BetMGM has been named as the Las Vegas Raiders’ official sports betting partner as American sportsbooks continue to strike agreements during the NFL regular season.

As part of the agreement, BetMGM will provide educational information of the sportsbooks app to Los Vegas Raiders’ fanbase, utilising a variety of assets along the way.

“We are pleased to add BetMGM to the MGM Resorts partnership portfolio,” commented Raiders President Marc Badain. “The addition of BetMGM will open new levels of engagement for Raiders fans and guests of Allegiant Stadium.”

BetMGM’s CEO, Adam Greenblatt, added: “We’re thrilled that BetMGM is the first Official Sports Betting Partner of The Las Vegas Raiders. 

“This new partnership complements what is already a wonderful and rewarding relationship with MGM Resorts and the Raiders and we look forward to introducing Raiders fans to the excitement of sports betting with BetMGM.”

The agreement further enhances MGM Resorts and the Raiders’ relationship with the global hospitality and entertainment company being a founding partner of the Allegiant Stadium. In addition to the firm’s in-stadia branding and private club, MGM resorts will also be the presenting sponsor of the Raiders first-ever regular season game at Allegiant Stadium on September 21.   

MGM Resorts CEO and President, Bill Hornbuckle, stated: “All of us at MGM Resorts are proud to welcome the Raiders and the NFL to Las Vegas. We look forward to providing Raiders fans a world-class sports betting and entertainment experience, both in our BetMGM Sportsbooks and digitally, through the BetMGM mobile app.”  

Both MGM Resorts and BetMGM have also maintained that through the company’s growth responsible gaming education remains a key focus. This is why MGM Resorts has collaborated with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) on its GameSense program, which focuses on positive, transparent and proactive conversations with players about how to gamble responsibly.
