In partnership with the Casino del Mar at La Concha Resort, San Juan, BetMGM has launched the first ever legalized sports betting service on the island of Puerto Rico.
“This is a monumental day for BetMGM,” commented CEO, Adam Greenblatt. “It marks the launch of our first operation outside of the US mainland. Casino del Mar delivers exceptional guest experiences and is an ideal partner as we look to extend our brand in Puerto Rico.”
Coinciding nicely with Super Bowl LVI on February 13th, the launch enabled BetMGM to accept bets via five betting windows and 12 kiosks, with a mobile betting app and a dedicated retail sportsbook both scheduled to follow later in the year.
Casino del Mar’s General Manager, Sigfrido de Jesús, added: “We are very excited to kick off sports betting at Casino del Mar through this important strategic alliance with BetMGM. In Puerto Rico, there is a wide base of sports fans who will now add the possibility of becoming winners to the excitement of their favourite sports games and matches.”
