Fantasy Sports Wagering Moving Fast in NJFantasy Sports wagering in the state of New Jersey is now legal and bettors could not be happier. Although the option is available now, many operators will wait until the preseason to begin offering the option. Operators are currently getting their plans ready to launch the new sports betting options for football fans to enjoy.
Tom Pohlman, the Golden Nugget Atlantic City General Manager, commented on the new option by stating: “We are currently in the process of getting our plan together.” Pohlman stated that officials will be able to better determine what type of product they will be offering in the coming weeks.
The Division of Gaming Enforcement has decided that casinos will now be allowed to operate tournaments based on fantasy sports. Winnings will be paid out from the cashier cage like other casino style games. Bettors will be able to create their own team and manage how the team plays the game. The teams will be created by using players from all football teams. The statistics of the teams will be based on how the players fair during their actual games.
Players enjoy fantasy sports wagering on all sports but the most popular is definitely football. Players are very serious about their favorite football teams and players and they will take part in special drafts and events just to try and have their team win.
Peter Schoenke, the Chairman of the Fantasy Sports Trade Association based in the state of Missouri, commented to the Press of Atlantic City and stated that during the beginning of the football season, players are healthy and ready to play. Fantasy sports are about the preseason according to Schoenke.
Since the preseason is where it is at, the casinos will most likely not begin the fantasy football sports betting options when this time arrives so they can take full advantage of the hype and popularity.
