Revel Casino to offer eSports lounge

The Revel Casino plans to add an eSports lounge in its new resort, located in New Jersey’s Atlantic City.

US.- The Revel Casino located in Atlantic City plans to add an eSports lounge in its new resort. Planning is still in early stages and the casino area will open its doors in August.

However, final certification by the New Jersey Division of Gaming is still awaited. eSports betting would be legal on the basis that players wagering on themselves, as with wager matches engaged in throughout the competitive community, is considered skill-based.

“According to the New Jersey state criminal code, gambling is defined as staking or risking something of value upon the outcome of a contest of chance, which itself is defined as “any contest, game, pool, gaming scheme or gaming device in which the outcome depends in a material degree upon an element of chance,” reads New Jersey’s legislation on the matter.
