BetMGM is looking to break into the horse race betting industry, and it has done so through a partnership with NYRA Bets. This is the first partnership of this kind for BetMGM and it will have a major impact on the current and future customers.
Through this partnership, customers will be able to watch and wager on horse racing events from over 200 race tracks worldwide. This will also allow BetMGM to break into states that do not allow sports betting but do have legal horse race betting available.
BetMGM CEO, Adam Greenblatt, had this to say about the new partnership:
“We’ve found a great partner in NYRA Bets and look forward to working with them to create a thrilling, interactive experience for horse racing fans on BetMGM.”
In order to prioritize horse race betting for its customers, BetMGM has launched a new Horse Racing app. The BetMGM Horse Racing app is available for download on both Android and Apple devices.
NYRA Bets is currently available in 30 states nationwide, and that access now becomes available to BetMGM as well. Daily horse racing content is available on the site, along with live streaming videos of the top horse races in the United States.
NYRA Bets President Tony Allevato was also excited about this partnership and what it will mean for his company moving forward. Allevato said:
“This is the type of partnership that reflects the importance of horse racing within the rapidly evolving sports betting marketplace.”
Horse racing became an even bigger focus in the US during the COVID-19 pandemic as it was one of the few sports still holding live races. BetMGM is a newer product as well, but the company has achieved rapid growth.
BetMGM continues to focus on educating customers on the importance of responsible gaming, with several programs available. Sports betting continues to be a major focus of BetMGM, but there is a chance to become a leader in the horse racing industry.
BetMGM was created through a partnership with MGM Resorts International and Entain, and it has become a pioneer in the US iGaming industry. BetMGM is known for offering sports betting and online casino gaming through a variety of popular brands.
Along with the popular BetMGM Brand, this company also offers iGaming through Borgata Casino, PartyPoker, and Party Casino. The company also has access to all of the MGM Resorts International properties worldwide and can use these as rewards for its loyal customers.
