Bally’s Corporation and FanDuel Group declared the grand launch of the FanDuel Sportsbook at the Atlantic City Hotel & Casino. The sportsbook employs the proprietary risk and trading technology of FanDuel and utilizes IGT PlaySports’s leverage to revamp the betting scene of Atlantic City. It is one of Bally’s Atlantic City’s most ambitious projects, as stated by the President and CEO of Bally’s Corporation, George Papanier.
The brand new Sportsbook features ten betting kiosks equipped for self-service, six display boards for viewing the betting odds in real-time, and three windows complete with assistants who conduct live sports betting. Bettors from all across Atlantic City can wager in at the most popular sports of the US that include professional baseball, motorsports racing, boxing, golf, basketball, football, soccer, and more. Papanier wishes to provide everyone at Atlantic City with the most unparalleled betting ecosystem that will feature a top-notch combination FanDuel’s sports betting insight and Bally’s nationwide proficiency in casino operations.
The contract is only temporary, and the sportsbook shall have a permanent location that is currently under construction and shall be open to all from 2021. The sportsbook campus at the permanent location shall span across 4100 square feet and will feature around 34 betting kiosks of IGT PlaySports for sports betting self-service and five live betting windows provided with attendants for customer service. Apart from offering a sports betting haven, the sportsbook at the location is also set to feature a deluxe lounge of eighty seats, complete with thirty reclining club chairs for the utmost relaxation. There shall be grand LED video players across the walls and a luxurious food and beverage section too.
Keith Wall, the Vice President of retail at the FanDuel Group, is thrilled about the project and is excited about welcoming the bettors of Atlantic City for an unbeatable betting and gaming experience. At present, all nine casinos of Atlantic City offer facilities of retail sports betting, but Bally’s Atlantic City Casino & Hotel shall definitely rule the roost.
