Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa has launched its new digital sports betting platform BorgataSports.com, offering an array of striking features available on desktop and for download on iOS and Android devices.
“We are excited to launch BorgataSports.com,” said Marcus Glover, President & Chief Operating Officer for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. “With our customers in mind, we have delivered the ability for existing Borgata Online Casino and Borgata Online Poker account holders to use their current credentials to sign in and access all platforms, allowing for a seamless transition between products.”
Customers using BorgataSports.com will have the ability to make the same varieties of sports bets as are available at Borgata Race & Sports Book, including straight bets, parlay bets and futures bets. Additional online features include the ability to place live in-game bets, daily boosted parlays across multiple sports, multiple deposit methods and a risk-free first bet of up to $250 real cash back.
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.
Soon after accepting that first inaugural bet, Borgata launched the playMGM NJ Sports mobile sports-betting app in New Jersey. In partnership with GVC Holdings, BorgataSports.com joins the playMGM NJ Sports app in featuring 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.
As a part of MGM Resorts International, Borgata brings the wealth of that company’s sportsbook experience to its operation. MGM Resorts International possesses more than 25 years of sports wagering operations experience in Nevada, where the company’s resorts combine to write more than 4 million sports wagers each year with annual handle in excess of $1 billion. Borgata recently announced that it began construction of a new venue that will integrate an entertaining bar experience with sports wagering. Adding more than $11 million in development to Borgata’s resort, the destination bar will make its anticipated debut this summer.
