It’s About Time: Borgata Launches Branded Online Sports Book
The Borgata in Atlantic City was the first casino in AC to open a live sports book. Now it’s finally got a mobile sports book under its own name.
Borgata Online—home of BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com—has officially launched an online sports betting platform. It joins the PlayMGM platform to offer up a double shot of online sports books under the MGM and Borgata brands.
BorgataSports.com is available on desktop and for download on iOS and Android devices.
“We are excited to launch BorgataSports.com,” said Marcus Glover, president and chief operating officer for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in a press release. “With our customers in mind, we have delivered the ability for existing BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com account holders to use their current credentials to sign in and access all platforms, allowing for a seamless transition between products.”
Class Act, Online or In Person
It’s kind of fitting that the Borgata casino has its own online sports book now, as it was the first Atlantic City casino to open a live sports book.
Players at BorgataSports.com will be able to make the same sports bets that are available at the live book in Atlantic City. That includes straight bets, parlay bets, futures bets and more.
Playing online also means you can make live in-game bets and take advantage of daily boosted parlays across multiple sports. Best of all, you can make a risk-free first bet at the sports book of up to $250, getting cashback on a loss.
The online sports book is a great move for the casino, but then, the Borgata always does things with class. The casino has started construction of a live sports book that will integrate an entertaining bar experience with sports wagering. The facility is expected to cost about $11 million and will debut sometime this summer.
