With less than a week away from the NFL season opening, all bets are on at the Borgata. The casino was the first to start taking sports bets on June 14th, now they’re back to set the record straight!
That’s right, as of August 22nd, the new mobile app is finally here! The Borgata is now live online and right on time! The first bet of $50 went in favor of the Philadelphia Eagles over the Atlanta Falcons on Sep. 6th. Which, is the NFL opening game day. Also, defending Superbowl champs, Philadelphia Eagles, are the favored team to win. Although, when Atlanta is the underdog, there is always room for disappointment some say! So, who will you bet on, on Game Day?
Hit the ground running
The playMGM sports betting app is already popular in NV, giving the launch in NJ some advantage. MGM Chairman & CEO Jim Murren said the following:
“We have a running start with players in New Jersey. Our app has been active for a very long time. We’re the largest sports betting operation in Las Vegas!”
With that said, it’s pretty clear that MGM and its AC Borgata Casino are going to make their mark in the NJ market. Furthermore, bringing major competition to the table in the Garden State. As of now DraftKings, playMGM, Golden Nugget and Play SugarHouse offer mobile sports betting in NJ.
