Borgata announces construction of 11m sportsbook

Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa will invest more than $11m into building a new sports betting venue.

The construction plans include a new bar and sports wagering experience, expected to open in the summer.  

Marcus Glover, President and Chief Operating Officer for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, said: “Since Borgata arrived in the Atlantic City market more than 15 years ago, we have maintained a steadfast dedication to property growth and development, with our new concept exemplifying this objective.

“We are proud to have been at the forefront of legalised sports betting in New Jersey and look forward to advancing our product with an innovative gaming and entertainment experience for our guests to enjoy.”

Last June, Borgata became the first Atlantic City casino to accept a legal sports wager under new betting regulations in New Jersey.

Since that first bet, Borgata has partnered with GVC Holdings to launch the PlayMGM NJ Sports mobile app, offering players bets on US and international sports events.
