Atlantic City's Resorts Casino Hotel has been granted a full online gambling license from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement under the Resorts Digital title.
The company has been delivering remote gambling services since March via resortscasino.com and via mohegansuncasino.com since July under the Mohegan Sun license as it is part owner of Resorts.
Mark Giannantonio, Resorts’ president and CEO, said Resorts is “the first casino company in the country to open a digital gaming lounge” on its property. “To me, that’s the greatest marketing we can have,” he said.
“Our online volume of business is made up of about 50 percent of bricks-and-mortar (Resorts) customers - and about 58 percent of them were inactive before resortscasino.com went online”, Giannantonio said.
Resorts has agreements with NYX Gaming Group including a deal pending NJ licensing approval for PokerStars with Amaya Gaming, who expects to receive approval during Qtr3 2015.
