About NEW JERSEY Sports Betting
New Jersey was the state that led the charge in overturning PASPA, and it began offering sports betting on June 14, 2018. DraftKings Sportsbook became the first legal online option in The Garden State when it launched in August 2018. It operates under the casino license of Resorts Atlantic City and has since opened a retail sportsbook at that location. Anyone who is at least 21 years of age, has a valid United States Social Security Number and is physically within the state of New Jersey can bet with DraftKings Sportsbook in NJ.
Sports betting in New Jersey is regulated by the state’s Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE). With that, New Jersey has regulations that may differ from other states. For instance, the state prohibits wagering on collegiate sporting events that take place in New Jersey or involve a New Jersey college or university team.
DraftKings Sportsbook offers dozens of American and international sports for users to bet on. There are also many different bet types that are unique to DraftKings such as live, in-game betting, Sportsbook Pools and Teasers+.
