Ahead of its clash against the New Orleans Saints, the Las Vegas Raiders have announced that BetMGM will be the team’s official betting partner for the 2020 NFL campaign.

The agreement looks to further enhance MGM Resorts relationship with the Raiders’. The global hospitality and entertainment company has already been announced as a founding partner of the Allegiant Stadium.This means that in addition to the firm’s in-stadia branding and private club, MGM Resorts will also be the presenting sponsor of the Raiders first-ever regular season game at Allegiant Stadium on September 21.   

As part of the agreement with BetMGM, the sportsbook will provide educational information of the sportsbook app to Las Vegas Raiders’ fanbase, utilizing a variety of assets along the way.

BetMGM’s CEO, Adam Greenblatt, said: “We’re thrilled that BetMGM is the first Official Sports Betting Partner of The Las Vegas Raiders. 

“This new partnership complements what is already a wonderful and rewarding relationship with MGM Resorts and the Raiders and we look forward to introducing Raiders fans to the excitement of sports betting with BetMGM.”

Raiders President Marc Badain, added: “We are pleased to add BetMGM to the MGM Resorts partnership portfolio. The addition of BetMGM will open new levels of engagement for Raiders fans and guests of Allegiant Stadium.”

Both MGM Resorts and BetMGM have also maintained that through the company’s growth responsible gaming education remains a key focus. This is why MGM Resorts has collaborated with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) on its GameSense program, which focuses on positive, transparent and proactive conversations with players about how to gamble responsibly. 

MGM Resorts CEO and President Bill Hornbuckle, stated: “All of us at MGM Resorts are proud to welcome the Raiders and the NFL to Las Vegas. We look forward to providing Raiders fans a world-class sports betting and entertainment experience, both in our BetMGM Sportsbooks and digitally, through the BetMGM mobile app.”
