Atlantic City‘s casinos are to celebrate March Madness – the US college basketball tournament – for the first time since the legalisation of sports betting in New Jersey.

The Casino Association of New Jersey said that Atlantic City’s casinos will add to what is already an “action-packed month” in the city.

 

“Atlantic City’s casinos welcome baseball and basketball fans to place their bets in the exciting month of March,” said Kevin Ortzman, president of the Casino Association of New Jersey.

 

“This represents our first full season of baseball and first March Madness tournament since the legalisation of sports betting last year, and Atlantic City’s sports books are ready.”
