Borgata to open new sportsbook by end of June

Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, the first casino to offer legalized sports betting in New Jersey, announced Wednesday it will be debuting a new sportsbook and lounge at the end of June.

Borgata said The Moneyline Bar & Book will open June 29 as well as the Level One Cocktail Bar & Lounge, an adjoining venue connected to the sportsbook by an escalated corridor.

“Since Borgata arrived in the market more than 15 years ago, we have maintained a steadfast dedication to property growth and development, and we believe our new concepts confirm our position,” Marcus Glover, president and chief operating officer, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, said.

“When conceiving Moneyline and Level One we knew we wanted to provide our guests with an experience that was more than a transactional venue for sports wagering. We felt Borgata’s guests deserved something that would advance the market by bringing together sports, culinary, entertainment, gaming, and nightlife into a destination experience they can enjoy seven nights a week,” he said.

The Moneyline sportsbook, designed by Nelson Worldwide, is comprised of 8,000 square feet with a 35-foot bar with 19 built-in slot machines. The space will also have six betting windows, interactive sports betting kiosks, a 40-foot wide by 11.5-foot tall LED video wall, 17 TV displays, high-top tables with device charging capabilities, U-shaped booths, a VIP lounge and more.

Level One is a 3,600-square-foot venue for high-end gaming and entertainment, and innovative cocktails, the Borgata said. It will feature customization seating, live music, DJ entertainment, game nights and more.

The Borgata said it has added more than $12 million into developing the casino-resort.
