ATLANTIC CITY — Trump Taj Mahal casino will partner with a Las Vegas company to provide Internet gambling when the practice begins in New Jersey this fall.

Ultimate Gaming says it will provide a wide range of online casino games and poker using its proprietary technology.

New Jersey's Gaming Enforcement Division told Atlantic City casinos they had until June 30 to arrange Internet gambling deals. The state also set a July 29 deadline to have completed applications submitted to the division.

New Jersey is one of three states in the nation to legalize Internet gambling, along with Delaware and Nevada, which already has started taking bets online.
