History was made today as BetMGM took in the first sports bet from outer space.
Jared Isaacman, mission commander of SpaceX’s Inspiration4 mission, made the first sports bet from outer space with the BetMGM sportsbook at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, with proceeds going to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
As legal sports betting rapidly expands across the country, Isaacman, Founder and CEO of Shift4 Payments, teamed up with BetMGM to launch sports betting into a new orbit.
The two wagers placed
- $4,000 on the Over (40.5) in the Washington Football Team vs. the New York Giants Week 2 game
- $4,000 on the Philadelphia Eagles to win the 2022 Super Bowl

All winnings from Isaacman’s bets placed from space will go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
BetMGM has also donated $25,000 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
