Leading digital gaming operator enters 22nd market
BetMGM, a leading sports betting and iGaming operator, launched its mobile app in Illinois over the weekend. Customers in Illinois now can access BetMGM’s state-of-the-art online sports wagering platform, providing a wide variety of betting options as well as access to earn experiences at MGM Resorts’ premier destinations across the country.
“This launch marks a significant milestone for BetMGM as we enter one of the country’s biggest sports betting markets,” said BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt. “We look forward to working with the state of Illinois to bring its passionate sports fans a new, innovative and unique sports betting experience.”
The BetMGM app features a user-friendly sports betting platform, making it easy to customize pre-game, live in-play, futures and parlay wagers. Customers can engage in BetMGM’s exclusive free-to-play contests surrounding marquee sporting events as well as the popular One Game Parlay product where players can combine their wagers on a single game to earn even larger payouts.
BetMGM recently launched BetMGM Rewards, a world-class loyalty program offering customers the opportunity to earn points with every wager placed. The points can be redeemed for accomodations and experiences at MGM Resorts properties nationwide including Bellagio and MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Borgata in Atlantic City, MGM Grand Detroit, MGM Northfield Park in Ohio, MGM National Harbor in Maryland, and Beau Rivage in Mississippi.
As BetMGM continues to expand its sports betting platforms to new states, responsible gaming 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 will receive the same GameSense experience they have grown to count on at MGM Resorts properties nationwide. This complements BetMGM’s already existing responsible gaming tools which serve to provide customers with an entertaining and safe digital experience.
