Make it 14.
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa now has two online skins up and running. The newest addition to the NJ online sports betting club is BorgataSports.com.
And the new digital platform is available for download on iOS and Android devices as well as on desktop browsers.
The Borgata Sports launch coincides with a historic occasion.
Today marks the one-year anniversary of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) being overturned. The US Supreme Court deemed the 1992 law unconstitutional on May 14, 2018, giving sports betting the green light.
Twelve months later, New Jersey’s sports betting industry now features 24 sportsbooks — 14 online and 10 retail.
More about the BorgataSports NJ app
The Borgata Sports app joins the playMGM NJ app under the company’s mobile sports betting umbrella. Each licensee is allowed three online skins.
GVC Holdings and Borgata are partners on the latest offering.
Much like the rest of the market, Borgata Sports features similar betting options, sports, and promotions. Those options coincide with the Borgata Race & Sports Book at the Atlantic City casino.
Here is what we know about the platform from the press release:
- Straight bets
- Live in-game bets
- Daily boosted parlays
- Multiple deposit methods including Neteller and PayNearMe
Borgata + sports betting expansion
And there is no need to worry about creating a new account or funding another wallet. This applies to existing Borgata Casino and Borgata Poker customers.
All three apps are nested on the same platform.
Marcus Glover, president and COO for Borgata, explains the “seamless transition”:
“With our customers in mind, we have delivered the ability for existing BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com account holders to use their current credentials to sign in and access all platforms, allowing for a seamless transition between products.”
Borgata is the market leader in AC casino revenue. And the property continues to make serious investments.
Sports betting is a huge part of the casino’s summer plans. And it will come in the form of a new $11 million permanent sportsbook. The venue will “integrate an entertaining bar experience with sports wagering.”
The opening date, however, is as unknown as what exactly the new sportsbook will feature.
Borgata + launch of AC sports betting
Borgata made AC history on June 14, 2018, by accepting the town’s first legal sports bet. Former Philadelphia 76er Julius “Dr. J” Erving placed the ceremonial first wager at the Borgata Race & Sports Book.
That came just three days after Gov. Phil Murphy signed the bill that officially made sports betting legal in the state.
And just like that, a regulated environment in which licensed casinos could establish legal sportsbooks arrived.
But Borgata Sports is likely just the start of many more NJ gambling sites to come in 2019.
We are talking expanding from 13 to 20 by the start of NFL season.
Well, make that 14 to 20. Who’s next?
