I would say the first to open would be The Hilton. Can any one name some others that are likely to be the first or in the running?

Can none be an option.  Truth is and the truth hurts that this will never get off the ground.  I'd think the casino suits will all advise their cleints (casinos) to wait for someone else to make the first move and it never happens or it never gets implemented because of federal involvement.

I'll put aside the Fed hurdle which I don't believe will be overcome anytime soon. The Taj might be a god fit as they don't have any affiliation with any Vegas gambling property (could be wrong). I'm not sure where inside the property they could put a SP in short order without significant expense. The Horse Book is small and located in the PokerRoom

I haven't been to the Trop Poker Room in a few years but they had a fairly large area in the back, right hand side as you entered the Poker Room which wasn't ever very busy except for Tournaments. The area had TV's for Horse Racing and i assume Horse tellers which could take SP bets. Beef up the TV's and off they go

I don't think there will ever be legal sportsbetting in AC.

Depends. I mean places like the Borgata, Revel etc will want elaborate fancy ones...other lower end casinos will probably settle for smaller type, so Id say one of the lower level ones

the revel seems to be the one that will benefits the most since gov. christe has his hand in the pot giving 260 million of the states money for a 20% stake in the revels  profits. like I said christe said by sept there will sports betting in ac. follow the money. the bookies in new jersey will get hit hard by this and you will have a lot of guys from new york going to ac now just gamble on sports.

I would bet Revel has a place already in place for this....if they didnt prepare for this when building that place they are stupid.

Bally's racebook is up on the 6th floor convention center ,could see them having the room to expand..Other than the convention rooms,there is  just the diamond lounge and a smoking room,business room.

Then again they just shut down the whole wild west theme on Boardwalk level..Ample space and existing bar for a decent book.But do they really want 5 dollar bettors coming in off the street? Nah

You would think the Borgata would open one up.but thier racebook is small and though the huge poker room is just off it-it is seperated by escaltors to the food court..

Harrah's- smallest racebook but available space down by the brigantine entrance,just keno still maybe and a credit card cashier down there..Would make a nice similar side entrance much like the Rio in LV.

And Mook,you're right,garbage maybe this was part of deal and they open the first while CET and the B scramble to keep up..if they didn't plan on this,they did not consult the right people

It's not going anywhere, they need one grinder joint in AC.  It is quite funny when you play a couple of blacks at the lower end tables.  You would think someone pushed out a $10K  wager.

On second thought, the AC Race Track. They have the TV's and Tellers, only thing missing is the guy with the chalk board posting the odds

ohh  and to mark  it will happen  if nj starts taking bets and then the federal goverment shuts them down then the people with losing betting tickets can sue the the state of nj for running an illegal gambling operation. new jersey does not want that to happen. finally the east coast will have legal sportsbook.
