Less than one month since its March 3 launch, Resorts World New York has a new partner.

London-based Genius Sports announced Wednesday an agreement with Resorts WorldBET, the new mobile sports betting app for Resorts World New York, to help power its new offering. Resorts World also has brick-and-mortar casinos Resorts World Catskills (RWC) and Resorts World New York City (RWNYC).

Genius Sports will help Resorts WorldBET, which became the eighth mobile provider to launch in the Empire State, by providing its leading LiveData and LiveTrading official data feeds.

Resorts World joined a crowded field that already included Caesars Sportsbook New York, FanDuel New York, DraftKings New York, BetRivers New York, BetMGM New York, PointsBet New York and WynnBET New York.

“We are excited to partner with Genius Sports and offer the most cutting-edge technology with real-time data so that customers stay ahead of the game,” said Darlene Monzo, chief marketing officer of Genting Americas East, which operates Resorts WorldBET, in a news release. “Mobile sports betting in New York is primed to lead the nation and our world-class platform offers exactly what customers are looking for: an innovative mix of speed, reliability and access to the most advanced data available.”
