IGaming and sports betting operator BetMGM has debuted its sports betting app in Puerto Rico, complementing its retail sportsbook partner, at Casino del Mar at La Concha Resort in San Juan.

Sports betting was legalised in Puerto Rico in February 2022. BetMGM is the first operator to deliver mobile sports betting to Puerto Rico. 

The mobile app offers customers the ability to customise pre-game, live in-play, futures and parlay wagers. As part of the application process, users in Puerto Rico will need to provide ID in person at the BetMGM sportsbook located at the resort in San Juan.

Earlier this year, BetMGM launched retail sports betting in Massachusetts. Alongside its sports betting offering, BetMGM will be integrating with MGM Rewards, allowing Massachusetts-based online customers to redeem gameplay rewards for experiences at MGM Resorts properties throughout the US.  

Sigfrido De Jesús, GM of Casino del Mar, said: "Today, Puerto Rico is once again at the forefront of the sports betting industry. In addition to being an attraction for sports fans, this will have a positive impact on the revenues of the Treasury. We are pioneers in the sports wagering industry and we are elevating sports to the next level by developing trustworthy and user-friendly technology tools. 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."

Adam Greenblatt, CEO of BetMGM, said: "BetMGM is ecstatic to become the first operator to deliver mobile sports betting to Puerto Rico. This great collaboration between local officials and Casino del Mar provides a safe, responsible and entertaining product accessible from anywhere on the island."
