Monday brings yet another important benchmark in New Jersey sports betting as it represents the full debut of mobile sports betting in the state.
Somewhat surprisingly, it’s not one of the legacy names in the casino and sports betting industry already doing business in New Jersey cutting the ribbon on online sports wagering. Rather, it’s daily fantasy sports (DFS) industry leader DraftKings, which has quickly built a foothold in an industry it previously had no experience in.
DraftKings Sportsbook is now live for all New Jersey residents via one of Resorts Atlantic City Casino’s online sports betting licenses. The DraftKings Sportsbook smart device application is available for download on both iPhone (iOS) and Android platforms.
“I am excited to begin this new chapter in our story by officially launching what I believe to be the most innovative, mobile sports betting product in the U.S.,” said Jason Robins, CEO and co-founder of DraftKings. “We have put immense thought and significant resources behind the development of DraftKings Sportsbook and I’m confident that sports fans in New Jersey will enjoy using it to make the experience of watching the games even more interesting and thrilling.”
