ATLANTIC CITY — Resorts Digital Gaming, the interactive arm of Resorts Casino Hotel Atlantic City, has added European soccer to its Daily Fantasy Sport site, Fastpick.com.

FastPick presents players with a wide range of pre-selected player match-ups across major sports leagues. Players choose three or more match-ups, and the results are based on standard fantasy sports scoring.

Players may choose favorite matchups within Ligue 1, Serie A, The Premier League, Bundesliga and La Liga leagues.

“European football has grown by leaps and bounds in the United States, and we’re thrilled to invite players to choose their favorite footballers to win,” said Ed Andrewes, president of EA Gaming Consultancy Co., lead consultant to Resorts Digital Gaming. “Since launching just a few weeks ago, we’ve changed the Daily Sports Fantasy game in a bold way. As we push into the fall, we’ll be adding even more major league sports, including football, hockey and basketball. Stay tuned.”

Resorts is the first casino in New Jersey to let patrons play daily fantasy sports contests for money. Nevada is the only other state to offer daily fantasy sports games for money through casinos, according to the American Gaming Association.

Resorts hopes to have kiosks featuring the game up and running at the property later this year.
