Resorts Sportsbook Review

One of the classic movers and shakers in Atlantic City, Resorts Casino Hotel has been a New Jersey staple since 1927. Thanks to the historic Supreme Court decision back in May 2018 to federally legalize sports betting, Resorts can now offer a brand spanking new sportsbooks to its patrons.

Resorts has offered in-person betting since August 2018 when it became one of the first gaming properties in New Jersey to accept wagers. Now in partnership with big industry brands DraftKings and SBTech, Resorts offers a sports betting product with plenty of high profile backing.

The sportsbook generously offers you a risk-free bet up to $250. This means there's no pressure when placing your first bet: you either win or you lose and Resorts will give you the amount you bet in bonus money.

A 1x wagering requirement applies, which means you only have to wager the bonus amount once in order to withdrawal your winnings.

Desktop/Mobile Experience


{The desktop version of the sportsbook (located at is currently the only version of the sportsbook and the first words that come to mind when seeing it are “plain, simple and to the point.” There’s very little displayed in the way of aesthetics, so it creates a very neutral overall impression, which can be a good thing in and of itself.

Many bettors may in fact prefer a straightforward approach. One can’t help but think the site could be a tad less boring, but it’s nevertheless easy to navigate and find what you’re looking for right off the bat, which is a major plus.


There is currently no mobile app available for the Resorts Casino Sportsbook. However, the fact that there is a Resorts Casino app available on iOS and Android leads us to believe that an app could soon be available for the sportsbook. Players can partake in other casino games via the app, so it stands to reason that sports betting will soon be added to it, or Resorts will develop another app exclusively devoted to wagering.

Betting Features

Resorts Casino’s sportsbook offer a variety of different features that you might not find at other online sportsbooks. The “Highlights” tab featured prominently at the top of the home page takes players to a more specialized page of the biggest and most popular events of the day across all sports. It’s a tool meant to get bettors to the events they want even quicker which is crucial for those looking to get those last-second and live wagers in.

Another tab, “results”, allows you to quickly and easily check the final results of the day across all sports offered by the site. This is an incredibly convenient feature given the searching that can sometimes span a variety of different websites when trying to see if you’ve won. Now you can check the scores and place your bets all in the same place thanks to

For those new to sports betting there is a fantastically extensive “betting rules” section that explains in-detail the guidelines of betting every sports market offered on the site. This is another useful feature that you might not see displayed so accessibly on some competing sites.

The In Depth Stat Tool exists thanks to a partnership with sports data recording giant SportRadar. Need some last second stats to back up that pick you’ve been pondering all day? Odds are you’ll find what you’re looking for with a simple click of the Depth Stat Tool icon located near the odds for each event.

Finally, a fun feature known as “fast markets” appears while looking over InPlay betting options currently underway. Clicking on the small lightning bolt logo will take the player directly to the hottest inplay betting options for each inplay event.

Fast Pick

Perhaps the most unique feature available at Resorts Casino’s sportsbook is FastPick. The concept is a familiar one, particularly for fans of daily fantasy. Players simply look at the list of daily FastPick matchups that pit sports stars against each other and bet on which athletes will finish with more fantasy points.

The matchups are presented as “left vs. right” and all players have to do is select their choice and add it to their slip. They must select at least 3 athletes and can select up to 10. At least five dollars must be wagered and the maximum entry must be $10,000. The max payout is consistently $100,000 but within those parameters the amount that can be won is multiplied each time a player is added.

Essentially FastPick combines the thrill of daily fantasy with more traditional sports betting in a very interesting way. It creates a derivative, yet highly unique way of betting particularly on singular games. It’s definitely something that sets Resorts apart from the competition as it goes above and beyond to try doing its own thing.

Current Promotions

Aside from that awesome welcome bonus mentioned above, another major promotion Resorts Sportsbook offers is its Parlay Bonus Boost. Essentially this gives players the opportunity to win up to $25,000 in free bonus cash and up the stakes on their sports parlays of five legs or more.

That’s right.

Every parlay containing bets on at least five different results will win extra bonus cash on top of their posted payouts. The bonus amount is derived from a percentage of the payout and starts at 20% of a five-legged parlay. From there it steadily increases up to 60% of a 13-legged parlay where it plateaus.

Interestingly, the site lists the minimum combo odds for an eligible parlay bet at -200 as well as the minimum combo selection odds for an eligible parlay at -500. Winnings are credited as cash directly deposited into your account.

Responsible Gambling Features

Resorts Casino is fully committed to ensuring that its patrons and online gamers play responsibly at all times. Under its Terms and Conditions it lists the following initiatives:

  • Educate our team members to recognize problem gambling and give them the resources to help.
  • Provide information and assistance our players.
  • Participate in programs and initiatives to increase problem gambling awareness.
  • Prevent underage gambling.

The site offers players a special section of their account where they can keep tabs on “Responsible gaming” limit options. Here players can limit their deposits, session time and spending limit on a daily, weekly or even monthly basis. They can also add themselves to a self-exclusion list if they deem it necessary.

Our Verdict

If you’re looking for a sportsbook that balances a straightforward no-nonsense approach with some unique features look no further than Resorts Casino’s offering. Sports betting beginners would particularly find this site as a fantastic starting point. That shows that Resorts knows its audience.

That being said the site is simple, robust and may not be the most aesthetically pleasing as a result. But there’s little to distract the players from doing what they showed up at the online sportsbook to do: bet. Features like easy-to-access official data and FastPick for fantasy sports enthusiasts turned bettors make Resorts really stand out amongst the growing crowd of sports betting providers.
