New Jersey Sports Betting Signed into Law Today

It's official - Sports betting is legal in New Jersey!

Over the next 90 days you'll be able to bet on sports at racetracks, casinos, and online casinos in New Jersey! 

Today, June 11th 2018, Gov. Phil Murphy signed Bill A 4111, officially legalizing NJ sports betting. This signature marks a sum 6-year long effort, started by Gov. Christie, full of legal battles with the NCAA that made it's way up to the US Supreme Court. On May 14th, the supreme court ruled in favor of New Jersey, permitting NJ, and all other states to legalize and regulate sports betting if they so choose, ending a decades long ban.

Sports Betting in NJ is Legal - Here's What the Gov. Has to Say

Gov. Murphy released a statement today:
Today, we’re finally making the dream of legalized sports betting a reality for New Jersey. I’m thrilled to sign Assembly Bill 4111 because it means that our casinos in Atlantic City and our racetracks throughout our state can attract new business and new fans, boosting their own long-term financial prospects.

A 4111 was unanimously approved by both legislative chambers just last week.  The bill allows NJ casinos and racetracks to accept sports bets on their properties as soon as this week. Monmouth Park intends to take its first sports bets on Thursday at 10:30 a.m.

NJ Sports Betting Sites

The only thing left, legally, before people in NJ can bet on sports, is for the Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) to release their full, emergency regulations, which will cover the industry for 270 days. Once the regulations are released, they will contain details for how existing Atlantic City casinos can officially get in on the action.

As far as we can tell, it should be a minimum of 30 days until NJ online betting sites launch, but don't worry, there will surely be a ton of ad campaigns peppering every TV station as soon as the doors are open and you can legal make bets online for your favorite sports!
