The deal must get the nod from the New Jersey Casino Control Commission and New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, and the completion of Twin River’s pending acquisition of the casino property from Caesars Entertainment.
The two companies said a temporary sportsbook will be located on the first floor of the casino. They anticipate opening the permanent location in spring 2021.
In May, Twin River and FanDuel opened the FanDuel Sportsbook online and mobile experience in Colorado.
“We currently already have a FanDuel Sportsbook app and online experience in Colorado at another TRWH property,” George Papanier, President and CEO of Twin River said in a statement. “They are great partners and we are thrilled to work with them in another exciting, gaming-centric market like Atlantic City.”
“We are excited to expand our retail footprint in the state to now include Atlantic City,” said Matt King, CEO FanDuel Group. “We are excited to get started and be a key piece in Twin River Worldwide Holdings’ transformation of the iconic Bally’s Atlantic City Hotel and Casino.”
Twin River owns and manages nine casinos: two in Rhode Island, two in Mississippi, one in Delaware, one in Missouri and three casinos as well as a horse racetrack that has 13 authorized OTB licenses in Colorado.
