ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey casino says it will become the first casino in the United States to let hotel guests gamble from their rooms over the TV set.

Atlantic City's Borgata will offer its E-Casino to hotel guests starting Feb. 18.

It lets guests with player's cards set up electronic accounts and risk up to $2,500 a day. Slots and four kinds of video poker will be the first games offered.

The casino says the technology can be expanded to include gambling over hand-held devices anywhere on casino property, and eventually, full Internet gambling - if New Jersey approves it.

The technology is currently used on large cruise ships. It will be available in all 2,000 of the Borgata's rooms.

Las Vegas allows sports betting on hand-held devices.
