Sports Betting in New Jersey


How can I bet in NJ?


You can bet with any of the above sportsbooks on their online sites or with their apps. All major Jersey sportsbooks have apps usable on iPhone and Android. 

When using our Best Books section you’ll find the greatest sportsbooks in NJ and receive access to Dimers’ exclusive promotional codes. Depending on your choice, you will receive either a risk-free/free bet, deposit bonus or a bonus bet, just for using Dimers. So, before you sign up and deposit with any New Jersey sportsbook, check these reviews.

If in-person betting is your thing, there are several casinos and racetracks where you can lay down a wager. Most retail books are based in Atlantic City, so The Meadowlands Racetrack might be an easy option on NFL Sunday’s.

What do I need to do to join a sportsbook in NJ?


Currently, there are very few restrictions to joining a sportsbook in New Jersey. You must be a Mets fan, no we’re just kidding! We wouldn’t wish that upon you.

As we mentioned above, you’ll need to register online before you can deposit money into your account and wager. This is to validate your identity and sports betting account [link to why do they need my SSN].

You must also enable geolocation if you want to bet on sports. New Jersey sportsbooks must be able to verify you are in fact within the state before any wager is placed. 

Most books will ask to use your location when you first open their betting app, just make sure you allow it, otherwise you won’t be able to bet. 

If you were to travel to a state where sports betting is legal, you would be able to use your sportsbook app — unless it is state-specific. If that is the case, you may need to download the other state’s version once within their lines. If your sportsbook is universal, then you’ll be able to bet online, no extra downloads and no problems!

Good news too if you’re visiting Jersey, you’re able to bet so long as you register online. If you’re within state lines, you’re welcome to bet in Devils country. 

How old do I have to be to use a NJ sportsbook?


You must be at least 21 years of age to use a sportsbook, or bet on sports in the state of New Jersey. This includes betting either in a casino or online. Verifying your age is a prerequisite of opening an online betting account. If you’re not 21, there’s no getting around it.

What sports can’t I bet on in NJ?


Thankfully, betting on college sports is legalized in NJ, but there are some limits to what can you bet on.

College Sports

Unfortunately you cannot bet on college sports taking place in New Jersey, nor a team from the Garden State. This means the likes of Princeton and Rutgers are out of bounds. However, you can bet on all college teams and sports outside of your state.

High School Sports

Understandably there is no scope to bet on high school sports anywhere in New Jersey.

Now you’ve learned all there is to know about the best sportsbooks in New Jersey, so what now? Sign up with one of our trusted books to receive an exclusive promotion and get started. Maybe the New York Giants finishing atop the NFC East? It’s worth a shot!
