Caesars Atlantic City has been one the most popular destinations in New Jersey for nearly forty years and now they are trying to duplicate that success with their online product. Caesars was one of the first casinos in New Jersey to launch an online platform when Caesars Casino opened its virtual doors on November 26, 2013. They have since entered the sports betting fray and introduced their mobile sports betting app in September. They became just the second operator in New Jersey to combine their online casino with an online sportsbook.
New Jersey’s Sports Betting Handle Hits
Another New High. Will This Trend Continue?
A lot has changed in New Jersey since the Supreme Court ruled in its favor and overturned PASPA on May 14th, 2018. Just one month after the landmark decision, Julius Erving entered the Borgata Race and placed a bet on the Philadelphia Eagles to repeat as Super Bowl Champions. At about the same time, New Jersey governor Phil Murphy went to New Jersey’s only other sportsbook, Monmouth Park Racetrack, and made a couple of bets of his own. Just like that, sports betting in the Garden State finally became a reality.
In total, PokerStars will be giving away $250,000 this holiday season through random Chests that contain $1,000 cash prizes. The promotion started early this season on November 7 and will continue to run until at least all of the rewards have been distributed.
The Stars Rewards program is new in New Jersey, but it was rolled out in other parts of the world last spring. In fact, New Jersey was the last market in which PokerStars decided to roll out its Stars Rewards program. The Stars Rewards program has gotten great feedback in the other markets that it has been rolled out to, first in Denmark and then in Italy.
If the rumors are true, SuperBook and SuperContest could be coming to New Jersey.
The SuperBook at Westgate Las Vegas is the largest sportsbook in the world. It features a huge 350-seat capacity area and a 220-foot by 18-foot video wall, making it an attraction for any sports bettor visiting Las Vegas.
What the SuperBook might be best known for is its SuperContest, a season-long NFL betting contest that seeks to prove who the best bettor on NFL games is. The contest costs $1,500 to enter, and each contestant must pick five games against the spread during each week of the NFL season.

The Musburgers’ media group opens Atlantic City studio to capitalize on New Jersey’s sports betting market
The legal New Jersey sports betting market is having an effect on not only casinos and racetracks in the state. Others are taking notice, too.
That was evident not long ago when the Vegas Stats & Information Network announced it would be expanding from its Las Vegas headquarters to the East Coast to capitalize on New Jersey’s sportsbook footprint. The media group has its own website and app where it broadcasts daily radio shows, and it is also carried on SiriusXM Radio. The network will now have a broadcast studio inside the sportsbook at the Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City. It’s hub in Las Vegas is located in the sportsbook of the South Point.
New Jersey was the leader in the fight toward the overturn of PASPA and as a result the legalization of sports gambling. The state has often touted the potential power of sports betting in New Jersey, and the latest facts and figures are helping to back up those claims.

The Gaming Enforcement’s report was released on October 12 and showed that, in total, NJ sportsbooks accepted wagers that totaled $184 million in the month of September, a significant increase over the $95 million in total wagers at NJ sportsbooks in August.
