Sports Betting Is Now Fully Legal In New Jersey

That there is New Jersey governor Phil Murphy signing into law the sports betting bill.

It passed last week and was just waiting to be signed by the gov. Under the law, sports betting will now be fully legal in New Jersey, both at casinos and racetracks, and online, the latter of which can go live in as little as 30 days (in other words, in time for football season).

Monmouth Park plans to go live on Thursday morning.

Online sports betting in New Jersey: you’ll have to be in the state to place a bet. Sites and apps will use geofencing, similar to how they do with daily fantasy sports, to determine if you are in-state.

DraftKings and William Hill are already positioned to be players here. They’ve partnered with Resorts and Monmouth Park, respectively. Online sportsbooks, like the ones we expect to see from DraftKings and William Hill, will have to be backed by licensed operations, so it remains to be seen how these sites and will look and feel. William Hill already has a live app in Nevada, but DraftKings has no sports betting platform yet, so it could be subset of its current platform, a separate app, or a co-branded experience with Resorts.

Here’s the full text of the bill:
