Resorts Casino Hotel, located on Atlantic City’s Boardwalk in New Jersey, has confirmed that its DraftKings Sportsbook is expected to be up and running and taking wagers by the end of this month. The Mohegan Sun facility issued a release this week stating that construction is near completion on the sportsbook and will open soon pending approval from the state’s Division of Gaming Enforcement.
Developed in partnership with DraftKings, the global sports technology and entertainment company and New Jersey’s leading online sports betting platform, the retail space will feature a ‘best-in-class customer experience’ for sports fans in the Garden State.
Despite striking a deal with SBTech in July, it is understood that the Resorts Casino Hotel sportsbook will be powered by Kambi, the technology supplier behind DraftKings’ early success in New Jersey.
“We are proud to partner with an industry leader in sports betting and open an innovative sports betting experience that only DraftKings Sportsbook at Resorts will offer,” said Mark Giannantonio, president and CEO, Resorts Casino Hotel. “Once completed, the new on-property retail space will bring an immersive and entertaining gaming experience for our guests and sports fans alike, ensuring the best sports betting scene in Atlantic City.”
Marking another major milestone for Atlantic City’s first casino hotel, the new DraftKings Sportsbook at Resorts will feature multiple sports and wagering options such as live, in-game betting with five windows and 12 kiosks, offering multiple opportunities for sports fans to place their bets. Additionally, the space will offer ultra-high-definition video walls, a VIP area, comfortable stadium-style seats with chargers, and a full bar with food and beverage service and bar top electronic slots.
“We’ve been working for months with the team at Resorts to make sure the DraftKings retail sportsbook meets the highest bar for quality and customer experience,” said Matt Kalish, CRO and co-founder of DraftKings. “We are tremendously excited to launch our first physical presence in the state with such a trusted partner, and to service their loyal patrons.”
