BetMGM will host a Vegas-style event at Newcastle Racecourse this weekend.

The event will be open to premium ticket holders aged 18 and over who have downloaded the BetMGM app, with additional chances to win tickets through BetMGM’s social media pages.

The lounge will be located by the Horsewalk and will have refreshments for guests, with additional entertainment and viewing opportunities.

BetMGM has arranged for live musicians and magicians to be at the lounge, with guests also able to interact with casino games and horse racing simulators.

Players who partake in the casino games, which will include blackjack and roulette, will have the opportunity to win a £100 ($126) STK voucher.

All players who enter the lounge will be given a complimentary BetMGM-branded scarf.

Sam Behar, BetMGM UK Director, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome racing fans to the BetMGM Lounge at the Fighting Fifth Hurdle this weekend, where they can experience an exciting racecard alongside a taste of classic Las Vegas entertainment.

“There will be no better place to watch Constitution Hill than our exclusive lounge, and it promises to be an unforgettable experience for racing fans as we bring the spirit of Las Vegas to the heart of Newcastle.”

The Fighting Fifth Hurdle is a Grade One hurdle race that covers just over two miles at the Newcastle Racecourse.

It started in 1969 and was named after the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers, an infantry regiment in the British Army.

The race is the first leg in the Triple Crown of Hurdling and is currently sponsored by BetMGM.

This isn't the only move that BetMGM has made in Newcastle though, as it announced a multi-year partnership with Newcastle United Football Club earlier this year.
