New Jersey Becomes 1st U.S. State to Take Legal Oscars Bets

 

New Jersey has become the first state to accept legal Oscars bets ahead of the ceremony on February 24. “

We have customers who aren’t huge sports fans, but enjoy playing games like bingo or roulette with us,” Mattias Stetz, chief operating officer of Rush Street Interactive, tells The AP. “We believe a new audience may be fans of the Oscars and want to make their viewing experience even more exciting by placing a bet on their favorite movie.”

Rush Street Interactive operates PlaySugarHouse.com, which has Roma as the favorite to win Best Picture. The book also picked Alfonso Cuaron to take a statue home for directing Roma, at minus-1,000, while Glenn Close is an odds-on favorite for Best Actress for The Wife.
