Two Caesars Entertainment Properties In Atlantic City To Start Taking Sports Bets

Two Atlantic City casinos owned by Caesars Entertainment are joining New Jersey’s sports betting market this week and another two in Mississippi will open in August.

Bally’s casino in Atlantic City started taking sports bets Monday and its sister casino Harrah’s will start taking them on Wednesday.

The company said it will soon offer mobile sports betting as well, but it didn’t set a timetable.

The gambling industry is closely watching to see which casino will be the first in New Jersey to offer online sports betting following a ruling in May by the U.S. Supreme Court that cleared the way for all 50 states to join Nevada by allowing legalized sports betting.
