NJ sports betting kicked off on June 14 with two physical sportsbooks in the state. That number quickly exploded and the market now hosts 13 sportsbook apps and 10 retail books at Atlantic City casinos and North Jersey racinos.

Monmouth Park was the first to open its betting windows, followed immediately by Borgata in Atlantic City. Ocean Resort Casino opened on June 28 with a partially constructed William Hill sportsbook just a few steps off the Boardwalk.

DraftKings Sportsbook app launched statewide on Aug. 6 becoming the first online sportsbook in the state.

Every month the Division of Gaming Enforcement releases the previous month’s legal sports betting handle and revenue. “Handle” refers to the total amount wagered, while “revenue” is what’s left over after the winning tickets are paid out.

New Jersey uses the “cash method” of accounting, which means that transactions are reported as they occur. Futures bets, for example, are counted as revenue in the month they’re placed and written off as losses as the winning tickets are paid. Note: Handle for individual sportsbooks is not reported by the DGE.

This is different than the “accrual method” used to calculate Nevada sports betting tax liability.
