Leading sports betting company, BetMGM, is expanding its digital wings with the launch of their mobile sports betting app in Puerto Rico, complementing the Casino del Mar at La Concha Resort. The debut marks BetMGM’s second market expansion outside of the U.S. mainland, offering a new playground for the local gaming enthusiasts.
Adam Greenblatt, CEO of BetMGM, beamed with pride as he spoke about the launch: “BetMGM is ecstatic to become the first operator to deliver mobile sports betting to Puerto Rico.”
He hailed this joint effort with Casino del Mar as a path-breaking move, delivering a “safe, responsible and entertaining product accessible from anywhere on the island.“
Betting in Puerto Rico: What to Expect
BetMGM’s user-friendly app offers local bettors a diverse range of wagering opportunities, including pre-game, live in-play, futures, and parlays.
In a bid to ensure legitimacy and safe gameplay, players must authenticate their identity in person at the BetMGM Sportsbook at the Casino Del Mar resort in San Juan during the registration process.
Continuing the Trend
BetMGM has been an industry pioneer in Puerto Rico since the legalization of regulated retail sports betting in February 2022. By December, Casino del Mar unveiled a plush $3.5 million sportsbook and lounge, equipped with 12 self-service kiosks and five betting windows.
Sigfrido De Jesús, General Manager of Casino del Mar, reflected on the significance of this development, stating, “Today, Puerto Rico is once again at the forefront of the sports betting industry… Creating this technological alliance with a company of BetMGM’s caliber has allowed both Casino del Mar and the government to learn about innovation in the betting industry.“
As part of their expansion, BetMGM remains committed to promoting responsible gambling. The company proudly provides GameSense, an industry-leading programme developed by the British Columbia Lottery Corporation, which offers guidance on responsible gameplay. This initiative supplements BetMGM’s existing responsible gambling tools, ensuring a secure and entertaining digital experience for its customers.
