A legendary iGaming and sports betting operator BetMGM is expanding to the Puerto Rican market thanks to the partnership with the Casino del Mar at La Concha Resort.
Its mobile sports betting app will be available to Puerto Rican customers, and this is a huge success for the company since it’s the second market, besides the mainland U.S., to whom the company will present its unique app.
User-friendly app for the Puerto Rican market:
Adam Greenblatt, CEO of BetMGM, commented: “BetMGM is ecstatic to become the first operator to deliver mobile sports betting to Puerto Rico. This great collaboration between local officials and Casino del Mar provides a safe, responsible, and entertaining product accessible from anywhere on the island.”
The app is completely user-friendly, allowing customers to customize various features to fit their needs. They can get custom pre-game, live-in play, futures, and parlay bets.
However, before the user can access the app, they need to validate the identification, which they can do at the Casino del Mar in San Juan, where the BetMGM Sportsbook is situated.
The app is also integrated with the MGM Rewards loyalty program, so Puerto Ricans will be able to play for get a chance to enjoy the MGM Resorts properties in Bellagio, ARIA, and MGM Grand in Las Vegas, as well as Beau Rivage in Mississippi, Borgata in New Jersey, and Detroit’s MGM Grand.
Retail sports betting in Puerto Rico was legalized in February 2022, and BetMGM was the first to offer its services to Puerto Rican customers. In December of the same year, Casino del Mar completed the construction of its sportsbook and lounge, whose worth was $3.5 million.
Since last year, customers have been able to bet on all sporting events, including electronic and Esports events.
Safe and secure environment for the Casino del Mar’s customers:
Sigfrido de Jesús, a General Manager of Casino del Mar, said: “Today, Puerto Rico is once again at the forefront of the sports betting industry. In addition to being an attraction for sports fans, this will have a positive impact on the revenues of the Treasury. We are pioneers in the sports wagering industry, and we are elevating sports to the next level by developing trustworthy and user-friendly technology tools. Creating this technological alliance with a company of BetMGM’s caliber has allowed both Casino del Mar and the government to learn about innovation in the betting industry.”
BetMGM will continue to be one of the loudest advocates of responsible gaming, which proves the fact that in Puerto Rico, the players have an obligation to personally verify their identifications. One of their largest successes in that field is creating GameSense, a program created by the British Columbia Lottery Corporation specifically for the needs of MGM Resorts, and it is integrated into the BetMGM mobile and desktop platforms as well, contributing to maintaining a safe gaming experience for all the company’s loyal customers.
