Construction work for the US$11 million project will begin next week as the Borgata gets ready to expand its offering.
US.- Atlantic City’s Borgata casino, the first venue to take sports betting in New Jersey, is set to expand its offering with a brand new sports bar. The construction of the US$11 million project will begin next week in order to expand the venue’s sportsbook and develop what they have called a “destination bar.”
The new bar will be the main location at the Borgata casino, which launched its sports betting business in its temporary space soon after PASPA got revoked.
Borgata’s president and chief operating officer Marcus Glover said that the casino operator is “proud to have been at the forefront of legalised sports betting in New Jersey and look forward to advancing our product with an innovative gaming and entertainment experience for our guests to enjoy.”
The Borgata casino, which is operated by MGM Resorts International, is one of many venues that have jumped in the business. Soon after opening in June, the Ocean Resort Casino also opened a sports book, Resorts Casino joined in August, while Bally’s, Tropicana and Harrah’s have been operating out of temporary space and plan to expand in the near future.
