BetMGM, the betting brand operated through the Entain and MGM Resorts joint venture Roar Digital, has secured a multi-year partnership with Major League Baseball franchise the Washington Nationals.
Under the deal, BetMGM will open a retail sportsbook inside the team’s Nationals Park home ballpark.
The wagering facility will not be open to fans attending matches, but supporters will be able to place bets via the BetMGM mobile application, which is licensed to operate within a permitted area around the stadium.
This is due to the regulations passed by the DC Council, which gives the DC Lottery’s Intralot-powered Gambet app exclusive rights to offer mobile wagering across the city.
The agreement will also see BetMGM become the official sports betting partner of the Nationals and benefit from branding opportunities at Nationals Park, as well as on the franchise’s media and digital platforms.
