Sports betting leader debuts in The Buckeye State with mobile and retail offerings 

NORTHFIELD PARK, OH (January 1, 2023) – BetMGM, a leading sports betting and iGaming operator, announced today the launch of mobile and retail sports betting operations in Ohio. Fans across The Buckeye State now have access to the BetMGM mobile app and can also place wagers within BetMGM’s retail sportsbooks located at MGM Northfield Park and the Great American Ball Park.

“Today marks a monumental day of growth for both BetMGM and the sports betting industry,” said Adam Greenblatt, BetMGM CEO. “Ohio is home to thousands of passionate sports fans, who now have the opportunity to enjoy first-hand the excitement and benefits of wagering with BetMGM.”

The BetMGM app features a user-friendly platform, giving Ohio sports fans the ability to customize pre-game, live in-play, futures, and parlay wagers. Additionally, integration with MGM Rewards allows BetMGM users to redeem their gameplay for world-class experiences at MGM Resorts properties nationwide, including MGM Northfield Park, MGM Grand Detroit, and MGM Grand, Bellagio and ARIA in Las Vegas.

BetMGM also announced today the opening of two new retail sportsbooks in the Cleveland and Cincinnati metro areas.

  • MGM Northfield Park: Located just outside of Cleveland, the BetMGM Sportsbook at MGM Northfield Park can be found within the award-winning gaming, dining, and entertainment destination. The BetMGM Sportsbook at MGM Northfield Park features an LED video wall and makes it easy for guests to access a variety of sports wagering options including five betting windows and 14 kiosks.
  • Great American Ball Park: As the Official Sports Betting Partner of the Cincinnati Reds, BetMGM debuted an in-stadium sportsbook at the Great American Ball Park that is open to guests year-round. The 6,244 square foot space features 15 betting kiosks and three betting windows. The BetMGM Sportsbook at Great American Ball Park is located on the northeast side of the stadium and is accessible via the arena plaza level entrance. 

Matt Buckley, President & COO, Midwest Group, MGM Resorts International, said, “The addition of legalized sports betting at MGM Northfield Park strengthens our reputation as Ohio’s premier entertainment destination. This new amenity will give our guests the ultimate sports viewing experience, while creating more jobs and economic growth for the state.”  

As BetMGM continues to expand to new markets, 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.

The BetMGM app is available for download in Ohio as well as on desktop at www.betmgm.com. For more information, follow @BetMGM on Twitter.
