BetMGM competing with FanDuel, DraftKings for Indiana customers
Indiana’s sports gambling market is getting heavy as BetMGM finally launches
Since sports betting was legalized in the Hoosier State, over 13 locations, including casinos and other gaming facilities, are taking sports wagers in person and online. Indiana already has two huge operators offering online sports wagers, and there is one more addition that will bring even more competition, BetMGM. Next to FanDuel and DraftKings, BetMGM is bringing to the sports betting market, as of yesterday, its new and attractive sports betting app. It is entering the Indiana market thanks to an agreement with Boyd Gaming.
MGM Resorts International joined forces with GVC Holdings to create its BetMGM sportsbook through its venture, Roar Digital, LLC. “Introducing BetMGM in Indiana is a significant development for Roar Digital and MGM Resorts,” said Scott Butera, President of Interactive Gaming for MGM Resorts in a released statement. “Indiana has a rich history in professional and amateur sports and a strong fan base. We are certain that the sports betting opportunities offered by BetMGM, and access to MGM’s world-class entertainment offerings and resorts, will be well-received.”
The app is available for both iOS and Android where sports bettors can download and place legal wagers on professional and college events. According to MGM, it offers innovative features, such as sports events live-streamed directly in the app.
Indiana’s market for sports wagering is still growing, and, in January, an all-time high record was reported as $170.8 million were wagered the whole first month of this year, according to the Indiana Gaming Commission. “Indiana marks an incredibly important expansion for us as we look to solidify our presence in the Midwest and continue to bring BetMGM to new states in the U.S,” said Adam Greenblatt, Chief Executive Officer, Roar Digital in a statement.
