Starting Thursday morning at 11, Borgata will be taking bets on sporting events.

Gov. Murphy officially signed the sports bill into law earlier this week. The 11AM start time comes 30 minutes after the governor made the state's first bet at Monmouth Park racetrack.

Other casinos in Atlantic City have not yet revealed any of their sports betting plans save for the Golden Nugget. The Nugget plans to roll out their sports betting in September right in time for football season.

Many hope this is yet another step in the right direction of Atlantic City's revival.
