The parlor that the Borgata has been using for a year is about a month away from being handed back to the horse-racing customers.
The posh casino announced Wednesday that its new sportsbook, the Moneyline Bar & Book, will open on Saturday, June 29.
The Borgata was the first casino in Atlantic City to accept a sports bet after the May 2018 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court legalizing sports betting outside of Nevada. The Borgata split the betting windows of its horse-racing parlor between the ponies and regular sports. It got pretty crowded in there during big games.
The casino spent more than $12 million building the new sportsbook and renovating the adjacent Level One cocktail lounge.

“When conceiving Moneyline and Level One, we knew we wanted to provide our guests with an experience that was more than a transactional venue for sports wagering," Marcus Glover, Borgata president and chief operating officer, said in a statement.
The sportsbook is 8,000 square feet and will have a “40-foot wide by 11.5-foot tall LED video wall with 17 additional 98-inch and 86-inch displays,” according to the casino. The place will feature a 35-foot long bar, six betting windows, and 19 kiosks throughout the Borgata’s property.
