New Jersey Sports Betting: Mobile and Apps

New Jersey has been a pioneer in terms of the online sports betting market in the United States. Many New Jersey residents are wondering where and how they can bet on sports. Because online sports betting was legalized by the state, the only requirement is that you are within state lines when you place a bet.

The next step is figuring out which sportsbook to place your bets at. Luckily, New Jersey has a long list of sportsbooks operating within the state:

FanDuel Sportsbook

Summary: FanDuel has been a giant in the daily fantasy sports (DFS) space, and has now shifted their mobile/app expertise to sports betting. FanDuel was acquired by European sports betting giant Paddy Power Betfair, and have combined their expertise to put out an excellent mobile app and site.

DraftKings Sportsbook

Summary: DraftKings Sportsbook is another company that has used their DFS expertise and customer base to launch into sports betting. As the chief competitor to FanDuel in the DFS space, DraftKings Sportsbook continues the rivalry with sports betting. DraftKings Sportsbook has one of the best sports betting apps available on the market, with a 4.8/5 rating in the iOS app store.

William Hill Sportsbook

William Hill logo

Summary: William Hill Sportsbook has been a mainstay in the sports betting industry. With a name recognized in both Europe and the United States, William Hill continues to push for market share in the industry. While their odds are generally better than the rest of the industry, the app, visually speaking, leaves a little to be desired.

PointsBet Sportsbook

Pointsbet Logo

Summary: PointsBet Sportsbook comes over from Australia with a new twist on sports betting with their PointsBetting product. PointsBetting means you win the more “correct” you are, and lose the more “off” you are. For example, if you bet $10 on the Over and the final score was 10 points over the line, you would win $100.

BetStars Sportsbook

Summary: BetStars is the sports betting product by their parent company PokerStars. They offer generous promotions and their Star Rewards programs gives users a reason to keep coming back.

SugarHouse Sportsbook

SugarHouse logo

Summary: SugarHouse, through their affiliation with Monmouth Park, offers New Jersey bettors a solid option. While their site and app are nothing fancy, they get the job done when it comes to execution.

MGM Sportsbook

Play MGM Logo

Summary: MGM is a name that any Vegas sports bettor should recognize. With extremely competitive odds and years of bookmaking experience, MGM offers a trusted brand. The only downside is the app. While it is functional, the look and feel are very basic.

Caesars Sportsbook

Caesars Logo

Summary: Caesars, another Vegas sportsbook mainstay, offers a very similar experience to MGM. Also similar to MGM, their app leaves a lot to be desired.

888 Sportsbook

888 Logo

Summary: 888 Sport comes over from Europe to serve the US market.
