The Kansas City Chiefs are playing the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV in Miami on Feb. 2.
Now is the time to start making your big game plans. Viewing parties for the Super Bowl in Atlantic City casinos are expecting significant crowds.
The eight retail sportsbooks and 17 NJ sports betting apps may have just a tad to do with it.
The Chiefs opened as a 1.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook.
Wagering is going to be a big deal on Super Bowl Sunday, and AC casinos have big plans. Here is a rundown of where to bet and enjoy the big game’s festivities.
If you cant make it to an AC casino but will be in New Jersey then get a wager down at DraftKings Sportsbook online. They have a $25 free for joining Super Bowl promo.
Sports Betting Scene: The Book at Bally’s Wild Wild West went from having one of the smallest spaces in town to the largest at 15,228 square feet.
Like in Miami, reserving a seat isn’t a bad idea (there are more than 200). Standing is optional.
The 98 foot by 18 foot, high-resolution LED television wall with surround sound is one of those viewing experiences you will not get at the neighborhood house party.
Where to Hang: Guests will have a difficult time finding a better Super Bowl Atlantic City viewing experience. The Book includes its Beer Yourself wall (the only one in AC).
Those who arrive feeling hungry can grab a bite at the pre-kickoff buffet at the Wild Wild West (Boardwalk Saloon) from 2 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $30 (available for purchase on-site).
The word from Bally’s is a-la-carte offerings from Guy Fieri’s Chophouse and Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill will be available from 4 p.m. until kickoff.
The pregame festivities will include a live performance by Lost in Paris.
Sports Betting Scene: AC’s highest grossing casino is all in thanks to the addition of Moneyline Bar & Book. The highlight of the 8,000-square-foot room is the 40-foot-wide LED video wall. And the six betting windows are footsteps away from your table.
The menu features 20 craft beers and specialty bar bites. If you’re coming down on Feb. 2, make a reservation.
- BetMGM Sportsbook
- Borgata Sportsbook
Where to Hang: Fans seeking more of a lounge-like setting can watch at the connecting Level One Cocktail Bar & Lounge.
Another option is booking a table at Wolfgang Puck American Grille. The tavern section of the fine dining restaurant will have guaranteed seating with a reservation. There is a $75 per person food and beverage minimum.
Sports Betting Scene: The Book at Bally’s doubles as the Caesars sports betting space. The good news is the sister properties are connected, so leave the coats in the car.
Where to Hang: Place a mobile wager or two before hitting the blackjack table. The TVs will be tuned to the Super Bowl.
Sports Betting Scene: The Sportsbook resembles a cozy fan cave with five video walls and more than 50 TVs. There is room for 173 people, with seating for about 100 guests. NJ bettors can wager via the four tellers or eight kiosks.
Where to Hang: The Golden Nugget is hosting two additional Super Bash LIV free viewing parties.
One is taking place in the main atrium, starting at 4 p.m. (food and beverage will be served). Rush Lounge, featuring 22 screens and comfortable seating, is the other spot.
Sports Betting Scene: What a difference a year makes. Hard Rock Sportsbook app and betting windows launched days prior to Super Bowl LIII. The retail space was still under construction.
The 3,800-square-foot space has 50 seats and 60 TVs.
Where to Hang: Besides the sportsbook, guests can watch the game at the Lobby Bar or Hard Rock Cafe Center Bar.
But the biggest party scene is taking place inside of Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena. This special event for Wild Card Reward members goes from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. There will be large screens set up for viewing paired with stadium-style food and beverages.
The word is that former Philadelphia Eagles players Brent Celek and Seth Joyner will be there.
Joe Lupo, the president, said the property is looking forward to hosting one of the biggest parties in the city inside Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena.
” … Guests will have access to large viewing monitors, seating for over 2,000 guests, food and beverage, retail and mobile sports betting, as well as seeing former NFL greats from the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles.
“We appreciate the work done by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement who have not only assisted in providing more opportunities for the weekend, but also have helped evolve sports betting to be one of the most significant new drivers of gaming revenue in the state.”
Sports Betting Scene: The Book at Harrah’s offers the look and feel of a movie theater. The 3,800-square-foot space includes two fan caves and seating for 100-plus guests. Attendees can watch the game will on high-quality resolution LED screens.
There are four live teller windows available to place those big game wagers.
Where to Hang: Besides The Book, Harrah’s is where to find the closest thing to a “Miami-esque experience.” The Pool is hosting an intimate viewing party (cabana and bungalow rentals are available, too). Signature cocktails and game day platters are on the menu.
Don’t worry about leaving this tropical oasis to bet. Mobile wagers can be placed poolside.
Sports Betting Scene: The William Hill-branded sportsbook is one of AC’s largest at 7,5000 square feet. Skybox suites overlook the massive space complete with a state-of-the-art panoramic video wall.
Even with seating for more than 100 guests, this place tends to attract standing-room-only crowds for major sporting events.
There are eight betting windows.
Where to Hang: Five different viewing parties are planned, including the one at William Hill.
Others may want to hit the Topgolf Swing Suite, where there are 22 screens, “melt-in-your-mouth food” and virtual golf. Oh, we can’t forget zombie dodgeball. No matter which spot you pick, there will be plenty of Bud Light to go around.
Mike Donovan, chief marketing officer and senior vice president of Ocean, is expecting it to be busy.
“We are forecasting a sellout for that whole weekend. We’ll have parties across the property in William Hill Sportsbook, Topgolf, Ovation Hall, The Den, Villain & Saint and High Water Wine Bar.“We sold out of Bud Light last year with the crowds so we’ll make sure to have plenty of cold ones ready this time around.”
Resorts: Super Bowl Atlantic City
Sports Betting Scene: AC’s oldest property, of course, is home to DraftKings Sportsbook. The 5,000-square-foot space is large enough to fit 400 guests, with the overflow spilling out to the entrance. The 15-foot video wall is the centerpiece.
There are five betting windows and 18 kiosks, making it easy-peasy to place those prop bets.
Where to Hang: The good news is if you want to wager and watch the game elsewhere, Resorts will be hosting multiple viewing parties. Seven to be exact, complete with drink specials.
Whether it’s at Landshark Bar & Grill, Gallagher’s Burger Bar or one of the other locations, finding food and football will not be an issue.
Tropicana: Super Bowl Atlantic City
Sports Betting Scene: The Super Bowl scene at the Trop will be bigger and better this time around. William Hill Sportsbook features 1,654-square-feet video display.
There are 180 seats (high-tops and lounge seating included) and eight betting windows.
- William Hill NJ
Where to Hang: Having The Quarter within walking distance means the property will be hopping for the big game. There will be plenty of food and drink specials, too.
Chickie’s and Pete’s (located across from the sportsbook) is offering a $55 all-you-can-eat menu. It includes many of the favorite items from the popular sports bar.
