Borgata was a part of legal sports betting history in the U.S. when when it became the first Atlantic City casino to accept a legal sports wager under new sports betting regulations in New Jersey. Since accepting that inaugural bet, Borgata has been proceeding forward with its sports betting offerings launching the BorgataSports.com website and mobile sports-betting app.
The latest announcement for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is the June 29 opening for Moneyline Bar & Book and Level One Cocktail Bar & Lounge. Together the additions are reported to be adding more than $12 million in development to the casino-resort, and the debut reinforces Borgata’s position as the market’s leading destination for sports and entertainment.
Designed by Nelson Worldwide with the sports enthusiast in-mind, guests will be welcomed into Moneyline Bar & Book by a 40-foot wide by 11.5-foot tall LED video wall with 17 additional 98″ and 86″ displays surrounding the 8,000-square-foot venue. A 35-foot-long bar with 19 built-in slot machines centers Moneyline under a distinctive light feature inspired by a coach’s playbook. Guests can grab a seat at the bar in a flex-back gaming stool or choose one of several high-top tables with device-charging capabilities, plush U-shaped booths, or elevate their experience with banquette seating in the VIP lounge. In addition to six betting windows, guests may place their bet at one of Moneyline’s interactive sports betting kiosks.
“Since Borgata arrived in the market more than 15 years ago, we have maintained a steadfast dedication to property growth and development, and we believe our new concepts confirm our position,” said Marcus Glover, president and chief operating officer for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. “When conceiving Moneyline and Level One we knew we wanted to provide our guests with an experience that was more than a transactional venue for sports wagering. We felt Borgata’s guests deserved something that would advance the market by bringing together sports, culinary, entertainment, gaming, and nightlife into a destination experience they can enjoy seven nights a week.”
In partnership with GVC Holdings, BorgataSports.com features a full range of U.S. and selected international sports with customers able to sign-up, deposit and withdraw cash directly from their mobile devices from any location in New Jersey. As part of the MGM Resorts International portfolio, Borgata brings the wealth of the company’s sports book experience to its operation. MGM Resorts has more than 25 years of sports wagering operations experience in Nevada, where the company’s resorts combine to write more than 4 million sports wagers each year with annual handle in excess of $1 billion.
