Old Dominion has become the target of further US expansions, as BetMGM and International Game Technology, through its FanDuel collaboration, detail entries into Virginia.
Representing its tenth state of availability, the MGM Resorts International and Entain joint venture allows sports fans to customise pre-game, live in-play, futures and parlay wagers.
Furthermore, the app’s integration with the M life Rewards program allows customers to redeem their gameplay for accommodation at MGM Resorts properties nationwide, including MGM National Harbor, MGM Grand, Bellagio and Aria in Las Vegas, Borgata in New Jersey and Beau Rivage in Mississippi, and many more.
“We’re ecstatic that BetMGM is one of the first mobile sports betting platforms to launch in Virginia,” said Adam Greenblatt BetMGM CEO. “Virginians are passionate sports fans, and we’re thrilled to provide them a user-friendly sports betting experience.
“BetMGM Virginia customers can earn benefits and will soon enjoy innovative experiences planned with MGM National Harbor in Maryland and the Washington Nationals.”
Furthermore, IGT’s PlaySports platform is powering the FanDuel Group’s sports wagering entity in the state, with the pair having teamed-up to deliver sports betting in twelve states, including nine with mobile entries.
“We are excited to continue to grow our geographical and operational footprint with the launch of legal sports betting in the Commonwealth of Virginia late last week,” noted Niall Connell, senior vice president of general manager of FanDuel Sportsbook.
“These are complex launches with individualised state-by-state requirements that require experienced partners like IGT.”
Virginia joins New Jersey, Tennessee, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Indiana, Illinois and Iowa as states where players can enjoy IGT PlaySports-powered FanDuel Sportsbook apps.
“We are proud of the role IGT has played in helping FanDuel Group build the player-preferred sports betting solution in the US market,” added Enrico Drago IGT PlayDigital senior vice president.
“The IGT PlaySports platform is aiding FanDuel as it scales new market opportunities such as its recent launch in Virginia and enabling FanDuel to deliver its multi-state sports betting enterprise.”
