Making history as the first American casino outside of Nevada, Resorts Casino Hotel celebrated its 45th Anniversary in May of 2023. Resorts Casino Hotel is a consistent winner of gaming awards in both Casino Player Magazine and Strictly Slots Magazine. 2013 saw the completion of $130 million in upgrades to Resorts Casino Hotel, including the brand-new, cutting-edge Resorts Conference Center, Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, Landshark Grill Complex, and the opening of the only full-service bar and restaurant open all year long on the sand side of the Boardwalk Landshark Bar and Grill. In 2018, Resorts also welcomed DraftKings Sportsbook at Resorts, a popular on-property sportsbook offering guests live, in-game and general sports betting around the world.
