Tropicana AC and Eldorado Resorts opened the largest sports betting venue in Atlantic City as the segment continues to grow in the US.
US.- The sports betting industry continues to thrive in the US after PASPA was struck down by the Supreme Court and it has just taken another step in Atlantic City. Tropicana Atlantic City and Eldorado Resorts have launched the operation with the most seats in the area, proof that the segment is just starting to roll out and will keep growing.
“We are proud to partner with Tropicana Atlantic City and Eldorado Resorts to open this world class sportsbook,” William Hill US CEO Joe Asher said. “The new sportsbook at the Trop is proof of our collective commitment to provide our customers with the best possible experience. Powered by our industry leading sports betting product, it will bring added excitement to sports fans that want to watch and wager at the Tropicana.”
January was the first time in history that Nevada sportsbooks didn’t top the US market, as New Jersey took US$385 million in bets, winning US$18.8 million of them. According to the Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB), state’s sportsbooks raked only US$14.6 million in revenue during the first month of 2019, down 3% year-on-year.
“Sports betting has been an incredible addition to Tropicana,” Eldorado Resorts Senior Vice President of Operations – Eastern Region Steve Callender said. “Guests are not only coming to experience the sportsbook. They are also staying in the hotel, dining at our restaurants and enjoying all our non-gaming amenities. We expect to see these positive effects continue with the addition of our permanent location.”
