On Friday, MGM Resorts debuted their new sports betting experiences that will touch their Las Vegas properties which include over 100 gaming kiosks throughout.
In addition, they also announced the launch of BetMGM in Nevada, which is a partnership with Roar Digital, LLC (MGM Resorts’ joint venture with GVC Holdings).
With the launch of BetMGM in the Silver State comes a state-of-the-art mobile betting app for bettors to enjoy, as well as the rebranding of MGM Resort’s current sportsbooks.
Roar Digital executives had an impromptu meet and greet at Park MGM’s remodeled sportsbook and bar. The staff on hand demonstrated just how user-friendly the new kiosks and the unique features they offer.
The kiosks they used in the demonstration are primarily the ones that will be implemented across MGM Resorts properties.
“MGM Resorts has emerged as a leader in sports betting, striking significant partnerships with professional sports leagues, expanding our market reach and harnessing best-in-class mobile technology from Roar Digital, powered by GVC,” said Scott Butera, president of Interactive Gaming for MGM Resorts.
“Beyond sports, we continue to offer new and exciting amenities at our properties as we’ve found our sport bettors appreciate world-class hotels, restaurants and entertainment; BetMGM allows us to incorporate them into the ecosystem of everything MGM has to offer.
“I certainly believe live betting (in-game) will eventually capture the lion’s share of total wagering.”
Benefits of Sports Betting with BetMGM
With the launch of BetMGM in Nevada, Silver State sports bettors now have the flexibility and convenience to choose their own betting experience. They can choose to wager from their phones, in person at MGM Resorts sportsbooks, or the various accessible kiosks.
The intuitive mobile app and new gaming kiosks will offer simple navigation for ease of use, as well as the full suite of wagering options available in-person at the sportsbooks. Some of the sportsbook options that will be included are pre- and in-game bets, parlays, prop bets and more.
“We’re proud to formally introduce the new BetMGM app in Nevada today. MGM Resorts’ iconic properties across Las Vegas and GVC’s technology combine to deliver streamlined sports betting experience that’s easy to use and exciting to play, giving BetMGM a leading edge in the industry,” said Adam Greenblatt, CEO of Roar Digital.
Rebranded BetMGM Sportsbooks
The launch of BetMGM in Nevada will mean the rebranding of many of MGM Resorts sportsbooks in the coming weeks.
Sportsbooks at Bellagio, ARIA, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, The Mirage, Park MGM, New York-New York, Luxor, and Excalibur will all be refreshed to reflect the new partnership, as well as the addition of 100 gaming kiosks across the sportsbooks.
