After submissions from the public, there were five finalists: Blackjacks, Gamblers, High Rollers, Jackpot, and Royals.

Thursday evening, the official name was revealed: Atlantic City Blackjacks.

The Blackjacks name won the vote by a narrow margin, with 36% of the total votes. Gamblers came in as a close second at 31%, Royals at 13%, Jackpot at 11%, and High Rollers at 9%. There were over 6,500 unique votes submitted.

Michael Santaniello, a student from Rider University, was the first to enter the team name and won the ultimate Atlantic City Blackjacks prize pack including 2019 inaugural season tickets, an official team game helmet, and a personalized home game jersey.
