Resorts World Casino Begins Offering Video Blackjack

New York City based Resorts World Casino has announced that they have begun offering video blackjack to their customers, as the casino launched 60 of the machines.

The casino has a goal of eventually offering 300 of the games in its casino, believing that the games will contribute at least $31 million to the state’s Lottery Education Fund… enough to hire 700 teachers.

The state of New York approved a regulation change in April that allowed the state’s racinos to begin offering games such as blackjack, provided the games are of the skill variety and are delivered in an electronic format.

A statement released by Resorts World New York President Ryan Eller on the issue read: “Resorts World is proud to do its part to help improve New York’s education system. The introduction of video blackjack furthers this support and helps to ensure more students throughout the city and state will earn a high-quality public education.”

Other betting sites such as Empire City Casino in Yonkers have also adopted the games as well, hoping that they can tap into the revenues being generated in states such as New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut.
