Bet365 secures New Jersey office

Stoke-headquartered firm leases 19,000 square foot space near Pennsylvania border

Bet365 has leased new office space in New Jersey, as the operator readies itself for its US launch.

The Stoke-headquartered firm has signed a “long-term lease” on an office in Evesham Township, New Jersey, close to Philadelphia across the Pennsylvania border.

The office is close to 19,000 square feet, and could hold up to 200 employees.

The operator declined to comment on what functions would be housed in the new space, but online operators in the state are required by law to house certain functions including customer services and identification in New Jersey.

The operator also declined to give further details on its expected launch date.

Bet365 has partnered with the Hard Rock for licensing in New Jersey and has also secured access to New York via a deal with Empire Resorts.

The operator previously hired Will Green from the AGA to help with its lobbying efforts in the US.
