BetMGM sports betting news

Leading sports betting and iGaming operator, BetMGM has expanded it’s presence in Puerto Rico by introducing online sports betting in collaboration with Casino del Mar at La Concha Resort. This strategic move complements the existing retail sportsbook at the facility and marks BetMGM’s second venture outside of the US mainland.

The strategic partnership with Casino del Mar at La Concha Resort will help BetMGM deliver a top-notch mobile sports betting experience to residents of Puerto Rico through the newly launched BetMGM app. The app provides users with a user-friendly interface and a wide array of betting options.

Users can customize their wagers, choosing from pre-game, live in-play, futures, and parlay bets, tailoring their betting experience to their preferences. Moreso, the offering is integrated with the MGM Rewards loyalty program, allowing players to redeem their gameplay rewards at renowned properties such as Bellagio, ARIA, MGM Grand, Beau Rivage, Borgata, and MGM Grand Detroit.

To access the online sportsbook, users are required to complete an in-person identification validation process at BetMGM’s retail venue during the mobile app registration. This ensures a secure and responsible betting experience.

Casino del Mar’s General Manager, Sigfrido De Jesús, expressed excitement about the partnership, recognizing Puerto Rico’s position at the forefront of the sports betting industry. He emphasized the positive impact on both sports enthusiasts and the treasury, showcasing the innovative nature of the collaboration with BetMGM.

In the same vein, Adam Greenblatt, BetMGM’s CEO, expressed his enthusiasm for being the first operator to introduce mobile sports betting to Puerto Rico. He highlighted the collaboration with local officials and Casino del Mar, emphasizing the commitment to providing a safe, responsible, and entertaining product accessible to bettors across the island.

BetMGM’s expansion into Puerto Rico builds upon its successful introduction of regulated retail sports betting in the region earlier in February 2022. Casino del Mar, in particular, has played a pivotal role in advancing the sports betting landscape in Puerto Rico. The establishment recently opened a state-of-the-art $3.5 million sportsbook and lounge, equipped with 12 self-service kiosks and five betting windows, further enhancing the sports betting experience for enthusiasts.

The expansion into online sports betting solidifies BetMGM’s position as a key player in the Puerto Rican market, offering a comprehensive and innovative platform for bettors to engage in their favorite sports events and exciting wagering opportunities. With the partnership between BetMGM and Casino del Mar, Puerto Rico continues to showcase its prominence in the sports betting industry while providing a safe and enjoyable experience for enthusiasts.
