lives at a later stage. Gambling is just another form of entertainment and not a way of life.

Casino gambling at Atlantic City hotels

Atlantic City hotels are widely known for their hotels that also house casinos and are known for their gambling games and money that changes hands. At the same time Atlantic City casinos allow members only above the age of 18 for their gambling games and restrict entry to members under the age of 21 years from playing at the slot machines.
