Sports bettors all over the country owe the state of New Jersey a huge debt of gratitude for pioneering the path to legal sports betting in the US on a state by state basis. The Garden State won a lawsuit against the federal government and most of the major sports leagues in the country in May in a case that was ultimately decided by the Supreme Court. Ever since that favorable decision came down, New Jersey has done everything in its power to have its sport betting business up and running for the 2018 NFL season.
When Does BetStars Online Sports Betting Start in New Jersey?
With sportsbooks already in place at select land-based casinos and horse racing tracks, the attention shifted to online sports betting for the games. In a recent article posted on The Stars Group website www.startsgroup.com, it was announced that the company had launched its BetStars online sports betting brand in the regulated New Jersey online gaming market.
This was made possible by a partnership with one of the best New Jersey casinos, Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City. BetStars.com will initially be available through a mobile application. This will give New Jersey customers an innovative and expansive sportsbook to go along with The Star Group’s existing online portfolio. This consists of online poker and casino offerings under the title of PokerStarsNJ and PokerStarsCasinoNJ.
Matt Primeaux is the SVP Strategy & Operations, USA with The Stars Group and he was quoted in the article as follows, “We are excited to introduce BetStars to New Jersey sports fans. As one of the largest online gaming companies in the world with millions of customers worldwide, we have successfully launched BetStars in regulated markets across Europe and look forward to expanding and enhancing our New Jersey BetStars offering, including through leveraging the Sky Betting & Gaming acquisition following approval from the UK Competition and Markets Authority, to provide a premier product and experience to our customers in this new and developing market.”

The Star Group’s proprietary technology and player account management platform will allow BetStars to provide New Jersey sports bettors with:
–One single account

BetStars also offers live in-game betting on the games with early cash-out options and added bonuses. The initial offering of sports betting opportunities includes professional and collegiate sports for football, basketball, baseball, golf, hockey, soccer, tennis along with select offerings for other sporting events.
To kickoff this launch in grand fashion, plans are in place to provide some unique player-centric promotions that are geared towards introducing new customers to everything that BetStars has to offer. This includes the online poker and online casino apps. There will be sign-up bonuses as well as an “odds boost” feature that will multiply the odds and the potential cash payouts on winning wagers.
This new foray into New Jersey sports betting is just the first step in what should become a rapidly expanding market for avid sports bettors across a number of different states in the coming months and years.
