US – Resorts’ sportsbook opens for businessBy Phil - 16 August 2018
Resorts Casino Hotel, the first casino hotel in New Jersey, has celebrated a new milestone by opening its sports book on-property.
The state-of-the-art sports book is home to six betting windows with an interactive lounge area, which offers comfortable seating for those looking to enjoy the game and see their bet come to life first-hand across a 15-foot video wall.
Mark Giannantonio, President and CEO of Resorts Casino Hotel, said: “As the birthplace of casino gaming in New Jersey, Resorts Casino Hotel is thrilled our state has authorized legal sports betting as this marks a great advancement for the gaming industry. The opening of our new sports book will set a precedent for sports betting in Atlantic City, offering an elevated gaming experience for our loyal guests. We are proud to introduce the accessibility of an on-property sports book, further strengthening Resorts as the place to experience New Jersey’s best-in-class gaming.”
This sports book will act as a temporary sports betting location, with a larger, permanent sports book opening in the near future. Resorts Casino Hotel is at the forefront of the online sports betting scene in New Jersey with its latest partnerships between DraftKings and The Stars Group, and will roll out a third online sports betting option on ResortsCasino.com by fall 2018 through an alliance with SBTech. The addition of sports betting to ResortsCasino.com will fulfill Resorts’ third and final online skin, making it the only casino in Atlantic City with online and on-property sports betting.
