Why You Should Bet At Hard Rock

Quite simply the Hard Rock is cool and the loyalty scheme offers comps at the live casino. The software is fine, the promotions are fine, the welcome bonus is fine. The brand is what is outstanding, and the dedication to a fun experience.


The Hard Rock Casino in Atlantic City opened on June 28, 2018 two weeks after New Jersey took its first legal sports bet. 

The casino in the former Trump Taj Mahal has $500 million invested in refurbishment which is one reason why it took so long to get the online sportsbook up and running. The Hard Rock sports book only went live in January, 2019 and it is still facing some teething troubles. The sportsbook is run provided by the Gaming Innovation Group (GiG).

The Hard Rock is about brand and image and all sorts of other intangibles that don’t mean much in numbers but which make life more fun. The Hard Rock sportsbook lives up to the image with the kind of music and rock star themes for which the brand is famous.

In-game betting

In-game betting describes bets made after a game has started. It is also called live betting or in-play betting. In-game betting allows you to wager on which team will win even after a game has started, or you can bet on other events that might happen during the game.

The Hard Rock launched with in-game betting already live. The selection of sports offered is not huge, but it does include the most popular sports. If you want to bet on sports like darts, the Hard Rock is not for you.

The Hard Rock identifies its in-game betting with a Live Zone menu item that lists all events currently running. There is also a Live icon next to matchups in the main sports betting page section.

The in-game betting options are some of the best in the New Jersey market.
