ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — Atlantic City’s Hard Rock casino is now taking sports bets online after the company received permission late Friday from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement to do so.

On Saturday, the Hard Rock began "soft play" testing of equipment and systems.

In-person betting will be available in the coming days ahead of Super Bowl 53.

Hard Rock will be the eighth of the city’s nine casinos to offer sports betting and probably the last for now. Caesars does not have it, but its customers are served by the sports book at its neighboring sister property, Bally’s.

Following the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in May that abolished decades of prohibition against sports betting, New Jersey has been the primary beneficiary to date.

More than $1.24 billion has been bet on sporting events in New Jersey since such wagering began in mid-June.  The industry has generated just over $94 million in revenue for casinos and tracks while the state received $10.4 million in sports betting taxes.

Outside of Nevada and New Jersey, only Mississippi, West Virginia, Rhode Island, New Mexico, Delaware and Pennsylvania currently host sportsbook operations.
