The Latest: Sports betting begins at Harrah’s Atlantic City
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) – The Latest on Harrah’s becoming Atlantic City’s fourth casino to offer sports betting (all times local):
A fourth Atlantic City casino has begun taking sports bets.
Harrah’s started accepting bets at 11 a.m. Wednesday, two days after Bally’s, its sister property in Atlantic City, began accepting them.
Longtime customer Alan Kallman, of Monroe Township, placed the first bet at Harrah’s, putting $25 on the New York Yankees to win the World Series.
The U.S. Supreme Court in May sided with New Jersey and struck down a decades-old federal ban on sports gambling outside of Nevada and three other states.
In addition to Harrah’s and Bally’s, the Borgata and Ocean Resort casinos in Atlantic City and the Monmouth Park and Meadowlands horse racing tracks now offer sports betting.
