ROAR Digital, the joint venture between MGM Resorts International and GVC Holdings, has firmed up a long-term partnership with the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde in which it will become the exclusive sports betting partner.

The alliance kicks off this year with the opening of a BetMGM Sportsbook at Spirit Mountain Casino, the largest casino in Oregon. Along with retail sports betting, ROAR Digital will roll out an on-reservation mobile sports betting app, as well as an eventual state-wide online sports betting offering, as it becomes available to the tribe, pending regulatory approval.

Adam Greenblatt, CEO of ROAR Digital, welcomed the tie-up, saying: “We have found a great partner in the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde and Spirit Mountain Casino and look forward to working with the tribe to bring a leading retail and online sports betting experience to Oregon.”

Stan Dillon, General Manager of Spirit Mountain Casino, commented: “This joint venture between two of the gaming industry’s most recognizable brands will bring a world class sports betting offering to Oregon. We’re excited to launch this partnership with BetMGM, which will allow us to extend our established position as the Northwest’s premier entertainment destination.”

With 13 BetMGM Sportsbooks across Nevada, Mississippi, Michigan and New Jersey, as well as a mobile sports betting app, BetMGM uses an exclusive betting engine that allows sports fans to place bets quickly, safely and with ease. The firm also offers an extensive range of online poker and casino games, where permitted.
