Raynham Park has partnered with bet365 as it seeks to offer mobile sports betting in the state of Massachusetts.
Bet365 has applied for a tethered category three online gaming license in the Bay State, which was confirmed by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission earlier this week.
Set to open its doors in spring 2023, the Raynham Park sportsbook will be located just south of Boston and feature more than 30,000 square feet of gaming space, two restaurants, bars, private event space, and more in a 60,000-square-foot entertainment complex.
The retail sportsbook applied for a category two license in Massachusetts, which only current horse tracks or simulcast facilities are eligible for.
“We are thrilled to partner with the world’s largest online sports betting company to offer this high-demand entertainment option to our customers,” commented Raynham Park Founder, George Carney.
“This partnership is the next step in the evolution of Raynham Park as we move toward the opening of our sportsbook, which will be one of the largest in the United States and set a new standard for destination gaming in Massachusetts.”
In addition to Massachusetts, bet365 is scheduled to begin operations in Ohio and Virginia. The operator is currently operational in New Jersey and Colorado.
A bet365 spokesperson said: “bet365 are thrilled to partner with Raynham Park ahead of launching in Massachusetts in 2023. With so many legendary sports franchises and dedicated fans based in the state, this was a natural fit for us as we continue our US expansion.
“We’re excited to work with the Carney family and look forward to delivering an unrivaled sports betting product to sports fans across the Bay State.”
