Caesars and Tropicana Take First Steps into Sports Betting in N.J.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -

Caesars and the Tropicana are joining New Jersey's growing sports betting market, and FanDuel's mobile betting app has gone live.

On Thursday, September 6th, Tropicana announced it reached a deal with William Hill Race and Sports Book to offer sports betting in the near future but did not give an exact date for the launch.

Hours later, the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement said that Caesars has been approved to launch online sports betting at its casino.

A spokesperson for Caesars Entertainment says the online launch is expected soon but could not give a firm time for it.

Meanwhile, FanDuel began accepting sports betting on its app yesterday.

New Jersey gambling outlets took in $40.6 million in sports wagers in July, the first full month it was legal.
