Sports Illustrated has been a mainstay in sports media for decades now. After sports betting started becoming legal across the United States, Sports Illustrated partnered with international gaming company 888 Holdings to launch SI Sportsbook in September 2021.

At the time of writing, SI Sportsbook is live in three states: Colorado, Michigan, and Virginia. The betting operator intends to expand to New Jersey, but company reps have not yet specified when NJ bettors will be able to wager with SI Sportsbook.

In this review, we’ll cover everything users can expect from SI Sportsbook once it launches in New Jersey, what promotions may be available, and the betting markets we expect to attract the most interest. Let’s get right into it.

No, SI Sportsbook is not legal in New Jersey. The operator has plans to expand to a handful of new states (New Jersey included) within the next three years. But, they have not shared any specific launch dates.

Signing up for SI Sportsbook is an easy, straightforward process that should take about 5 minutes to complete. Once you’re all set up with your laptop or mobile device, you’re ready to get started.

  1. First, visit the SI Sportsbook website and click the red “Sign Up” button in the top-right corner of the screen.
  2. After clicking the sign-up button, you’ll be asked to confirm which state you’re located in. Since SI Sportsbook is not yet available in New Jersey, click “I don’t see my state” at the bottom of the pop-up menu.
  3. You’ll then be redirected to another page where you can choose which state you’re in (New Jersey) and enter your email address.
  4. After doing so, you’ll receive the latest news regarding SI Sportsbook’s launch, along with the latest promotions being offered.

Promos offered by SI Sportsbook New Jersey

Although SI Sportsbook is not technically available in New Jersey and we don’t have access to the specific NJ betting bonuses they’ll offer to the users, these are the types of offers we expect to see based on what SI has done in other states.

  • Welcome Bonus: New SI Sportsbook users can claim up to $200 in bonus bets using a promo code and placing a $20 wager with odds of at least +120. If said bet wins, you’ll receive eight bonus bet tokens worth $25 each. However, if the wager does not win, the sign-up bonus disappears and you receive nothing, so choose your first bet wisely.
  • Daily Odds Boosts: If you’ve ever bet on sports before, you’ll be familiar with how odds boosts work. SI Sportsbook’s daily odds boosts function similarly to those found with other betting operators. Every day, SI will provide odds boosts on certain bets, which can be found in their “Promotions” tab.
  • Perfect 10: SI Sportsbook’s Perfect 10 giveaway gives users the opportunity to win a grand prize of $10,000 if they manage to predict the correct moneyline for 10 upcoming sporting events. Even if you miss on a few, SI provides $1 bonus bets for every correct selection.

Sports you can bet on with SI Sportsbook New Jersey

Screenshot of SI New Jersey Sport section

SI Sportsbook has not yet announced which sports leagues will be available to bet on in New Jersey, but we expect every major sport (football, basketball, hockey, and baseball) to see significant play once SI Sportsbook becomes operational.

Here’s where we expect the majority of the betting action to take place.

  • Football: Betting on the NFL has become the norm for sports bettors across the country. In New Jersey, the New York Giants and New York Jets account for the majority of the NFL betting action. We expect this to continue with SI Sportsbook once it reaches the Garden State.
  • Basketball: In New Jersey, there’s a large contingency of Brooklyn Nets fans. Although they’re not technically a New Jersey-based team, the Nets originally played in New Jersey as the New Jersey Nets from 1977-2012.
  • Hockey: The New Jersey Devils are the only professional sports team found in the state and they account for the majority of the NHL betting market within NJ. The Devils moved to NJ in 1982 and have won three Stanley Cup titles since then.
  • Baseball: As is the case with the NFL, most NJ residents root for the New York-based MLB teams - the New York Yankees and New York Mets. Both teams have seen varying levels of success throughout the years, but no MLB team comes close to the number of championships held by the Yankees. With 27 World Series titles under their belt, they have 16 more rings than the next closest team; the St. Louis Cardinals have 11.

Does SI Sportsbook have a retail location in New Jersey?

SI Sportsbook does not have a retail location in New Jersey at the time of writing.


When will SI Sportsbook launch in New Jersey?

While SI Sportsbook has not given a specific date for their NJ launch, company reps have stated their sportsbook could be available in 15 states within the next three years.

Can I bet on college sports with SI Sportsbook NJ?

Yes, we expect college sports to be available for NJ users once SI Sportsbook launches. However, NJ bettors are prohibited from betting on college teams in the state, or on college sporting events taking place in NJ.

How old do you have to be to use SI Sportsbook NJ?

In New Jersey, you must be at least 21 years old to use SI Sportsbook, or any sportsbook in general.
