New Jersey led the charge to legalize sports betting in the United States, becoming the first state outside of Nevada to offer legal sports betting in May of 2018. Today, the state remains the largest betting market in the US while posting massive year-over-year gains.
Total revenue for online sportsbooks came in at $398 million for 2020 which was nearly $100 million higher than the total revenue in 2019. Nearly all (92%) of New Jersey's total handle came from online and mobile betting.
This article acts as your guide to all things New Jersey sports betting. We will cover the sportsbooks currently operating in the state, the latest sports betting news from the state, and a breakdown of the top promotions available to NJ residents.
As a sports bettor in New Jersey, there are a few regulations you need to be aware of. The first is that the legal betting age in New Jersey is 21. You will need to verify you are 21, with a photo ID, in order to be eligible to deposit or withdraw funds from any licensed sportsbook.
Additionally, bettors must be geolocated within the state boundaries of New Jersey. This does not mean that you have to be an NJ resident to place a bet, but it does mean that you must be in the state when you place any wager.
The last item of note is regarding betting on college sports. While you can wager on any college athletic event in New Jersey, sportsbooks are not allowed to accept wagers on any of New Jersey's college teams, the most notable of which is Rutgers University.
From an operator's standpoint, the state has a flat-rate 13% tax rate on all online sports betting revenue. For brick-and-mortar sportsbooks, that tax rate is set to 8.5% with an additional 1.25% tax set aside to market Atlantic City.
There are currently 17 online and mobile sportsbooks available in New Jersey. Every online sportsbook is required to partner with one of the state's licensed casinos. The table below lists all of the online sportsbooks operating in the state and their casino partner.
