As part of an exclusive partnership with the Washington Nationals, BetMGM has made its sports betting app available in Washington, D.C.
The expansion now means that BetMGM will be the only mobile sports betting app available at Nationals Park. BetMGM believes that the expansion of its gaming platform will help “provide Nationals fans a unique opportunity to enhance their game day experience and bring them closer to the action on the field”.
“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,” said Adam Greenblatt, CEO of BetMGM.
“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.”
Under local restrictions, bettors will be required to be within a two-block radius of the stadium in order to place mobile wagers.
Alan Gottlieb, Chief Operating Office of Lerner Sports Group, added: “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.”
Jorge Perez, President & COO, MGM National Harbor, concluded: “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.”
