New Jersey sports books are up and running in various locations throughout Atlantic City, Monmouth Park Race Track in Central New Jersey and the Meadowlands Race Track just outside of New York.  SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE

The area is ripe with professional sports bettors and the books have already made moves to ban these individuals.

Twitter user El Joey Tunes refers to himself as a "marketing maker. Professional Sports bettor. College football nut. Love to share thoughts on crypto n college football" on the social media outlet.

It was on Twitter that El Joey Tunes posted a video purporting to show an employee (presumably a supervisor) of one NJ sports book demanding that he (or another pro) leave.

He tweeted:

It's a shame pro bettors like @joeytunes2 @spankysports are not welcome to bet @WilliamHillUS @WilliamHill @MonmouthPark

That tweet includes a video.

In it, an individual (whose identity is not immediately known) is speaking to someone believed to be working at Monmouth Race Track, run by William Hill out of the United Kingdom.

"I won too much," the individual is heard saying after first indicating that the book does not want his business.

"You are kicking me out and I've only been here three days," the player says.

The man behind the counter apologizes, shakes the individual's hand and provides him with a card.

"This is terrible, Man," the sports bettor is then heard saying.

In addition to the sports books, an online sports book powered by daily fantasy juggernaut DraftKings debuted this week to mixed reviews.

Initial complaints over "really bad" Major League Baseball lines appear to have subsided as DraftKings numbers began coinciding more with those of the offshore books.

DraftKings offers online sports betting throughout the state even for those visiting New Jersey, however bets can only be placed within NJ's borders.  A message warning of potential law enforcement actions appears when someone attempts to place a bet outside the state.  Initially it was appearing even when one attempted to access the app.

Payouts from out-of-state are currently made via paper check and received within two weeks, though it is still too early to determine the accuracy of this claim.
