Certainly a positive for AC.

It will be interesting to see which states jump on the opportunity to grab a piece of the illegal sports betting pie.

Could help out a town like Biloxi.

Waiting to hear my bookie's thoughts.

Very curious to see what the casino do as respects sports books. I’m sure I’m 2018 most people who desire to bet on sports already have a way to do so. With a fun festive sports book setup with online app access I think it could be huge.

I proactively booked comp rooms for March madness, hopefully they stay honored.

I would imagine every casino will have a sports betting room. This should help AC.

I think this definitely will be a positive for AC but in the long run won't affect Vegas all that much. For big sporting events such as March Madness and the Super Bowl people from NJ/NY/PA will stay local but many people will still go to Vegas.

This alone will not get me back to AC but it will a positive factor to help get me back after not visiting in several years. I am glad to see this and this in addition to the opening of the two new casinos seems like a big boon for AC. Btw, I will be visiting in July on a CET flight junket (been planned for awhile) and am hoping the betting will be up and running.

yea i'm thinking around the same timeline every casino will be up and running. I dont think there's a need for a dozen sports books in ac but sounds like NJ law will only let you have an online/mobile book if you have a brick and mortar book as well.

went ahead and proactively booked comp rooms for march madness 2019.

It's good for the casino's will mean very little to how Atlantic City looks outside the Casino's.

Good for AC. I have to admit that I didn't have much hope for the revitalization of the boardwalk area (I still question whether they even want to do anything for the rest of the town) but it appears that maybe they really want to bring it back.

I don't think it will affect Vegas much. But I am curious to see what AC will look like for March Madness...
