BetMGM Launches Mobile Sports Betting in Arizona
Leading sports betting operator enters 15th market
BetMGM announced today the launch of its industry-leading digital sports betting platform in Arizona. Arizona marks the 15th market in which BetMGM’s mobile and online products are available.
“We’re pleased to officially bring BetMGM’s mobile sports betting offering to fans in Arizona in time for football season,” said BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt. “We’ve built strategic partnerships with Gila River Hotels & Casinos and the Arizona Cardinals, two key players in the state, enabling us to create one-of-a-kind experiences for our Arizona customers.”
Gila River’s three Arizona locations owned by the Gila River Indian Community, Wild Horse Pass, Lone Butte, and Vee Quiva, will feature BetMGM Sportsbooks scheduled to open later this year. BetMGM also plans to open a first of its kind BetMGM Sportsbook at State Farm Stadium, home of the Cardinals, in time for the 2022 football season.
The BetMGM app offers a user-friendly sports betting experience, making it easy to customize pre-game, in-play, futures and parlay wagers. BetMGM’s integration with MGM Resorts’ M life Rewards program gives Arizona’s BetMGM players the ability to redeem their gameplay for world-class experiences at MGM Resorts properties, including Bellagio and MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Borgata in New Jersey, MGM National Harbor in Maryland, Beau Rivage in Mississippi and MGM Grand Detroit.
As BetMGM continues to expand its sports betting and iGaming platform into new states, 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 Arizona on both iOS and Android, and is accessible via desktop at www.betmgm.com. For more information, follow @BetMGM on Twitter.
