Golden Nugget rolls out sports betting

By ,

Atlantic City’s Golden Nugget Casino, Hotel & Marina unveiled its sportsbook on Aug. 31, just ahead of Labor Day weekend, making it the latest in New Jersey to offer sports betting.

The 2,500 square-foot sportsbook, located in the former site of the Golden Nugget’s Poker Room, will allow patrons to build their own parlays using true odds, pick from a wide selection of combo bets and rake in more bonuses on their winnings.

Patrons will also be able to use pre-match attractive odds, place sports wagers during the game and cash out early. The sportsbook will have five video walls, over 50 televisions, nine betting kiosks, four betting cashiers and seating for over 100 patrons.

“There couldn’t be a better time for The Sportsbook’s debut,” said Tom Pohlman, general manager of the Golden Nugget Atlantic City. “Just in time for one of the busiest weekends of the year, players will feel like they are watching their favorite sporting event live from the comfort of the most luxurious setting New Jersey has to offer.”

Golden Nugget is expecting to roll out mobile sports betting in the fall, Pohlman said.

In August, Resorts Casino Hotel went live with in-person sports betting, as well as an online and mobile sports betting venture between the hotel and DraftKings.

To date, patrons have bet $57.1 million since sports betting was officially rolled out in New Jersey on June 14.

On Sept. 12 the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, which regulates sports betting, is scheduled to publish the numbers on how much sports bettors waged during August.
