Latest News

Fanatics Betting and Gaming launched its online casino and sportsbook in New Jersey and went live for players on May 8. Fanatics Betting is a subsidiary company of Fanatics Holdings Inc., a global digital sports platform, essentially the Amazon of sports memorabilia and attire, along with a plethora of other endeavors. 

Players in the Garden State can download Fanatics Sportsbook on iOS and Android to start enjoying its content. 

On April 3, 2024, Fanatics Betting finalized its procurement of the U.S. business of PointsBet for $225 million. In the rapidly growing sports betting market, this acquisition gave Fanatic Betting a notable leg up, quickly gaining access to many US states. This makes Fanatics Sportsbook available in almost 95% of the legal online sports bettor market in the United States. 

“The acquisition of the US businesses of PointsBet has super charged our expansion plans,” said Fanatics Betting and Gaming CEO Matt King. “In addition to our migration of PointsBet customers and technology to the Fanatics Sportsbook and Casino platform, we have also added an incredibly talented team of passionate leaders from the ranks of PointsBet USA that have already made an impact on our business.”

The state of New Jersey is the last PointsBet state to switch over to Fanatics Sportsbook. Additionally, NJ is the 20th state for Fanatics Sportsbook and the fourth state for Fanatics Casino. For all PointsBet customers, the usernames, account balances, passwords, responsible gaming settings, and rewards points will automatically transfer to the Fanatics Sportsbook.
