Is New Jersey’s Reign At An End?
Estimations suggest that roughly 20-25% of New Jersey’s sports wager handles are from New York residents crossing the border to bet.
Since New York is on track to have state-wide sports betting by 2022, New Jersey may see a substantial decrease to its monthly handle.
New Jersey is currently on top of the legal sports betting market, but as more surrounding states launch their own mobile sportsbooks, New Jersey may give up this ground.
