Resorts World has entered New York online sports betting with the Resorts WorldBET app.
US.- Resorts World has announced its entry into New York’s online sports betting market launching the Resorts WorldBET app. The announcement comes ten days before the NCAA’s March Madness basketball tournament.
Users of the app must be 21 or older and physically in the state of New York during play. As part of the app’s launch, Resorts World New York City has invested almost $1m to install digital displays across the property to show big games.
“This is something our players and sports enthusiasts have wanted for a long time, and we’re excited to say Resorts World New York now has mobile sports betting,” said Robert DeSalvio, president at Genting Americas East.
“From our experience in having a Sportsbook in both our Catskills and Las Vegas properties, we were able to take feedback from our players and deliver what New Yorkers really want in a mobile sports betting app. By partnering with an innovative product and technology focused company in PointsBet as our platform provider, we believe Resorts WorldBET will only add to our success.”
Darlene Monzo, chief marketing officer, Genting America’s East, said: “For us, it’s all about providing a complete world class gaming experience and delivering the latest technology to our guests and loyal customers.
“Our players trust us, and we’re excited to provide a safe way for them to place their favorite sports bets through the Resorts WorldBET app, which they can do from the comfort of their couch, or in the big screen environment of Bar 360 in Queens, or Sportsbook 360 at Resorts World Catskills.”
Resorts World was one of nine operators that the New York State Gaming Commission approved for launch. Caesars, DraftKings, FanDuel, and Rush Street Interactive debuted as the market went live on January 8.
