First, PlaySugarHouse will keep its online casino license with the Golden Nugget. Second, the change will not affect the PlaySugarHouse’s online platform. The layout will stay the same, and everything will go on as usual. The only difference is, the license to offer a sportsbook in New Jersey will come through Monmouth Park.
The reason for the switch is quite logical, two weeks ago the NBA season jumped off! According to reports, PlaySugarHouse was not able to take bets on NBA games. Now, this was due to its license with the Golden Nugget. You see, the owner of the Nugget is also the same man who owns the Huston Rockets. So, in order for Fertitta to get a sports betting license in New Jersey, he had to strike a deal with the New Jersey DGE. The agreement forbids the Golden Nugget to offer NBA wagering. And that’s why this happened.
As the game changes fast in New Jersey, one must do what’s needed to stay relevant! After all, Atlantic City is a raw as it gets! In other words, the hustle in Atlantic City is real, and the competition is stiff!
If you want to compete with DraftKings, well, sometimes you have to make bold moves like the one PlaySugarHouse made. There’s a lot of money to make during the NBA season. If you miss out on that as a sportsbook, then you can count on some hard times ahead. Unless you’re the Golden Nugget of course! Despite not offering NBA sports betting, the casino is still the leader in its online casino offerings. So as a result of the switch, nobody loses, and everybody continues to win and stay relevant! With that said, let’s go Mets!
