New Jersey Casinos Prepare for Super Bowl LIII Sports BettingLast Edited:
This year's Super Bowl will be the first time New Jersey casinos will be able to offer sports betting, but Las Vegas isn't worried about the extra competition.
The weekend is worth hundreds of millions of dollars to the Nevada city, which draws tens of thousands of people for the big game weekend.
Tourism officials and casino operators say Las Vegas will continue to be a Super Bowl destination because it has more to offer than just sports books.
The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority says about 306,000 people are expected in Las Vegas during Super Bowl weekend, with a projected economic impact of $426 million.
Casinos in eight states, including New Jersey, are accepting wagers on the game this year after the United States Supreme Court ruled to overturn a law that once prohibited them.
