Nevada’s long monopoly as the only state with legal sports betting at land-based books came to an end last summer. In May of 2018, the US Supreme Court ruled in favor of a state’s right to regulate legal sports betting within its borders. New Jersey led the fight in that court battle. The Garden State is now poised to take the next step by leading the nation in sportsbook revenues. Recently, The Borgata Hotel Casino Spa Sportsbook Is Adding to New Jersey’s Exploding Sports Betting Industry.
