Atlantic City’s Resorts Casino has launched its new online fantasy sports game for players in New Jersey.
FastPick.com is a new daily fantasy sports offering from Resorts Digital Gaming, the interactive arm of Resorts Casino Hotel, and went live on Monday (July 18th) for players physically located within the state.
As first reported by Gaming Intelligence, the site has been developed in partnership with SportAD and FSB Technology.
Powered by SportAD’s FastFantasy technology, FastPick.com presents players with a wide range of pre-selected player match-ups across all major sports leagues.
Players choose three or more matchups, with results being determined based on standard fantasy sports scoring. Examples of match-ups include Russell Westbrook v Lebron James (NBA), Manny Machado v Miguel Cabrera (MLB), or Tom Brady v Aaron Rogers (NFL).
“We want to appeal to sports fans who want to get a piece of the action but don’t have the time to compete effectively against the traditional “professional” DFS players”, said Ed Andrewes, lead consultant for Resorts Digital Gaming. “We are thrilled to partner with Sport AD to introduce the next generation of Fantasy Sports to our casinos as well as online and mobile.”
The FastPick game will also be added to Resortscasino.com later this month, with a retail version to be introduced at the casino via kiosks later in the year.
“We are very excited about this launch with Resorts Gaming, which has a reputation of bringing innovative gaming content to market in both their casino and online,” said SportAD chief executive Joe Brennan Jr.
“With plenty of MLB baseball right now, and the NFL football and European Soccer seasons about to start, the “FastPick” brand is in a strong position to capitalise on the daily fantasy sports market and attract players looking for a more fun and simple way to enjoy real-money sports games.”
