A leading operator in the sports betting and iGaming industry, BetMGM, has shared some exciting news about its operations. Both mobile and retail sports betting operations will be launched in Ohio.
Two famous properties:
Players across the state already have access to the operator’s mobile app, and, in some places, wagers can already be placed. The retail sportsbooks that belong to BetMGM can be found at MGM Northfield Park and the Great American Ball Park.
Adam Greenblatt, CEO at BetMGM, said: “Today marks a monumental day of growth for both BetMGM and the sports betting industry. 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 platform that BetMGM uses for wagering is, in the first place, user-friendly. This enables the loyal fans from Ohio to customize their profile in the way that fits them best, offering pre-game customization, live in-play, futures, as well as parlay wagers.
The company joined forces with MGM Rewards, which enables customers to redeem the chosen gameplay for extraordinary experiences across many MGM Resorts in the country. Some of the properties included are MGM Northfield Park, MGM Grand Detroit, MGM Grand, Bellagio, and, of course, ARIA, which is located in Las Vegas.
Also, two new retail sportsbooks are opened in metro areas in Cleveland and Cincinnati.
The property in Cleveland, MGM Northfield Park, is located just outside of the city area. The BetMGM Sportsbook and MGM Northfield Park are situated at a top-rated destination that has already been awarded the best place for gaming, dining, and entertainment.
The most exciting feature of the property is an LED video wall. It eases the whole process of accessing different sports wagering options, along with five betting windows and 14 kiosks.
The second property is Great American Ball Park. BetMGM here became the Official Sports Betting Partner of the Cincinnati Reds. This in-stadium sportsbook is open to guests during the whole year. It is located across 6.244 square feet and contains 15 betting kiosks and three betting windows.
The guests can enter the BetMGM Sportsbook via the arena plaza level entrance on the northeast corner of the famous stadium.
The main goal – responsible gambling:
Matt Buckley, President & COO of 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.”
The key factor in BetMGM’s mission is responsible gambling education. There are different programs and tools available to the company’s customers, all of which help customers learn more about responsible playing. Game Sense, the program that was developed for MGM Resorts by the British Columbia Lottery Corporation, made a fundamental change when it came to responsibility in the industry.
BetMGM isn’t the only operator that recently got launched in Ohio – DraftKings also made a debut in the state, making Ohio an amazing place for gamblers and players.
