The New Jersey Sportbook Scene

A pioneer of sports betting in the United States, New Jersey quickly moved to legalize sports betting after the repeal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (PASPA) on the 14th of May 2018. As physical sportsbooks quickly became established, and the first sports bet lodged by Mayor Phil Murphy in June at Monmouth Park, the presence of online sportsbooks in the area was quickly expedited by the players in the industry. First came DraftKings at the start of the August, and seven more followed in the immediate months afterwards, with Australian bookmaker PointsBet launching on the 17th of January in 2019 to make nine in New Jersey. There are giants of the industry in play, such as Paddy Power Betfair who are backing FanDuel, and William Hill who also have a presence in Nevada. More products and platforms are rolling out across the board, and a promising start to New Jersey sports betting in 2018 will likely be topped by enormous growth in 2019.
