Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has said it will begin construction of a new venue that will integrate an entertaining bar experience with sports wagering.
Costing $11m, the destination bar will make its anticipated debut this summer.
“Since Borgata arrived in the Atlantic City market more than 15 years ago, we have maintained a steadfast dedication to property growth and development, with our new concept exemplifying this objective,” said Marcus Glover, President & Chief Operating Officer for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. “We are proud to have been at the forefront of legalized sports betting in New Jersey and look forward to advancing our product with an innovative gaming and entertainment experience for our guests to enjoy.”
Borgata made history last June when it became the first Atlantic City casino to accept a legal sports wager under new sports betting regulations in New Jersey. The historic wager came just three days after NJ Governor Phil Murphy signed a bill passed unanimously by the State Legislature, creating a regulated environment where licensed casinos may establish legal sports books.
Since accepting that first inaugural bet, Borgata launched the playMGM NJ Sports mobile sports-betting app in New Jersey. In partnership with GVC Holdings, the playMGM NJ Sports app features a full range of U.S. and selected international sports with customers able to sign-up, deposit and withdraw cash directly from their mobile devices from any location in New Jersey.
