Jan 10, 2011, 07:30 ET from High 5 Games

MAHWAH, N.J., Jan. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- High 5 Games announced today that it has launched a media site to cover the ever-changing gaming industry within New Jersey. The new site, njgamingnews.com, will focus on internet gaming, the Atlantic City casino market, and the state's horse racing industry.

"We decided to create NJ Gaming News because we felt there was a need for it," said Anthony Singer, president and CEO of High 5 Games. "The New Jersey gaming industry is in the midst of transformative times, and we wanted to provide one place where anyone could go to learn all of the most recent developments."

NJ Gaming News will feature breaking news on legislative happenings, interviews with elected officials and major industry figures, and in-depth articles on the state's casino market.

Stephen A. Murphy, H5G's communications and marketing manager, will serve as the editor and primary writer of the site. Mr. Murphy was previously the managing editor of Card Player Media in Las Vegas, which focused on the global and internet poker industry.

"With the current economic climate and increased competition from neighboring states affecting Atlantic City's bottom line, New Jersey's gaming industry has no choice but to evolve," said Mr. Murphy. "As the state reforms its gaming industry and moves toward regulated internet gaming, we will be there every step of the way to inform New Jersey residents and the global gaming community of what's happening."

The New Jersey legislature held hearings on several pieces of gaming legislation in 2010, including bills that would explicitly legalize internet gaming, significantly alter the state's regulatory structure, and create an Atlantic City tourism district.

NJ Gaming News will operate as a subsidiary of High 5 Games.
