Some casinos in Atlantic City prepared parties and promotions to boost business during the Super Bowl weekend. "Without a doubt, Super Bowl Sunday is big for us," said Tom Pohlman, general manager of Golden Nugget Atlantic City. However, some casino executives believe that the city would have gained more if Las Vegas-style sports betting were legal in the state. "If New Jersey had sports betting, this weekend would be one of the busiest weekends of the year, other than three-day holidays," said Joe Lupo, senior vice president of operations for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
