DraftKings swoops for Resorts Casino sports betting deal

Latest New Jersey gambling news

Resorts Casino and SBTech appear to have terminated their short-lived sports betting partnership, with DraftKings picking up the slack.

The daily fantasy sports operator launched a dozen new betting kiosks at the Atlantic City property this week.

The deal also includes five in-person points of sale and digital signage around the venue.

The DraftKings sports betting platform is powered by Kambi, which enjoys partnerships with 32 Red, 888 Sport, Leo Vegas and dozens more gambling companies worldwide.

“We are delighted to have launched the DraftKings sportsbook at Resorts, replacing the casino’s previous on-property book,” Kambi executive Max Meltzer told reporters.

“To answer the call of Resorts at relatively short notice, and to do so with the delivery of such an impressive sportsbook space, has further strengthened the partnership between ourselves and DraftKings.

“As all of our retail launches to date have shown, our approach to sportsbook implementation and staff training is second to none.

“And we’ll have another opportunity to demonstrate this in Pennsylvania over the coming weeks as we prepare to launch alongside our partners Rush Street and Greenwood Gaming & Entertainment, owners of Parx Casino.”

SBTech signed on as the official betting partner of Resorts back in July.

That deal included retail wagering outlets along with online and mobile sportsbooks for the New Jersey gambling community.

The DraftKings partnership is restricted to on-property betting shops at present, so what happens with the digital side of the business remains to be seen.
