Ocean Resort Casino, the premier ocean-front hotel property in Atlantic City opening on the 28th of June 2018, has announced an innovative partnership that makes William Hill the casino’s sportsbook operator, bringing sports betting to the resort and southern New Jersey.

The sportsbook partnership will provide New Jersey bettors access to William Hill’s innovative wagering technology, including its best-in-class mobile and online sportsbook products.

“Ocean Resort Casino is thrilled to partner with William Hill, the best name in sports betting, to establish a truly unique sports betting experience in the center of our resort and in Atlantic City,” said Bruce Deifik, chairman of AC Ocean Walk, the company that owns Ocean Resort Casino. “From real-time betting to exclusive hospitality for major events, the sports book will be second-to-none.”

Pending legislation and regulatory approvals, William Hill will operate a 7,500 square foot sports book in the heart of Ocean’s gaming floor. The area will feature an integrated experience with a center bar and will be surrounded by state-of-the-art video wall technology for viewing of sporting events and live InPlay betting odds.

While in the newly constructed $6 million gaming area and at the William Hill sportsbook, guests will be able to wager on a diverse sports betting menu that includes football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, tennis, and more.

Joe Asher, CEO of William Hill US added: “We are very excited to be a part of Ocean Resort Casino, and to have a presence on the Atlantic City boardwalk. We have had great success working with Ocean’s senior management in Las Vegas, and we are excited to have the chance to do so in Atlantic City at what will be the best sports book in town.”
