In a timely launch that coincides with the upcoming Super Bowl, taking place on Sunday 13 February, BetMGM is now able to accept wagers through 12 kiosks and five betting windows at the resort, which is located in the island’s capital city of San Juan. 

Adam Greenblatt, CEO, BetMGM, commented: “This is a monumental day for BetMGM as 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.” 

The betting operator is also planning to launch its mobile betting app in Puerto Rico, while a full-scale retail sportsbook is scheduled to open at La Concha Resort later in 2022.  

Sigfrido de Jesús, General Manager, Casino del Mar, said: “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.” 

BetMGM was created from a partnership between Entain and MGM Resorts International, in April 2018, and currently operates in 18 states across the United States.  

La Concha Resort, which houses the always-open Casino del Mar, features 238 Caribbean-facing rooms, and a further 235 suites. The casino features slots, as well as table games such as blackjack, craps, poker and roulette.
