FanDuel Group and Twin River Worldwide Holdings will debut a FanDuel Sportsbook inside Bally’s Atlantic City Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey by the end of the year, pending licensing and regulatory approvals from the New Jersey Casino Control Commission, New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement and the completion of Twin River’s pending acquisition of Bally’s Atlantic City Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
The partnership between Twin River Worldwide Holdings and FanDuel Group began in May with the launch of the FanDuel Sportsbook online and mobile experience in Colorado. The partnership combines Twin River Worldwide Holdings nationwide experience in gaming and casino operations with FanDuel Group’s market-leading sports betting retail expertise and global brand.
“We currently already have a FanDuel Sportsbook app and online experience in Colorado at another TRWH property,” says George Papanier, President and CEO of Twin River Worldwide Holdings. “They are great partners and we are thrilled to work with them in another exciting, gaming-centric market like Atlantic City. The permanent sportsbook location is going to be one of the many exciting changes we have in store for the Bally’s property – a unique location just steps away from center boardwalk where millions stroll by annually. We look forward to breaking ground on this new space as soon as the closing is final,” says Papanier.
The temporary sportsbook will be located on the first floor of the casino. FanDuel Group anticipates opening the permanent FanDuel Sportsbook location in the Spring of 2021, subject to securing regulatory approvals. Sports bettors visiting Atlantic City will be able to enjoy the FanDuel Sportsbook retail experience featuring an incredible game day atmosphere with wagering options available for professional football, basketball, baseball, hockey and more.
“The FanDuel Sportsbook is the clear market leader in New Jersey and we are excited to expand our retail footprint in the state to now include Atlantic City,” said Matt King, CEO FanDuel Group. “We are excited to get started and be a key piece in Twin River Worldwide Holdings transformation of the iconic Bally’s Atlantic City Hotel and Casino.”
