Caesars Launches NJ Online Sports Betting, Making A Half Dozen Apps In State

The New Jersey sports betting apps are coming at a furious pace now, as the third launch in a week came on Thursday night.

Here comes Caesars for NJ sports betting

Caesars Entertainment announced that it is taking sports bets as of today, the sixth online offering in New Jersey to date.

You can access it via the Caesars online casino on a browser or on the Caesars app for iPhones, iPads and Android devices. Existing users should see it in their app after updating it.

For several weeks, DraftKings Sportsbook had a corner on the market as the online sports betting app. Since its launch in early August, five more have launched, including Caesars and FanDuel Sportsbook.

Caesars previously had physical, temporary sportsbooks at its two Atlantic City casinos: Bally’s Wild Wild West and Harrah’s Atlantic City.

The website and app have a full menu of wagering options at launch. Sports include:

  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Baseball
  • Hockey
  • Golf
  • Tennis
  • Soccer
  • Motorsports
  • Boxing
  • Mixed martial arts

Many of the types of wagers you would expect to see — moneylines, totals, futures, point spreads and parlays — were available on launch.

While there was no in-play wagering available for Thursday night’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Atlanta Falcons, it does appears Caesars will offer it in the future.

More to come from Caesars

“Since New Jersey decided to allow mobile sports betting, we have been working diligently to create the most engaging and fun mobile platform which provides users with the ability to place bets on their favorite sporting events,” said Mark Frissora, CEO and President of Caesars.

“Players have the opportunity to earn and redeem rewards points through our Total Rewards loyalty program, which they can redeem for memorable experiences inside our world-class resorts. This launch further solidifies our investment into this exciting space.”

The sports betting offering from Caesars is powered by Scientific Games.

In the release announcing the launch, Caesars also indicated it “plans to introduce retail locations and expand its mobile offerings in additional states when and if it becomes legal and economically attractive” to do so.
