Resorts World review 2023


Resorts World Sportsbook is up-and-coming in the New York market. They are sure to establish their brand as the NY State Gaming Commission awards three downstate casino licenses, one of which is expected to go to Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens, which is owned by Resorts World’s parent company, Genting.

Resorts World has a retail sportsbook at Monticello Racetrack, which has been the closest full-service casino located near New York City. Because of this local infrastructure, Resorts World was quick to partner with several other gaming companies to get one of the two sportsbook licenses in New York.

Their software is efficient, even if their odds (set by Genius Sports) are not anything special. That may all change when Aqueduct is awarded a full casino license, which will force Resorts World Bet to ramp up its advertising across New York state, and especially in the New York City metropolitan area. There’s certainly value for bettors with the Resorts World loyalty program.

In this review you can learn more about Resorts World’s sports markets and bets, promos, banking options and security, as well as an overview of the Resorts World app.

Sports markets and bet types


There are 12 different markets at Resorts World, with Football, basketball, golf and hockey among the most popular. Bet types include over/unders, match results, team futures and in-game wagers. The Resorts World sportsbook app includes the same markets and organizes them in the same way.

The book’s overseas offerings are notable, and include soccer from the Champions League in Europe, Premier League in England, LaLiga in Spain, Serie A in Italy, Ligue 1 in France, Liga MX in Mexico and Bundesliga in Germany. Resorts World Sportsbook also offers Rugby Union and international tennis and motorsports gambling.

Bonuses and promotions


Promotions here are creative, and including one offering a baseball signed by New York Yankees Hall of Fame reliever Mariano Rivera. There is a nifty “Swing For the Fences” promotion that gives $3 bonus bets for every home run your team hits, a $50 Resorts World refer a friend bonus, and UFC technical knockout insurance that give you a $25 bonus bet if your fighter gets knocked out.

Be mindful that you have to opt into these Resorts World bet promo specials, which also include Same Game Parlay boosters. The Resorts World loyalty program offers discounted hotel rooms and other sportsbook betting rewards.

The Resorts World Bet NY promo code is not yet offered as Genting concentrates its efforts on the casino license. That bonus is expected to be offered at a later date.



There are five different ways to deposit funds in at Resorts World, and the money is available for wagering almost immediately. Allowable options are:

  • Debit card
  • Trustly
  • ACH eCheck
  • PayNearMe

Online banking withdrawals take only 1-3 business days, and the PayPal turnaround time is about 24 hours. Check by mail is not offered. There’s a $5 minimum deposit and no maximum deposit. Any withdrawal of $10,000 or more will be immediately reported to the IRS in accordance with US banking laws.

Security and fair play


As part of our rating, Resorts World was put through our 25-step review process, which includes a check of the brand’s licensing and technology for safe, fair betting.

Resorts World Sportsbook is one of nine sportsbooks licensed to operate online in New York, and is a publicly traded company on the Malaysian stock exchange. The book is cryptocurrency friendly through a partnership with Gemini, and uses SSL encryption to protect users’ data. The company is audited in the United States by Casino Cash Trac of Tulsa, Okla., and internationally by PwC.

Chat support via the app and site is quick and efficient, with a human agent usually available within seconds.

Resorts World app


The Resorts World Sportsbook App highlights odds for live events with its “Featured” section. This app is especially easy to use because it mirrors what is seen on the desktop site. The “Next Up” feature shows which events are upcoming in the next several hours, and the sport-by-sport navigation allows users to easily find the events they want to wager on.

There are not many bells and whistles here; it’s a very straightforward app with basic graphics and speedy functionality. It will be interesting to see how Genting improves this app after receiving its casino license for Aqueduct. It is compatible with iOS and Android.



Resorts World Sportsbook is a company to watch closely as the broader gambling market in New York evolves. Because the parent company is traditionally associated with on-site casino gambling more than sportsbook operations, there will be a learning curve here as the company figures out how to compete in the sports gambling space. We expect to see them invest much more heavily in advertisements and generous bonus codes.

One of the more interesting things for New York sports gamblers to keep an eye on is how companies such as Resorts World try to entice signups after coming out of the gate slowly after online sports gambling was legalized in 2022. Resorts World was not aggressive initially, and the catch-up game should provide good bonus opportunities to American sports gamblers as Genting figures out the peculiarities of particular markets.

Their differentiator is being able to offer getaway deals for its hotels in Las Vegas and around the world, and this is an asset that Resorts World should utilize to the fullest extent in finding customers who like to travel as well as gamble. We also look forward to seeing whether Resorts World will be able to offer superior odds, which is within their means because of parent company Genting’s deep pockets.
