Borgata announces $11M sports book/bar project

Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City announced this week that it will be adding a combination sports book and bar as part of an $11 million development project.

The new venue is scheduled to open this summer, according to a news release, supplementing the sports betting offerings at the casino hotel, which began taking legal bets in June after sports gambling became legal in the state.

“Since Borgata arrived in the Atlantic City market more than 15 years ago, we have maintained a steadfast dedication to property growth and development, with our new concept exemplifying this objective,” President and Chief Operating Officer Marcus Glover said in a prepared statement. “We are proud to have been at the forefront of legalized sports betting in New Jersey and look forward to advancing our product with an innovative gaming and entertainment experience for our guests to enjoy.”

Borgata, part of the MGM Resorts International family, also offers the playMGM NJ Sports mobile app, in partnership with GVC Holdings.
