Have you started making your Super Bowl LIV plans yet?
OK, it may be a tad early.
We don’t even know which two teams will be playing in the big game.
But for the New Jersey sports betting crowd, booking a ticket to Miami may not be the best option. Atlantic City casinos are starting to take reservations for Feb. 2, 2020.
Packing a bag for a weekend stay is optional.
Super Bowl at Moneyline and The Book
The majority of AC’s eight retail sportsbooks are still ironing out the details. So far, three Atlantic City casinos have seats available for purchase:
Ironically, all three properties only had temporary facilities set up for Super Bowl LIII between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams.
Moneyline Bar & Book at the MGM-owned Borgata opened in June. Call it an upscale sports bar with the bonus of sports wagering windows.
Guaranteed seating can be reserved at Moneyline or the adjacent Level One Cocktail Bar & Lounge. There is a $75 per person food and beverage minimum. Call 609-317-7249.
Two of the Caesars Entertainment-owned properties are also taking reservations.
The Book at Bally’s held its grand opening celebration during Week One of the NFL season. At 15,228 square feet, it’s by far AC’s biggest sportsbook and has the look and feel of a Las Vegas venue.
In terms of seating, there are numerous options. Prices range from $30 for an end zone, high-top seat to more than $1,000 for a fan cave.
Sister property Harrah’s, on the other hand, offers a smaller, more intimate 3,800-square-foot setting. While the majority of seats are cozy, the options are limited. Prices range from $50 for an end zone seat to more than $800 for a “fan cave” premium experience.
More NJ mobile sports betting options
NFL betting in New Jersey is hugely popular. As a result, the number of mobile betting apps available continues to grow.
At last year’s Super Bowl, the Garden State sports betting market featured 12 options, three of which launched days before the big game.
But what does all this mean for Super Bowl Sunday? Well, revenue-wise, figuring out ways to avoid another $4.5 million loss is a good start.
In terms of the sports betting atmosphere, every AC casino is all in with permanent retail operations. While it will not match the spectacle of Las Vegas, New Jersey sportsbooks are gearing up for a big day.
Reserving a seat is optional.
