Best-in-Class Sports Betting App Enters its 10th State
JERSEY CITY, NJ – (January 27, 2021) – BetMGM launched its market-leading sports betting app in Virginia today, giving customers access to a wide variety of betting options, as well as benefits tied to MGM National Harbor in Maryland and MGM Resorts’ iconic casino-resorts throughout the United States.
“We’re ecstatic that BetMGM is one of the first mobile sports betting platforms to launch in Virginia,” said BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt. “Virginians are passionate sports fans, and we’re thrilled to provide them a user-friendly sports betting experience. BetMGM Virginia customers can earn benefits and will soon enjoy innovative experiences planned with MGM National Harbor in Maryland and the Washington Nationals.”
The BetMGM app gives Virginia sports fans the opportunity to customize pre-game, live in-play, futures and parlay wagers. The app’s integration with MGM Resorts’ M life Rewards program allows BetMGM customers to redeem their gameplay for world-class accommodations at MGM Resorts properties nationwide, including MGM National Harbor, MGM Grand, Bellagio and ARIA in Las Vegas, Borgata in New Jersey and Beau Rivage in Mississippi – among many more.
Jorge Perez, President & COO of MGM National Harbor, said, “MGM National Harbor is the premier entertainment destination for the DC-Maryland-Virginia region, and the launch of the BetMGM app in Virginia gives our customers another great way to interact with our brand. We’ve got the DMV covered with a variety of entertainment options – whether at Nationals Park in D.C., our MGM National Harbor resort, or via the mobile app in Virginia. Additionally, should Maryland allow casinos to operate sports betting, MGM National Harbor stands ready to add this amenity.”
Today’s announcement follows BetMGM’s recently announced partnership with the Washington Nationals, which includes plans for opening a retail BetMGM sportsbook connected to Nationals Park. Scheduled to launch later this season, it will be BetMGM’s first in-stadium sportsbook.
Virginia marks the 10th state where BetMGM’s mobile sports betting offering is available. As BetMGM continues to expand to new areas, responsible gaming education remains a key focus. BetMGM is proud to provide resources to help customers play responsibly. The BetMGM app is available for download in Virginia on both iOS and Android, and accessible via desktop at www.betmgm.com.
