New Jersey Shuts Out US eSports Events from State Sports Betting Field

Game On! Legislature Approves Sports Betting in New Jersey Fans can now wager on NASCAR races at Dover

New Jersey voters already had approved sports wagering by referendum vote years earlier, though the NCAA and professional sports leagues sued to block the state's implementation of the law.

But the change allows him to offer bets on other sports except for basketball.

In the state's fiscally stressed gambling hub Atlantic City, William Hill also plans to operate a 7,500-square-foot, $6 million sports betting area at the twice-bankrupt former Revel Casino Hotel, which is now called the Ocean Resort Casino and is set to open later in June.

The future of sports betting in New Jersey is now in Gov. Phil Murphy's hands.

John Heims, a spokesman for the track, said it would not take any sports bets Thursday night, adding it "should know soon when we are starting".

Arizona would receive $35.8 million to $178.9 million in taxes from sports betting by 2023, according to a 2017 report from Las Vegas-based Global Market Advisors.

State Senate President Steve Sweeney, a Democrat, said the bill was written that way to prevent anyone "from controlling both ends of the bet — owning the team and the company taking the bet".

Republican state Sen. Declan O'Scanlan says language was dropped from the bill that prohibited any sports betting facility from opening until the bill is signed.

Lawmakers rejected the integrity fee payments.

However, Deloitte said that the business would continue trading, with no store closures or redundancies planned at this time. It follows the collapse this year of Toys R Us UK, electricals group Maplin and drinks wholesaler Conviviality.

Since the authorities refuse to feature such fee in the framework of New Jersey's future sports wagering field, they have not included this question in the scheduled vote on the 7th.

Dennis Drazin, the New Jersey Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association advisor and attorney at the forefront of the push for legalized sports betting, told The New York Times he would wait for Governor Murphy's go-ahead before Monmouth took any sports wagers.

It will do likewise at Tioga Downs Racetrack in NY. Monmouth Park Racetrack has been particularly vocal in its desire to begin taking bets on Friday, hoping to cash in on anticipated large racing crowds this weekend. The track has loudly wanted to begin taking bets Friday.

The Supreme Court last month struck down a federal law that barred gambling on football, basketball, baseball and other sports in most states. A clause to allow the Golden Nugget to participate was added to the bill Thursday. "Longstanding practice in Nevada where sports betting has been legal for decades only prohibits Golden Nugget from accepting wagers on the Houston Rockets".

Three casinos in DE started accepting sports wagers this week.

Final legislative approval is expected on Thursday, but it's anyone's bet when Gov. Phil Murphy might sign it.

New Jersey's proposed sports betting law is heading down to the wire.

Legal sports betting is already paying off for the state of DE, which earned a six-figure haul on its first day taking wagers since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a federal ban on the pastime. Now, any state is free to adopt laws legalizing it, and analysts expect most to do so.

The bill would allow Atlantic City casinos and racetracks, including Monmouth, the Meadowlands and Freehold Raceway, to offer sports betting.
