BetMGM, has become the latest sports betting operator to launch betting operations in Pennsylvania.
BetMGM, the joint venture between MGM Resorts International and Entain, has launched its online and mobile sportsbook in the state of Pennsylvania.
This comes after the online gambling operator launched its online casino product in the Keystone State on 4 December.
BetMGM joins the Pennsylvania betting market
Bettors in Pennsylvania will now be able to place pre-game and in-play sports wagers with BetMGM and take advantage of several promotions.
With this launch in Pennsylvania, BetMGM’s sportsbook app is now available in seven states including Colorado, Indiana, Nevada, New Jersey, Tennessee and West Virginia.
Pennsylvania bettors will be able to benefit from MGM Resorts’ integrated M Life Rewards scheme which will allow bettors in the Keystone State to redeem points for benefits and experiences across the country, including Bellagio and MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Borgata in New Jersey and MGM National Harbor in Maryland.
Adam Greenblatt, BetMGM CEO said: “The response to BetMGM Casino in Pennsylvania has been incredible and we’re thrilled to bring our best-in-class sports betting offering to the Keystone State.
“Pennsylvania is known for its legendary sports fans and we look forward to sharing the excitement of BetMGM with them.”
Earlier this month, the sportsbook operator became the first gaming partner of the National Football League’s (NFL) Pittsburgh Steelers.
Sports betting handle drops in November
According to the latest figures from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board sportsbooks in the Keystone State saw handle drop to $491.9m in November.
