Resorts Digital to grant third NJ skin to “major global company”

| By Daniel O'Boyle
Resorts Digital Gaming, the online arm of DGMB Casinos, is in “advanced discussions” with an unnamed “major global sports betting company” to bring the business into New Jersey under Resorts’ licence.

Resorts Digital said the deal is set to be signed imminently, with the brand then able to launch once it receives approval from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.

“I can’t wait to announce this exciting deal once it is finalised – it really will give RDG the most diverse stable of sports betting brands in the New Jersey market,” Resorts Digital Gaming chief executive Ed Andrewes said.

“This will also free up our third sports betting skin, allowing us to focus all our energy on our core casino customers.”

New Jersey licensees are only permitted three online sports betting skins.

As Resorts Digital already has deals in place with Flutter’s Fox Bet and DraftKings, the operator will stop offering sports betting on its ResortsCasino.com website.

All existing unsettled bets will stand and sports betting customers will be able to withdraw funds at any time. Online casino will continue to be available.
