FanDuel Launches New Retail Location
Just in time for March Madness, Fandeul has opened a permanent sportsbook at Bally’s Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City. The college basketball season’s tournaments begin on March 18, 2021, and goes for about 3 weeks.
These weeks are among the busiest time of the year for sports betting operators. FanDuel will be open just in time for fans to place sports wagers at five betting windows or use one of twenty IGT PlaysSports self-serve betting kiosks inside of Bally’s Casino.
FanDuel Group Senior Director of Operations Andrew Kleiman, in speaking about this new addition to their sports betting services, explained,
“We are privileged to partner with Bally’s Corporation to open our FanDuel Sportsbook inside Bally’s Atlantic City.”
“The legacy of Atlantic City and the excitement of being steps away from the boardwalk creates a unique atmosphere for our customers. We look forward to a successful future with our new partner and community.”
The new FanDuel Sportsbook at Bally’s Atlantic City is the fifth retail sportsbook that the Bally’s Corporation has opened up in the last few years. They operate sportsbooks in Rhode Island, Colorado, Delaware, Mississippi, and New Jersey.
According to CEO and President of Bally’s, Georg Papanier,
“We are thrilled to be in this market and to give our guests an incredible sportsbook experience, right off the boardwalk and our gaming floor.”
Bally’s Corporation owns Bally’s AC. The casino operator bought the property from Caesars Entertainment in 2020. The first partnership between FanDuel and Bally’s was formed in early 2020 with the launch of an online betting product in the just beginning Colorado market.
The partnership continued as they strove to open the current retail sportsbook in Atlantic City. Prior to the partnership between the two, Caesars partnered with a William Hill betting facility.
