BetMGM and the Washington Nationals have opened a retail sportsbook at Nationals Park, making it the first sportsbook connected to a Major League Baseball (MLB) stadium.
The BetMGM Sportsbook at Nationals Park features 40 big-screen TVs with live odds boards. Customers can place bets with cashiers at six betting windows or use self-service kiosks.
“We’re constantly pushing the boundaries to deliver sports fans unique experiences, and that’s just what we’ve done with the new BetMGM Sportsbook at Nationals Park,” said Adam Greenblatt, CEO of BetMGM.
“Whether fans are attending baseball games or looking for a place to watch any sporting event, the BetMGM Sportsbook at Nationals Park is bound to be one of the most engaging sports viewing environments in the district.”
BetMGM entered into a multi-year agreement with the Washington Nationals team in June last year, with plans to launch the retail sportsbook and the BetMGM mobile sports betting app.
“The DC-Maryland–Virginia region is a great look into how we’re seeking to expand the BetMGM platform with a variety of unique experiences for our customers,” continued Greenblatt.
“They can utilize the BetMGM mobile app anywhere in Virginia, can visit the newly opened retail sportsbook at MGM National Harbor in Maryland, and now in D.C. they can access the first sportsbook connected to a Major League Baseball stadium.”
BetMGM launched sports betting in Virginia in January last year, and opened a sportsbook at the MGM National Harbor the following December.
