BetMGM has launched its mobile sports betting app at Nationals Park. The launch is part of a partnership signed between the operator and Washington Nationals.
BetMGM is the only mobile sports betting app available now at Nationals Park. BetMGM will also open a retail sportsbook connected to the stadium, later this year.
“Launching in Washington, D.C. at Nationals Park sets the stage for our plans to expand BetMGM within the region, as we’ve already seen great success in Virginia. The Washington Nationals have been a fantastic partner, committed to innovating the in-stadium fan experience and we’re looking forward to opening our retail sportsbook at the stadium later this year,” Adam Greenblatt, CEO of BetMGM, said.
The BetMGM app is now available for download on both iOS and Android in Washington, D.C. While the app can be accessed throughout the District, due to local restrictions, to successfully place mobile wagers, users will need to be within a two-block radius of Nationals Park.
“As our official sports betting partner, BetMGM further enhances the greatest in-venue fan experience in Washington, D.C. through its state-of-the-art entertainment products and services. The BetMGM mobile app will enable our fans to engage with the game in new and exciting ways, while the BetMGM sportsbook connected to Nationals Park will provide Nationals fans and the D.C. community with a first-class gathering place to celebrate their passion for sports,” Alan Gottlieb, COO of Nationals owner Lerner Sports Group, said.
BetMGM’s integration with MGM Resorts’ M life Rewards program allows Nationals fans the opportunity to redeem their gameplay for world-class experiences at MGM Resorts properties nationwide.
“As a leader in delivering monumental experiences, today is a very exciting day for MGM National Harbor. This becomes the first of many offerings we are developing to seamlessly connect sports and entertainment across the DMV, providing fans with unique opportunities to interact with our world-class resort and casino,” Jorge Perez, President and COO of MGM National Harbor, said.
