Another new online sportsbook in New Jersey has officially hit the market. The Golden Nugget in Atlantic City joins the competitive battle of mobile sports betting within the Garden State.
Golden Nugget Sportsbook is now the 13th online book in the state.
Despite missing football season, the timing isn’t horrible for the NJ casino. The Academy Awards take place on Sunday, and NCAA’s March Madness begins in about a month. Both events will see plenty of betting action.
Golden Nugget’s NJ online sports betting website is now live and available for desktop and mobile devices with iOS and Android. Apple users can download the app from the iTunes Store while Android customers must download it directly from Golden Nugget Casino’s website.
The app is powered by SBTech.
Golden Nugget online sportsbook
Golden Nugget enters NJ gambling websites sports betting space after making its mark in the online casino industry and the Golden Nugget Sportsbook in AC. Its mobile casino is regarded as the best in NJ.
Golden Nugget’s existing casino app will be important to find its footing in an already busy sports-betting scene. Its previously established customers will not need to create a new login for the sportsbook.
This should allow many of Golden Nugget’s active online casino users to easily transition their sports betting to the new part of the app instead of using another platform. Customers will utilize a shared wallet between the casino and sportsbook.
For those who don’t already use the casino app, signing up is easy.
By simply providing some personal information like your name, date of birth, address, phone number, email and last four digits of your Social Security number, you will have created an account.
You’ll receive a confirmation email when complete.
You must be 21 years old and located within NJ to use the sportsbook.
Golden Nugget sports betting
Golden Nugget Sportsbook has a large variety of sports to wager on. They include:
- Aussie rules football
- Mixed martial arts
- Motor racing
- Rugby union
One interesting note, however, is that the sportsbook currently doesn’t offer any NBA betting at this point.
Tilman Fertitta, the owner of the Golden Nugget, is also the owner of the NBA’s Houston Rockets.
Since there would be a potential conflict of interest, the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement has currently prohibited the sportsbook from taking bets on the NBA.
Golden Nugget executives are working toward changing this ruling, though. They are looking to be able to offer NBA games not involving the Rockets, as Golden Nugget Sportsbook in Las Vegas does.
You are still able to bet on college basketball as well as the EuroLeague.
