Resorts Digital Gaming (RDG), the online division of Atlantic City's Resorts Casino Hotel, announced on Tuesday that it is in advanced discussions with a global sports betting company that will allow it to operate under the RDG online sports betting license in New Jersey.
RDG is expecting that the deal will be signed "imminently," and the brand will join FOX Bet and DraftKings as skins under the RDG online sports betting license. The launch of the new brand will be subject to approval from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement. Resorts Atlantic Casino is part of the Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment (MGE) group.
As a result of the pending deal, RDG will no longer be offering sports betting on the resortscasino.com website. The company explained that all existing unsettled bets will stand, and sports betting customers will be able to withdraw funds at any time and continue to play on Resort's array of online slots, table games, and live dealer products.
"I can't wait to announce this exciting deal once it is finalized – it really will give RDG the most diverse stable of sports betting brands in the NJ market," Ed Andrewes, CEO of RDG, said in a press release. "This will also free up our third sports betting skin, allowing us to focus all our energy on our core casino customers," said Andrewes.
