Atlantic City’s Resorts Casino is expected to open its new DraftKings Sportsbook by the end of November.
The operator says that construction of the DraftKings Sportsbook is nearing completion and should open to the public by late November, pending approval from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.
Developed in partnership with DraftKings, the retail sportsbook will feature multiple sports and wagering options including live, in-game betting. The sportsbook will feature five windows and 12 self-service kiosks for sports fans to place their bets.
"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 Resorts Casino Hotel president and chief executive Mark Giannantonio. "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."
DraftKings chief revenue officer and co-founder Matt Kalish commented: "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. We are tremendously excited to launch our first physical presence in the state with such a trusted partner, and to service their loyal patrons."
DraftKings opened its first retail sportsbook this week in Mississippi through a partnership with Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort.
