New Jersey has been the dominant sports betting market in the United States since launching sports betting in June 2018. As of 2024, there has been more than $45 billion in New Jersey sports betting handle, almost $8 billion more than the next closest competitor (Nevada).

This page covers the in-person sports betting locations in New Jersey, including where to gamble and any potential new gambling locations. For clarity’s sake, we will use the phrases “retail sportsbook” and “in-person betting location” interchangeably. Though the definition of retail sportsbook covers a venue owned by the sports betting operator, the term has been used colloquially to include all in-person betting locations.

List of all retail sportsbooks in New Jersey

Below is a list of all the retail sportsbooks and in-person sports betting locations in New Jersey.

What types of sports betting locations exist in New Jersey?

There are two types of sports betting locations that exist in New Jersey: casinos and race tracks. The state’s betting regulations allow up to 12 casinos and up to four racetracks to hold sports betting licenses, though, at the moment, only nine casinos and three race tracks have sports gambling operations.


Sports betting at casinos has typically been the go-to option for gamblers as casinos were better equipped for legal sports betting than online operators early on. While the gap has narrowed with the rise in online sports betting (with around 80% of sports wagers made online, according to USA Today), New Jersey casinos have reported consistently strong sports betting numbers over the past few years.

CBS News reported in November 2023, six of New Jersey’s nine casinos reported a year-over-year increase in sports betting revenue. Borgata led the way in revenue at $97 million while Hard Rock saw the greatest increase at just over 26%.

Race tracks

Sports betting and horse race betting have helped support each other, especially in recent years where horse racing has seen a decline in popularity. Tracks around the country have struggled to stay open without supplemental revenue from sports betting.

However, New Jersey horse race tracks have, to a degree, bucked the national trend in recent years. The New Jersey Racing Commission (which oversees horse racing in the state) saw a 10.12% increase in live betting handle in 2022, the most recent year for which data is available.

Are there any more sports betting locations opening in New Jersey soon?

New Jersey is not planning to open more sports betting locations soon because New York is planning to open three new casinos in the near future, including in the downstate area. If a new casino in New York opens a sports betting location, it could pull revenue from New Jersey betting locations by being a more convenient option for many in the state.

Until we know for certain where the New York locations will be, investing in new sports betting locations in New Jersey would be quite risky. However, if this status changes, we will update this section accordingly.
