NJ Sportsbooks Can Stay Open Past 10 pm on Super Bowl Sunday
By Lou Monaco

Despite a 35% capacity limit and an early close for food and beverage service, sportsbooks in Atlantic City are doing their best to meet the needs of their guests and patrons on Super Bowl Sunday.

Although food and beverage service will be halted at 10 p.m. per Gov. Phil Murphy’s mandated coronavirus protocols, sportsbooks can remain open past 10 p.m. as that is considered gaming space. So you can still watch the game and make Super Bowl betting wagers, you just won’t be able to order food or a drink after 10 p.m. in those areas where service is provided.

Here is just a sampling of what some Atlantic City casinos and sportsbooks are providing for Sunday’s Super Bowl:

Resorts Casino

You can bet at DraftKings Sportsbook with ultra-high definition LED video walls, 18 self-service betting kiosks and five live teller windows. DraftKings will also be providing drink specials throughout the day including any draft beer for $4.

Resorts is also providing a Big Game Room Package for $99 that includes an overnight stay, $25 dining credit, $20 beverage credit valid at Bar One or Sportsbook Bar, $25 table game free bet and a 2 p.m. ET late check out the day after the game.

Currently, Resorts has a casino floor contest where you Guess the Number of Footballs in the Container to win up to $500 in slot cash or match play. You can enter your guess one time per day at any kiosk up until Sunday. At 6 p.m. Sunday night, the 10 people who guess the closest to the actual number without going over will win $500 slot cash or match play and if you guess the exact number, you win $1,000.

Caesars Wild West City

Reservations are available for the William Hill Sportsbook at Wild Wild West, as well as Boardwalk Saloon to have a seat by the big screen for the big NFL betting event in a socially-distanced viewing atmosphere. DJ Vito G will be on stage from 2-6 p.m. before the game starts.

Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa

Although the Race and Sportsbook and the BetMGM Sportsbook are completely reserved for the game, all bars in and around the floor will be on a first come/first serve basis. In the sportsbooks, they will have some giveaways including sports memorabilia and the casino will be holding two Big Game sweepstakes on both Saturday and Super Bowl Sunday.
