Resorts & Slot Squad to produce ‘immersive casino experience’

Resorts Casino Hotel Atlantic City

Resorts Casino Hotel Atlantic City has entered into what is heavily lauded as a “pioneering deal” with the Slot Squad in a bid to create “unique online experience” for customers.

This will see users of Resorts Live, a proprietary platform developed by Resorts Digital Gaming, gain the ability to play along and interact with the team in what is further praised as a “first of its kind partnership”.

The Slot Squad was brought to life in January 2020 with the aim of creating casino content specific to the US. 

David Copeland, Founder of the Slot Squad. said: “The Slot Squad has gained notoriety for their live Twitch streaming of online slots and table games, along with their vlogs of land based casinos across the USA.

“This partnership is just the beginning. As we grow together, we look to immerse online casino players into the amazing atmosphere of the original Resorts Casino through a variety of unique initiatives. 

“It’s going to bridge the gap between online players and in person experiences, and we’re excited to be working with Resorts to make it happen.”

Furthermore, Resorts Live is also in the process of developing in-person live streams at the gaming property that will feature the Slot Squad in inaugural broadcasts later this summer. 

Ed Andrewes, CEO of Resorts Digital Gaming, commented: “When we opened in 1978, Resorts was the first casino hotel in Atlantic City, and the first legal casino in the United States, outside of Nevada.

“Since then, we have always aimed to create innovative ways for our customers to enjoy slots and table games – including the launch of our online casino at 

“We are excited to bring on the Slot Squad to introduce a wider online audience to our digital platform, and we are delighted to partner with them to create an immersive online experience for our customers.”
