WASHINGTON – BetMGM went live on Thursday at the Nationals Park in Washington, five months after publicizing their partnership with the MLB team.
The Washington Nationals games will have sports betting available for fans at the stadium via the BetMGM application as well as within a two-block radius of the venue.
Washington DC sports betting laws only allow for a radius of two-blocks from any sportsbook venue for gamblers to access their mobile platforms.
“As our official sports betting partner, BetMGM further enhances the greatest in-venue fan experience in Washington, D.C. through its state-of-the-art entertainment products and services,” said Alan Gottlieb, Chief Operating Office of Lerner Sports Group. “The BetMGM mobile app will enable our fans to engage with the game in new and exciting ways, while the BetMGM sportsbook connected to Nationals Park will provide Nationals fans and the D.C. community with a first-class gathering place to celebrate their passion for sports.”
What This Means For Nationals’ Fans
At the moment, the mobile sportsbook is the only thing that is available to Nationals’ fans in the area or at the game. Construction for a retail sportsbook within the stadium will begin later during the year.
“Launching in Washington, D.C. at Nationals Park sets the stage for our plans to expand BetMGM within the region, as we’ve already seen great success in Virginia,” said Adam Greenblatt, CEO of BetMGM. “The Washington Nationals have been a fantastic partner, committed to innovating the in-stadium fan experience and we’re looking forward to opening our retail sportsbook at the stadium later this year.”
BetMGM and their online sportsbook is already available for Nationals’ fans to use.
Branding as well as a number of bets for the MLB games are on the platform ready for sports bettors to gamble on the entire Nationals’ schedule.
The Washington Nationals will be one of the first teams in baseball to have launched their sports betting partnership, as many other teams are presently getting everything in order to do the same.
