BetMGM is now available to bettors in the state of Nevada.
BetMGM, the sports betting brand operated by Roar Digital, the joint venture between GVC Holdings and MGM Resorts, has officially launched in the state of Nevada.
This news comes just days after the sports betting brand launched its sports betting app in the state of Indiana.

The launch of BetMGM in the Silver State will include the launch of the operator’s mobile sports betting app and the rebranding of MGM Resort’s Sportsbook venues and more than 100 existing kiosks located across MGM’s properties in Vegas.
BetMGM will also integrate with M life Rewards, MGM Resorts’ loyalty program where users can earn points which can be exchanged for rewards at MGM venues.
Adam Greenblatt, CEO of Roar Digital, said: “We’re proud to formally introduce the new BetMGM app in Nevada today. MGM Resorts’ iconic properties across Las Vegas and GVC’s technology combine to deliver a streamlined sports betting experience that’s easy to use and exciting to play, giving BetMGM a leading edge in the industry.”
Scott Butera, President of Interactive Gaming for MGM Resorts, said: “MGM Resorts has emerged as a leader in sports betting, striking significant partnerships with professional sports leagues, expanding our market reach and harnessing best-in-class mobile technology from Roar Digital, powered by GVC.
“Beyond sports, we continue to offer new and exciting amenities at our properties as we’ve found our sport bettors appreciate world-class hotels, restaurants and entertainment; BetMGM allows us to incorporate them into the ecosystem of everything MGM has to offer.”
With the launch of BetMGM in Nevada, the operator now has a presence in a total of four states including New Jersey, West Virginia and Indiana.
Sports betting in Nevada
Up until the repeal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in 2018, Nevada was the only state to offer legal and regulated sports betting in the US. Now that other states can authorise the activity, Nevada is facing competition from other US jurisdictions such as New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
In Nevada, residents and visitors can bet on sports in person at a land-based sportsbook at a casino or via a mobile betting app. However, users must first register an online account in person at one of the state’s casinos which is quite inconvenient for consumers hoping to place a quick bet.
States like New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Indiana allow users to register their accounts remotely from anywhere within state lines which makes it even easier and much more convenient to place a bet.
