The current New Jersey online sports betting leader, DraftKings Sportsbook NJ, will soon be a part of land-based sports betting, as they partner with Resorts Casino Hotel. Pending approval from the Division of Gaming Enforcement, the NJ sportsbook is set to open by late November. The brick-and-mortar casino partnership with DK should only enhance their NJ sports betting operation, as they have already established Resorts Online Casino.
Mark Giannantonio, President and CEO of Resorts Casino Hotel, expressed his feelings about the partnership, stating, “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.” Giannantoni added that the venue will bring an immersive, entertaining gaming experience, and ensured it will be the top sports betting spot in AC.
NJ DraftKings Sportsbook may be opening shortly at Resorts Casino in Atlantic City, but DK’s first land-based sportsbook opens this Friday at Scarlet Pearl Casino in Mississippi. It appears in the not-so-distant future that DraftKings will bring its sportsbook to several brick-and-mortar casinos.
