Despite being the pacemakers, SugarHouse online casino is definitely not the first to offer mobile sports betting in New Jersey.
Bursting onto the scene with a fresh look, they went live on Thursday displaying an online NJ sports betting platform, operated by Rush Street Interactive.

There are 450 casino and live dealer games complemented by Sugarhouse, boasting in excess of 5 million in-play betting options. Players are able to flip effortlessly between the online sportsbook and the casino, especially with a shared wallet.
An early cash-out option for bettors wagering on in-game props is a highlighted feature by SugarHouse. Purely entailing, whichever results that determine methods of acquiring their winning parts or minimized losses, the players have the option to terminate an active bet.
The odds according to SugarHouse sportsbook are demonstrated in three various ways: namely American (Vegas-style), fractional (horse race-style) and decimal which is easier for betting beginners (To calculate payout, you have to multiply bet by the odds).
The users for iOS and Android also have the SugarHouse sportsbook and casino app catered for them.
Rush Street along with Kambi Group partnered on a multi-year deal in May, immediately after the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) got struck down by the US Supreme Court. According to Kambi’s Thursday release, for creating “a premium turnkey solution” the B2B sports betting provider is required to supply its online tech for SugarHouse, which could be leveraged by operators in other regulated US markets.
Kambi CEO Kristian Nylen stated in the release, “In what is another major milestone for Kambi, I am delighted we have been able to assist Rush Street Interactive in becoming one of the early movers in the online wagering market in New Jersey”. She continues, “To be providing our Sportsbook to two of the three online operators currently live in New Jersey is a great achievement and provides further evidence that Kambi is the trusted sports betting partner for operators wishing to enter regulated markets.”
As it remains up to Wednesday, MGM unleashed its playMGM app making them the only mobile sportsbook ruling the Garden State. Previously, since its inception on the first week of August, DraftKings Sportsbook app was dominating for back-to-back weeks.
A month after following Rush Street partnership announcement, amusingly a merge between the daily fantasy sports giant and Kambi Group happened. After all, based on the press release, the agreement set up DraftKings to “leverage the Kambi technology ahead of its imminent sportsbook launch in the US state of New Jersey”.
Jason Robins, DraftKings CEO, expressed in the event: “Everybody knows there’s a big opportunity out there. It’s a new thing, so people are trying to see how they want to go about it, who they want to partner with. Anytime you’ve got a big market about to be created, there’s so much opportunity out there that everyone should benefit, as long as you do it the right way.”
By the looks of things an expansion of the trio of mobile sportsbooks anticipates. It was newly reported by NJ Division of Gaming Enforcement director David Rebuck on the Legal Sports Report that by month-end several mobile operators may takeoff.
“We’ve got a lot of mobile products in the lab now,” Rebuck said, “and we’re very anxious and optimistic that before the end of the month we’re going to have a few more out there in New Jersey.
Its evident as developments shape up for casinos, Rebuck doesn’t seem ready to unveil the provider’s names yet.

Moreover, September plans for Resorts Online Casino surfaced of rolling out a mobile sportsbook.
