The sportsbook, Bet365 has finally obtained its license from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement. Bet365 also signed a contract with the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City as part of their licensing agreement.
Bet365 was founded in 2000 by siblings Denise and John Coates in Stoke-on-Trent in northern England. Twenty years later it enjoys a revenue of almost three billion dollars, employs over 4,000 people and operates in multiple markets across Europe and Asia.
Until now US customers have not been able to use Bet365 legally. Now, residents of New Jersey are the first in the country to enjoy the services of one of the world’s most trusted sportsbooks.
One way in which the sportsbook has built its brand is its commitment to offering secure payment methods. In New Jersey they offer Skrill, Visa, MasterCard and PayNearMe for deposits and withdrawals.
Bet365 is well known for its sponsorship of professional sports teams around the world. In the US they have already become the MLB’s largest official gaming operator. Joining forces with such a large organization has further cemented its reputation as credible and shows that the sportsbook means business in the US.
