Atlantic City sports gaming began with tremendous interest on the first day of the NFL season. Without much fanfare or advertising, the Ocean resort casino in Atlantic City had a long line of people interested in sports betting for the first NFL season where sports betting (outside of Nevada) would be allowed. The seaside resort recognized an influx of players for the first NFL weekend who were focused on being able to bet on college and pro football (in addition to pro baseball) in an establishment that served all of the "gamers" interests.
Much anticipation and success is foreseen as Atlantic City provides more attractions and begins to market in greater detail not only sports betting but traditional and non-traditional (e.g. esports) casino attractions, restaurants, social clubs and concerts.
