Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has launched a new online sports betting platform in partnership with London-listed GVC Holdings. offers New Jersey players the same range of sports bets available at the venue’s Borgata Race & Sports Book, including straight bets, parlay bets, and futures bets.

Additional online features include the ability to place live in-game bets, daily boosted parlays across multiple sports, and multiple deposit methods.

“We are excited to launch,” said Borgata president and chief operating officer Marcus Glover. “With our customers in mind, we have delivered the ability for existing and account holders to use their current credentials to sign in and access all platforms, allowing for a seamless transition between products.”

Borgata made history last June when it became the first Atlantic City casino to accept a legal sports wager under new sports betting regulations in New Jersey.

Soon after accepting its first inaugural bet, Borgata launched the playMGM NJ Sports mobile sports betting app.

Through its existing partnership with GVC, joins the playMGM NJ Sports app in featuring a full range of US and selected international sports with customers able to sign-up, deposit and withdraw cash directly from their mobile devices from any location in New Jersey.

Borgata recently announced that it began construction of a new venue that will integrate an entertaining bar experience with sports wagering. Adding more than $11m in development to Borgata’s resort, the destination bar will make its anticipated debut this summer.

Shares in GVC Holdings plc (LSE:GVC) were trading up 0.55 per cent to 588.80 pence per share in London Wednesday.
