Borgata casino launches mobile sports betting in New Jersey


ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — Atlantic City's Borgata casino has begun taking sports bets via mobile phones.

The casino launched mobile sports betting for Android phones shortly after noon on Wednesday.

The first bet it took was $50 on the Philadelphia Eagles to win their season-opening game.

The Borgata says other mobile phones will be supported on its playMGM NJ Sports app shortly.

The Borgata was the first Atlantic City casino to offer sports betting in June. Since then, five casinos and two racetracks offer it, with others still seeking approval from state regulators.

New Jersey gambling outlets took in $40.6 million in sports wagers in July, the first full month it was legal.
