The Hard Rock in Atlantic City has started the second phase of sportsbook development by opening a 3,800 sq ft space with fifty seats, 60 TVs and a bar where punters can enjoy various sports betting activities along with some of the popular Video Poker slots.
Joe Lupo is the President of the Hard Rock Hotel Atlantic City, and he stated that it was a very exciting time for the property as it was opening up the second phase of the sportsbook which amplified that amenity for all visitors, especially those who love baseball and want to spend a weekend in HRH Atlantic City. Lupo added that the unveiling was just one of many other positive changes that took place in the property as they made final preparations for the summer which was expected to be filled with exciting events in Atlantic City.
If you happen to be in Hard Rock, you will have an opportunity to place bets on various sports, including soccer, hockey, baseball, basketball, college sports, and more. You can either go to the sportsbook section of the Hard Rock Hotel, or you can visit their website at hardrocksports.com and place bets via their online platform which is available for the residents of New Jersey.
You can access the site either via your PC or mobile devices. The site is available both via iOS and Android as there are dedicated apps made by Hard Rock for this purpose. All you have to do is visit the App Store to download the app if you own an iOS device.

Sports Betting in the US
Placing bets on sports is a fairly new activity to the US as it has been banned for a very long time. The legislators from America lifted the ban in 2018, making it available for every state to choose whether they want to add sports betting as one of the luck-based activities. Prior to this ban, only Nevada had some sort of sports betting services that were severely controlled by various regulatory bodies and not many options were available.
All of that changed in 2018, and New Jersey was one of the first states to respond by making sports betting legal. All casinos in Atlantic City were eager to hear this and started preparing for offering various sports betting services, Hard Rock Hotel being one of them.
If you are not familiar with sports betting and you live in New Jersey, you should definitely experience it first-hand by visiting one of the available sportsbooks in your area. Although there are not many of them yet, their number is bound to grow as citizens of the US are known to be really hard-core sports fans, and betting on sports has been an inseparable part of watching sports in many countries in the world. Although it seems like a simple activity at first, there are professional punters who take this activity very seriously by analyzing data, actively watching a single sport and placing custom bets to increase the odds. In other words, there’s an entire science behind sports betting that is yet to reach the US.
Placing bets on sports, just like every other gambling activity, is regulated by official bodies which make sure that everything is in order. Therefore, Hard Rock Hotel and other casinos in the area can offer great sports betting services which are legal and regularly audited.
