FanDuel Announces its Bally’s Atlantic City Sportsbook

New Jersey sports bettors just love FanDuel, whether it’s the online sportsbook or the brick-and-mortar sportsbook at The Meadowlands Racetrack. Now they will have another option for placing all their sporting wagers with FanDuel.

FanDuel will open a land-based sports book at Bally’s casino in Atlantic City once the casino’s sale to the Rhode Island Casino company, Twin River Holdings is finalized. The sake is expected to be completed an FanDuel up-and-running in Atlantic City just in time for the NFL play-offs and the beginning the College Football’s Bowl Season.

Bally’s already has an existing sports book in the Wild, Wild West section of their casino hotel. However, that area is set to be annexed by the adjacent Caesars casino once the Bally’s sale to Twin River is expected to close out in the final quarter of the year.

Once opened for business, then all 9 Atlantic City bricks-and-mortar casinos will have land-based sports books as New Jersey looks to further extend its lead in first place as national sports wagering market leader.

It also means that FanDuel New Jersey online sportsbook customers will have another venue available for cashing out their winnings at the Bally’s Hotel and Casino’s Cash At Cage facility.

FanDuel & Twin River a good team

The two entities have a history of working well together. FanDuel and Twin River runs both their Colorado online sportsbook and a land-based facility under the Twin River license in the Mile-High State.

Matt King, Chief Executive Officer of the FanDuel Group remarked;

The FanDuel Sportsbook is the clear market leader in New Jersey and we are excited to expand our retail footprint in the state to include Atlantic City. We are excited to get started and be a key piece in Twin River’s transformation of the iconic Bally’s Atlantic City Hotel and Casino.” King said.

King’s sentiments were echoed by President and Chief Executive Officer of Twin River Worldwide Holdings, George Papanier;

FanDuel are great partners and we are thrilled to work with them in another exciting, gaming-centric market like Atlantic City. “The permanent sportsbook location is going to be one of the many exciting changes we have in store for the Bally’s property – a unique location just steps away from center boardwalk where millions stroll by annually. We look forward to breaking ground on this new space as soon as the closing is final.”

Twin River initially acquired Bally’s Atlantic City from Caesar’s early this year, but has been required to wait 6 months for the deal to through. Now it has, Twin River also has plans to use one of Bally’s three online sports betting licenses in New Jersey to also launch a Bally’s branded sports book after announcing earlier this week that the Rhode Island based company is changing its name to Bally’s Corporation effective from Monday November 9.
