Sports betting in New Jersey in 2015
New Jersey State Senator Raymond Lesniak is betting on sports wagering in Atlantic City casinos by next year. Lesniak detailed the state's intention to proceed with its implementation of sportsbooks in the Garden State even without the US Supreme Court's approval. He likened the situation to the conflict between state and federal law over marijuana legalization and does not expect punishment from the US Justice Department.
SBR questioned Senator Lesniak on the lackluster performance thus far of online gambling in New Jersey. Lesniak minced no words when it came to the marketing divisions of Atlantic City casinos, describing their efforts thus far as amateurish at best. Lesniak believes that there will be no tepid start when it comes to sports betting and points to Nevada's success in that area. At the end of the day, New Jerseyans want to wager on sports too in a legal manner and Lesniak believes they will soon be able to.
Sportsbook Review will update as more news develop out of New Jersey concerning sports betting.
