This sportsbook is expected to be state of the art, both in terms of sports betting services and as a sports bar. Places in Atlantic City are looking for solid branding and need to give customers positive experiences this early in the game. It’s cliche but true that “one only gets one chance for a first impression.” And the Draftkings Sportsbook at Resorts is keen to impress. They’ve been anticipating sports betting in the US for a while and have had some time to refine their online betting product. This experience should help their retail adventure at Resorts AC. New customers and first-time bettors hopefully will not have the kitchen sink thrown at them and will be able to comfortably make bets while in a top-notch sports bar environment.
What to bet on at Resorts & DraftKings:
The DraftKings Sportsbook online product has a lot of betting information and a ton of sports to make bets on. Their retail brand over at Resorts AC will have the same type of information and types of lines. You can bet on:
- Ice Hockey
- Motor Racing
- Darts, Cricket and Rugby
When it comes to the types of bets, DraftKings Sportsbook at Resorts accepts all kinds of bets – including in-game bets.
DraftKings also offers pools in their online sportsbook product, but it remains to be seen if pools will also make their way into the Resorts sports betting lineup.
Sports Betting Resorts Guide
If you visit the Resort’s website, you will find the Resorts Sports Betting Guide. You can download it in pdf and find all the information you need. We expect DraftKings to be involved in the development of a new sportsbook guide and will share the link here when that version is finished.
For now, however, this sports betting guide by Resorts is an especially good thing for beginners who are not quite familiar with sports betting terminology. However, with the addition of DraftKings’ insights, this should only become even more useful.
DraftKings Sportsbook at Resorts Promotions
To kick off the opening day celebrations of this sportsbook, nothing official has been announced. However, look for promotions to rotate in and out as the seasons change and new sports come into focus. This doesn’t only apply to better lines and odds too but you might get special deals for the Resorts Hotel or even just discounts at the sportsbook bar. Why not get a discounted round of beer?
If anything recurrent or ongoing appears, we’ll post it here. But to be sure that you’re always getting the most accurate information, it’s best to check the DraftKings Sportsbook at Resorts website for the latest promotions or offers.
DraftKings is already live with mobile apps for iOS and Android to bet on sports if you’re in NJ. So, why not beat the lines and kiosks at the DraftKings-Resorts sportsbook by betting beforehand on the DraftKings app? You can still enjoy the atmosphere of a bustling sportsbook without the hassle.
The majority of bettors use their mobile devices to place a bet. Mobile betting has a way more advantages than good old online sports betting. First of all, it’s much easier to place a bet on your smartphone than a computer. You can do it anytime and anywhere you want.
Though we cannot say for certain, we expect the DraftKings mobile experience to be integrated into the DraftKings Sportsbook at Resorts. (Afterall, it’s an excellent branding partnership for DraftKings too.) It simply makes sense to pull odds and lines from the same data to display on retail and mobile. That ensures some consistency between their products and builds trusts among patrons that use both services.
Want to check the odds before you actually walk into the DraftKings sportsbook? Just check their app.
Again, we stress that this suspicious is not conclusive. But for the DraftKings Sportsbook at Resorts AC to get the most out of this partnership, we believe this is the ideal experience that bettors should get.
Final Thoughts on DraftKings-Resorts AC Sportsbook
By all reasonable interpretations of the news and press releases, the Draftkings Sportsbook at Resorts is well on its way to becoming a popular destination for sports bettors visiting Atlantic City. The online and mobile integration of their product into this retail partnership would be the icing on the cake.
Of course, we cannot know for sure that there will not be any complications until after November 20th. After that date, we’ll re-review this sportsbook with a thorough assessment of their services. Stay tuned!
