Internet gambling is growing slowly in New Jersey, less than three months after it started.

   But casino executives and industry analysts say the increased use of cellphones to place bets, which is starting to happen, could accelerate the growth of the nascent industry in New Jersey.

   The casinos won $7.4 million over the Internet in December. January's $9.5 million represented a 28 percent increase.
