Atlantic City's first casino said Wednesday that it's launching New Jersey's most expansive online gambling platform yet, bringing to six the number of Atlantic City casinos offering Web bets. 

The platform will begin operating on a limited schedule noon Friday and should be fully operational by the end of next week, said Resorts CEO Mark Giannantonio. 

In a statement the casino said the platform, at, "will feature the largest selection of casino slots and table games in the state of New Jersey."

Giannantonio says the site boats a streamlined process unrivaled by existing sites.

The online gambling industry has grappled with payment processing and geo-location snafus since November 2013, when New Jersey became the first state with a full array of online gambling.

"We think we've had an opportunity to see what’s been working and maybe not working so well in the market," he said.
