BetMGM Launches Mobile Sports Betting in Maryland
Online Platform Complements MGM National Harbor’s Retail Sportsbook
NATIONAL HARBOR, Md., Nov. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — BetMGM, a leading sports betting and iGaming operator, launched its mobile app in Maryland today giving customers access to a variety of online betting options and benefits tied to MGM Resorts‘ premier destinations nationwide, including MGM National Harbor.
“This is a significant milestone that elevates our vision to deliver world-class entertainment to sports fans in the DC-Maryland-Virginia (DMV) region,” said BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt. “The convenience of our best in-class mobile app connects directly to the engaging atmosphere we’ve created in our retail sportsbooks at MGM National Harbor and Nationals Park.”
The BetMGM app offers a user-friendly sports betting platform experience, giving Maryland sports fans the ability to customize pre-game, live in-play, futures and parlay wagers. Additionally, integration with MGM Rewards allows Maryland’s BetMGM users to redeem their gameplay for world-class experiences at MGM Resorts properties nationwide including MGM Grand, Bellagio and ARIA in Las Vegas, Borgata in New Jersey, and Beau Rivage in Mississippi.
The mobile app complements the BetMGM Sportsbook & Lounge at MGM National Harbor that opened in December 2021. The BetMGM Sportsbook features a 360-degree jumbotron and 110-foot state-of-the-art wrap-around screen. MGM National Harbor has more than 40 sports betting kiosks located throughout the casino, a second BetMGM Sportsbook on the casino’s second level and a BetMGM betting counter and four kiosks at TAP Sports Bar.
Melonie Johnson, MGM National Harbor’s President & COO, said, “Today’s announcement is monumental as it allows us to expand our sports betting offerings and connect with guests beyond our resort’s walls. The BetMGM Sportsbook & Lounge is an incredible amenity, and the addition of the mobile app further enhances our customer experience.”
BetMGM strengthened its commitment to the DMV in January 2022 when it opened the first retail sportsbook connected to a Major League Baseball stadium at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. That followed the launch of the BetMGM mobile app in Virginia in January 2021.
As BetMGM continues to expand to new markets, responsible gambling education remains a key focus. BetMGM is proud to provide resources to help customers play responsibly including GameSense, an industry leading program, developed and licensed to MGM Resorts by the British Columbia Lottery Corporation. Through the integration within BetMGM’s mobile and desktop platforms, customers can receive the same GameSense experience they have grown to count on at MGM Resorts properties nationwide. This complements BetMGM’s already existing responsible gambling tools which serve to provide customers with an entertaining and safe digital experience.
The BetMGM app is available for download in Maryland on iOS, with Android soon to follow, as well as on desktop at www.betmgm.com. For more information, follow @BetMGM on Twitter.
