Tropicana Launches A New Sportsbook In Atlantic City

NJ online sports betting is about to greet its newest sportsbook in Tropicana AC. This increases the venues to nine in New Jersey, seven of which are located in Atlantic City.

Some Details About The Newest NJ Online Sports Betting Venue At Tropicana

Besides the fact it will soon be operating, most of the details about the newest NJ online sports betting site still remain unknown.

Another known fact is that Tropicana AC petitioned to the Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) in the Garden State for a transactional waiver. It will allow the casino to operate temporarily until the vetting process is over.

It’s almost sure that Tropicana will soon be fully licensed. Currently, thanks to the transactional waiver the newest NJ sports betting place can provide a complete list of wagering options.

Eldorado Resorts, the new holders of the casino, have closed a deal with William Hill US.

Monmouth Park Sports Book by William Hill and William Hill Sportsbook at Ocean Resort are just a few examples of the successful collaboration of the sportsbook operator.

We’ll just have to wait a little bit to find out if Tropicana will become the next co-branded NJ online sports betting venue.

Steve Callender, the General Manager of Tropicana, revealed some of the casino’s sports betting plots in a press release. He claimed that there is a new site under construction in the North Tower Casino, designed to receive wagers. Callender promised to announce more information about the brand new NJ sports betting venue in Tropicana AC pretty soon.

The General Manager expressed that they are more than happy to provide their clients with another NJ sports betting site, that will be as amusing and thriving as all the other events Tropicana AC has to offer.

With this being all the information so far, we must admit that we aren’t surprised that Tropicana will be the next sportsbook in Atlantic City. Although the company remains silent for the most part, there were some hints that pointed us in this direction.

Changes Are On The Way for Tropicana

No one can deny that change is a good thing. Tropicana is going through that at a fast pace, welcoming a new era for the company. It doesn’t come alone and that is exactly the case with the AC casino, as with the new owners came new changes as well.  

Operating for almost 40 years now, Tropicana went through a lot. Having different owners, a couple of rebrandings – nothing seemed to be final for the casino. But Eldorado didn’t take a lot of time to think things through, they started acting right away.

On the next day, after closing the deal, Eldorado released all NJ online sports betting employees.

Things couldn’t be more hectic and the release of an entire department brought even more stress and anxiety.

This act clearly showed that the Atlantic City Casino is ready to enter its new era on a clean slate. This radical reorganization might turn out to be a good thing and help for a long-awaited rebirth of Tropicana AC.

Just like Tropicana, the NJ online sports betting industry went through a complete makeover recently.

If you think about it, just a couple of months ago, sports betting was allowed in just a couple of states and now things look very different.

After online betting in New Jersey became regulated in June 2018, the sports activity increased. No wonder that Tropicana casino was awaiting its new holder to enter its new chapter.

NJ Online Sports Betting Venues In Atlantic City

There are 6 sportsbooks in Atlantic City, located in the following establishments:

  • William Hill Sportsbook @ Ocean Resort
  • Golden Nugget Sportsbook
  • Resorts Sports Book
  • Harrah’s Sportsbook
  • Borgata Race & Sports
  • Bally’s Wild Wild West Sportsbook

As soon as the sportsbook at Tropicana is launched, Hard Rock AC and Caesars will be the last two properties remaining with a retail sports betting site.

Hard Rock Atlantic City Casino prepares to set up a sportsbook this year and Caesars already has two at its other properties – Harrah’s and Bally’s.

With seven NJ Online Sports Betting venues, Atlantic City is ready to join the competition with Nevada in the hopes of becoming America’s top sports betting place.
