Resorts Digital Gaming said Tuesday that it is in advanced discussions with a major global sports betting company that will allow it to operate under the RDG online sports betting license in New Jersey.
RDG, the online arm of DGMB Casinos, said the deal will be signed imminently, and the brand will join Fox Bet and DraftKings as skins under the RDG online sports betting license, as New Jersey licensees are only permitted three online sports betting skins.
The launch of the new brand will be subject to approval from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.
As a result of the pending deal, RDG will no longer be offering sports betting on the resortscasino.com website. All existing unsettled bets will stand, and sports betting customers will be able to withdraw funds at any time and continue to play on Resorts’ market-leading array of online slots, table games and live dealer product.
“I can’t wait to announce this exciting deal once it is finalized — it really will give RDG the most diverse stable of sports betting brands in the New Jersey market,” said Ed Andrewes, CEO of RDG. “This will also free up our third sports betting skin, allowing us to focus all our energy on our core casino customers.”
