DraftKings to set up betting facility in NJ

The recent US Supreme Court ruling on betting has catalysed serious discussions between companies and casinos legalisation of sports betting in the United States has shaken the gambling industry and discussions between are ongoing. The big daily fantasy sports (DFS) provider DraftKings is planning to join hands with Resorts Atlantic City to introduce sports betting in New Jersey.

The deal signed on Friday will offer the companies an opportunity to position themselves to gain a large share of the recently legalised sports betting market.

The US Supreme Court declared late last month that the federal prohibition on sports betting was unconstitutional; giving states the opportunity to legalise and regulate it if they wanted. As New Jersey was one of the states that already offered some type of online gaming, it is expected that it will regulate sports betting in the upcoming weeks.

Jason Robbins, CEO of DraftKings, said: “Everybody knows there’s a big opportunity out there. It’s a new thing, so people are trying to see how they want to go about it, who they want to partner with. Anytime you’ve got a big market about to be created, there’s so much opportunity out there that everyone should benefit, as long as you do it the right way.”

The CEO added that Draftkings will offer web-based and mobile operations for sports betting in New Jersey. “We are excited to work with Resorts Hotel Casino to bring our new DraftKings sportsbook to New Jersey. As a tech savvy and a long-term growth-oriented organisation, Resorts Hotel Casino aligns perfectly with our customer-focused, innovation culture.”

Morris Bailey, the owner of Resorts, welcomed the new revenue stream and said that DraftKings is a dynamic brand. “The market is huge,” he said. “It’s how much of that market we’ll be able to get.”

Moreover, Bailey opposed the idea of integrity fee payments to sports leagues, as he considers that they would be inappropriate. The leagues have historically opposed the idea of sports betting, and once it was clear that the Supreme Court was going to strike down the Act that prohibited states from offering the gambling modality, they started campaigning for a portion of the revenue.

 “It’s totally inappropriate,” Bailey said. “It’s the height of hypocrisy to take the position they did.”

RTG launched a new game, called I, ZombieReading Time: 1 minute

 

RTG Asia, the Philippines-based gaming company, has launched a new game called I, Zombie, which is a five-reel, 25 line game. It features Amy, a gorgeous zombie killer.

“The zombie epidemic continues, but now it’s taken a personal toll: Nancy has turned! Her beautiful blue eyes have gone red, her carefully manicured nails have grown into claw-like things. She might be the WORST kind of zombie — still so sexy, so attractive, so deadly. You have to see her! And, as in life, so WILD. And she is your WILD too. You may even see two more her appear and they’ll jump across the reels… not to kill you but to help you win more,” – commented RTG Asia.

“Maybe if she could see herself in the mirror she could change back… would that help? Could that help? It’ll certainly help YOU: when you get three mirrors – the game’s scatter – you get free spins. Get four mirrors and your free spin prize doubles. Five mirrors, it trebles,” it concludes.

William Hill US seeks modifications in regulationsReading Time: 1 minute

 

William Hill US has written a letter to the Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB) seeking modifications in current regulations so as to eliminate some technical glitches. This is after FanDuel paid out on an erroneous ticket that allowed the ticket holder to win US$82k in New Jersey.

It is learnt that William Hill US mainly asked the power for the Chair to use discretion in rescinding bets where an obvious error had occurred, such as wrong pricing. “This would address the situation that occurred recently in New Jersey where an operator issued a wager on a football game at a price that was obviously incorrect,” reads the letter.

Sylvia Tiscareno, general counsel of William Hill, testified during NGCB’s meeting this week and said that the request comes after several internal discussions. The panel at the meeting decided to consider the testimony before making a decision.
