Internet betting giant The Stars Group announed this week that they've launched their BetStars brand in the state of New Jersey, giving players in the Garden State yet another choice when it comes on where to wager.
The move comes after the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement approved of the launch, which will bring sportsbetting services to desktop and mobile devices within the state's borders. The app is available on both the iOS App Store as well as through the website for Android users under the name BetStarsNJ. The Stars Group works with the Resorts Casino Hotel to distribute their online betting options throughout the state.
Commenting on the launch Stars Group SVP of Strategy & Operations Matt Primeaux said, "We are excited to introduce BetStars to New Jersey sports fans. As one of the largest online gaming companies in the world with millions of customers worldwide, we have successfully launched BetStars in regulated markets across Europe and look forward to expanding and enhancing our New Jersey BetStars offering…"
New Jersey legalized sportsbetting in June after they emerged victorious at the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn PASPA, which banned sportsbetting in all but a few states. Since then, there's been over a hundred million dollars wagered on different events.
