Mario Galea, president of Random Consulting in Malta, has been selected as a consultant to help New Jersey implement internet gambling by the end of the year, New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement Director David Rebuck announced at the East Coast Gaming Congress on Wednesday.

Rebuck said Galea will begin working with the state this week as the state approaches its agressive timeline for implementation. Galea is the former chief executive officer of the Lotteries and Gaming Authority in Malta and has an extensive background in online gambling.
