Governor Phil Murphy has signed the bill. Legalized sports gambling is coming to Jersey starting Thursday! Even though Delaware beat us to the punch with legalized sports gambling starting last week, we're officially starting on Thursday. Jersey lawmakers reportedly passed the bill last Thursday.
Last month The Supreme Court shot down a ruling that prevented states other than Nevada to allow gambling on sports. Atlantic City and race tracks have been lobbying to get this ruling for several years. This could have a major impact on AC and race tracks all over America. Nevada has had exclusive sports gambling until now. I think that sports gambling should be allowed, if you don't like the issues that come with it, then don't do it! This could give a big boost to AC which gets me very excited! I LOVE Vegas, and now AC could become more like it possibly? Yes please! In the age of Internet and convenience, so many have been gambling online for years that this law blocking it seemed silly to me.
