Atlantic City's Borgata has received New Jersey's first Internet gambling permit.

The state Division of Gaming Enforcement says the casino was the first to file a complete application to offer online gambling.

The casino still must wait until a trial period begins Nov. 21 to offer online gambling.

Borgata president Tom Balance says the award of the state's first online gambling permit to his casino shows the company's commitment to take a leading role in Internet gambling.

New Jersey residents and visitors will be allowed to begin full online gambling on Nov. 26 assuming the trial period goes well.

All table and slots games available in the casinos will be available online once full play starts.

Online gambling is seen as a way to help the struggling casinos.
