Golden Nugget Atlantic City

Golden Nugget Atlantic City could become the first casino in the United States whose revenue from internet gaming matches or exceeds earnings from table games and slots.

ATLANTIC CITY — Two casino properties will open sports wagering windows Wednesday morning.

Golden Nugget Atlantic City will begin taking sports bets at 10 a.m., the casino announced Tuesday. Resorts Casino Hotel will open its sports book at 11 a.m.

With the entry of Golden Nugget into the Atlantic City sports betting market, all three of the marina casinos — Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City being the other two — will offer the new gaming amenity.

Resorts announced its intention to open a land-based sports book last week. Resorts and sports book partner DraftKings were the first Atlantic City casino to offer legalized online and mobile sports betting in New Jersey, having launched the platform Aug. 6.

Borgata was the first casino to offer sports betting, opening to the public June 14. Ocean Resort Casino was the second casino to have a sports book when the property opened June 27.

Wild Wild West Casino inside Bally’s Atlantic City opened a sports book July 30, followed by Harrah’s on Aug.1.

After Wednesday’s dual openings, only Caesars Atlantic City, Tropicana Atlantic City and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City will not have sports books.

Bally’s, Caesars and Harrah’s are all operated by Caesars Entertainment Corp.
