Caesars announced plans to open sportsbooks at two of its Atlantic City properties– Wild Wild West and Harrahs’.
From the press release:
The sports betting offering will begin with facilities at Bally’s, Wild Wild West on July 30 and Harrah’s Atlantic City and August 1. Caesars plans to follow the retail openings with the introduction of mobile sports betting throughout New Jersey on the Caesars Casino & Sports mobile app. In Mississippi, sports betting locations are targeted to be available at Horseshoe Tunica and Harrah’s Gulf Coast in mid-August, just in time for football season. Caesars has quickly mobilized to provide guests a new exciting gaming experience that sports fans can trust.
Sports betting began at 11 a.m. today at Wild Wild West.
As for mobile or live betting, it looks like Caesars will institute betting through its own branded app. That differs from how other casinos are handling things. DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel, 888sport and others are expected to soon launch New Jersey online sports betting apps– most of those will be consumer-facing offerings backed by licensed operators, like Resorts, in the case of DraftKings.
Whatever the case, legal online betting is expected to go live in the coming weeks in New Jersey. DraftKings, FanDuel and 888 should all be up and running by football season.
