BetMGM DC sportsbook launch

BetMGM sportsbook is now live in Washington DC! The market-leading sports betting app launched in the Federal Capital State after making a multi-year partnership with the Washington Nationals. This launch is just an addition to an ever-growing list of states with the BetMGM platform available for online sports betting.

BetMGM sports betting app is fully functional in the District of Columbia. Players can access the DC-specific app on both Android and iOS devices. As of now, BetMGM is the only mobile sports betting app available at Nationals Park. They also have plans to launch a retail BetMGM Sportsbook connected to Nationals Park, scheduled to open later this year. 

BetMGM DC Sportsbook Launch

BetMGM is one of the go-to sports betting apps in several legal sports betting markets. Now, Washington D.C. officially joined a growing list of states that have recently launched the popular online sports betting platform including Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Michigan. 

BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt said, “Launching in Washington, D.C. at Nationals Park sets the stage for our plans to expand BetMGM within the region, as we’ve already seen great success in Virginia.”

MGM Resorts owns MGM National Harbor in Maryland, which sits minutes away from DC. Also, BetMGM is operating in Virginia, which is just over the DC southern border. The BetMGM DC sportsbook is going to be a great success as the majority of bets placed will be by commuters from Maryland and Virginia while in DC.

Bettors can now create a BetMGM account, view updated odds, make a deposit, place bets, and make a withdrawal anywhere in Washington D.C. However, you must be within a two-block radius of Nationals Park to place a bet. Meaning, BetMGM uses the latest geolocation technology to determine eligibility. Hence, sports fans must step into the Bettor’s Box, a specified area in and around Nationals Park, to bet online.

DC bettors can advantage of an excellent $600 risk-free BetMGM promotion available for new users.

BetMGM and Washington Nationals Partnership

On June 10th, BetMGM announced a partnership with Washington Nationals. This multi-year collaboration will provide a distinct opportunity to the Nationals fans to improve their game-day experiences. The BetMGM mobile app will enable Nationals’ fans to engage with the game in new and exciting ways. 

“The Washington Nationals have been a fantastic partner, committed to innovating the in-stadium fan experience. We’re looking forward to opening our retail sportsbook at the stadium later this year,” Adam Greenblatt said.

BetMGM’s M life Rewards program allows Nationals fans the opportunity to redeem their gameplay for world-class experiences at MGM Resorts properties nationwide.
