Resorts Casino Hotel, New Jersey has become the first casino in Atlantic City that lets the patrons play daily fantasy sports contests for money. The casino launched FastPick, a daily fantasy sports game on Monday, in which the customers have to choose from real world athletes for head-to-head player matchups.
It marks the spread out of daily fantasy sports in the casino markets. Though the activity is popular online across the nation and worldwide, the pace with which it is trying to catch the casinos in the U.S is rather slow.
Resorts Casino Hotel was the first casino that opened outside the Nevada in 1978. The casino allows the customers to choose from three to ten players from a series of head-to-head matchups across a range of sports. If the players selected by customers outperform the casino’s player, by gathering more fantasy points, he wins the matchup. The client needs to win all the matchup to win money.
Currently, the daily fantasy contests are only available online. Resorts Casino wants to set out the kiosks up and running on the casino floor before the starting of the football season.
