Sports betting leader expands mobile platform outside of U.S. mainland complementing retail sportsbook at Casino del Mar at La Concha Resort
SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO (June 8, 2023) – BetMGM, a leading sports betting and iGaming operator, announced the launch of the BetMGM mobile sports betting app in Puerto Rico in partnership with Casino del Mar at La Concha Resort. Puerto Rico is the second market outside of the U.S. mainland for BetMGM’s mobile sports betting app.
Adam Greenblatt - Chief Executive Officer, BetMGM
The BetMGM app offers a user-friendly experience, giving Puerto Rico residents the ability to customize pre-game, live in-play, futures and parlay wagers. As part of the BetMGM mobile app registration process, customers in Puerto Rico will need to validate their identification in person at the BetMGM Sportsbook located at the Casino Del Mar resort in San Juan. Integration with the MGM Rewards loyalty program allows residents in Puerto Rico to redeem their gameplay for world-class experiences at MGM Resorts properties nationwide including Bellagio, ARIA and MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Beau Rivage in Mississippi, Borgata in New Jersey and MGM Grand Detroit.
BetMGM was the first operator to debut regulated retail sports betting in Puerto Rico when it was legalized in February 2022. In December 2022, Casino del Mar opened a permanent $3.5 million sportsbook and lounge, featuring 12 self-service kiosks and five betting windows. Sports wagering is permitted in Puerto Rico on all sporting events, including those that are professional, collegiate, Olympic, and international. Wagering is permitted on electronic and Esports events as well.
Sigfrido De Jesús - General Manager of Casino del Mar
As BetMGM continues to expand to new jurisdictions, responsible gambling education remains a key focus. BetMGM is proud to provide resources to help customers play responsibly including GameSense, an industry leading program, developed and licensed to MGM Resorts by the British Columbia Lottery Corporation. Through the integration within BetMGM’s mobile and desktop platforms, customers can receive the same GameSense experience they have grown to count on at MGM Resorts properties nationwide. This complements BetMGM’s already existing responsible gambling tools which serve to provide customers with an entertaining and safe digital experience.
