New Jersey Hits a Six in Sports Betting

New Jersey has hit a six with sports betting with Atlantic City’s Golden Nugget casino to become the sixth in New Jersey to offer sports betting.

State Division of Gaming Enforcement Director David Rebuck says he has approved the Golden Nugget to begin offering on-premises sports betting Wednesday morning.

The Golden Nugget will take its first sports bet about 90 minutes before Resorts opens its in-person sports betting operation. Resorts already offers online and mobile sports betting.

They will join the Borgata, Ocean Resort, Harrah’s and Bally’s casinos among sports betting providers.

The Monmouth Park and Meadowlands racetracks also offer sports betting.

Figures released Tuesday show New Jersey casinos and tracks took in $40.6 million in July, the first full month it was legal.
