BetMGM launches in Washington, D.C.
June 11, 2021
BetMGM expands its sports betting app into Washington, D.C. in partnership with the Washington National, which makes it the only sports betting mobile app available at National Parks. This move is part of BetMGM’s multi-year partnership with the Washington Nationals, which also includes a retail BetMGM Sportsbook connected to Nationals Park, scheduled to open later this year.
"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. 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," said Adam Greenblatt, CEO of BetMGM. "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," added Alan Gottlieb, Chief Operating Office of Lerner Sports Group. "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." BetMGM's gaming platform will provide Nationals fans a unique opportunity to enhance their game day experience and bring them closer to the action on the field.
The BetMGM app is now available for download on both iOS and Android in Washington, D.C. Due to local restrictions, users will need to be within a two-block radius of Nationals Park to place mobile wagers.
