Ocean Resort Casino and Golden Nugget Atlantic City have now unveiled their permanent sportsbooks, just in time for Thursday’s NFL opener featuring the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles (-2.5 O/U 45) hosting the Atlanta Falcons.
Ocean Resort and its partner William Hill U.S. have unveiled a 7,500 sq.ft. sports wagering venue that features 360-degree video walls, dozens of viewing screens, two bars, lounge seating with individual charging stations, seven ticket windows and self-serve betting kiosks. An official ribbon-cutting celebration is scheduled for Thursday.
Golden Nugget opened The SportsBook on Friday replacing its temporary location. The 2,500-sq. ft. space, which occupies the former poker room, features four big screens plus 53 smaller televisions, nine betting kiosks and four ticket windows.
“There couldn’t be a better time for The SportsBook’s debut,” said Tom Pohlman, general manger of Golden Nugget. “Just in time for one of the busiest weekends of the year, players will feel like they are watching their favorite sporting event live from the comfort of the most luxurious setting New Jersey has to offer.”
