BetMGM has signed an agreement this week to utilize IMG ARENA’s Golf Event Centre product, a front-end sports wagering solution that enables interactive, in-play betting on the sport.
Created in association with the world’s leading golf tours, the Golf Event Centre enables golf fans and bettors to find fast, comprehensive, shot-by-shot data and markets, and live streaming which is purpose-built for in-play betting, and interactive course visualizations. It is available to sports betting operators worldwide where betting is legal.
Ryan Spoon, Chief Operating Officer, BetMGM, commented: “The Golf Event Centre allows us to introduce a totally new and captivating concept to BetMGM customers. It’s a product that is both useful and exciting, putting a wealth of information at players’ fingertips, with an intuitive and interactive delivery that augments golf viewing and betting.”
Max Wright, SVP Commercial of IMG ARENA, said: “BetMGM has embraced the Golf Event Centre platform that we have worked so closely with our key federation partners to create. The Golf Event Centre is an incredible product that allows operators the ability to genuinely differentiate their sportsbook offering on one of the world’s most popular sports.”
Scott Warfield, Vice President of Gaming at the PGA TOUR, added: “The Golf Event Centre is a first-class product that will transcend sports betting on golf.

These holes will be captured by three cameras tee-to-green and feature dedicated shot and hole score bets for each group that arrives on tee. To learn more about the Golf Event Center product visit:
