Fubo Sportsbook launches statewide in N.J.

First mobile sportsbook to integrate with live TV streaming platform enters one of the top U.S. sports betting markets

Fubo Sportsbook officially launched on Wednesday in New Jersey after successfully completing a soft play phase of the state’s Division of Gaming Enforcement regulatory process.

Fubo Gaming — the subsidiary of the live TV streaming platform FuboTV Inc. — said that, effective immediately, those 21 years of age and older across the Garden State can place  wagers on thousands of live and future professional and out-of-state collegiate sporting events using the Fubo Sportsbook app on iOS and Android or on the website.

The launch of Fubo’s sportsbook kicks off just in time for the 2022-23 football season, one of the busiest sports betting periods.

Fubo Gaming said it intends to continue iterating the app, launching additional features that will further integrate wagering into the FuboTV platform, and said users in the Garden State will soon be able to experience Watch & Wager, which leverages FuboTV’s first-party user data to recommend relevant bets based upon what viewers are streaming — even as they change the channel.

New users in New Jersey who register with Fubo Sportsbook can use the code “FUBONJ” to take advantage of a Bet $20, Get $150 promo offer and one month free of FuboTV.

“Launching Fubo Sportsbook in New Jersey is an important early step in the development of our integrated platform, which includes a recently improved user experience and enhanced product capabilities,” Scott Butera, president, Fubo Gaming, stated. “As one of the largest and most established sports betting markets in the U.S., New Jersey will allow Fubo to analyze and efficiently develop the most engaging product features that are focused on driving streaming customers into wagering. New Jersey is known for having deeply passionate sports fans, who, we believe, will enjoy our one-of-a-kind immersive sports wagering and viewing experience in time for football season.”
