ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - The Golden Nugget can start offering Internet gambling in New Jersey as of midnight. The state Division of Gaming Enforcement cleared the casino on Friday.

Regulators kept the Golden Nugget restricted to trial play when six other casinos were cleared to begin offering full online gambling on Nov. 25.

The Golden Nugget said it was working out glitches with its system and would not open until it was ready to give its customers a first-class experience.

It will be the seventh of Atlantic City's 12 casinos to offer Internet gambling. The Borgata, the two Trump casinos, the Tropicana, Bally's and Caesars currently offer it.

Resorts also has been cleared to offer it, but its online partner, PokerStars, has been barred from Internet gambling in New Jersey for two years.
