How Online Gaming Helps Atlantic City

How playing online supports Real-World Atlantic City Casinos

When regulated online gambling came to New Jersey back in 2013, some people assumed that the online casino world would ultimately cannibalize the live, offline casino world. The argument was that people who enjoy gambling in Atlantic City would suddenly have no need to visit New Jersey’s casino capital as people moved began playing at home or on the go.

But the truth is that the opposite has happened, at least as far as Resorts Casino Hotel is concerned. Since launching, we’ve found the more and more people are discovering how great our fun and relaxed live casino experience is. Situated right on the boardwalk, Resorts Casino Hotel offers everything a casino player wants — great games, a hotel, fantastic restaurants, and entertainment right outside your door (not to mention spectacular Atlantic Ocean views).

Our research shows that our NJ online casino has actually fueled interest in our live casino property. That means by playing online, you’re supporting not just our online property, but Atlantic City as a whole. Today, we’re digging a bit deeper to show you what it all means.

That means when you play online, you’re helping not just the online casino grow, but the live casino, too. By welcoming more and more guests online and off, we’ve been able to expand our offerings.
