Sports betting is officially live in Puerto Rico at Casino del Mar at La Concha Resort. BetMGM, a leading sports betting and iGaming company, announced the launch of the island's first regulated sports betting platform.
In time for Sunday's Big Game, BetMGM now is accepting wagers at the San Juan-based beach resort through 12 kiosks and five betting windows. A full-scale BetMGM retail sportsbook is set to open at La Concha Resort later this year.
BetMGM plans to launch its mobile betting app in Puerto Rico in the months ahead as well.
"This is a monumental day for BetMGM as it marks the launch of our first operation outside of the U.S. mainland," said BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt.
"Casino del Mar delivers exceptional guest experiences and is an ideal partner as we look to extend our brand in Puerto Rico."
Sigfrido de Jesús, Casino del Mar's General Manager, said, "We are very excited to kick off sports betting at Casino del Mar through this important strategic alliance with BetMGM. In Puerto Rico, there is a wide base of sports fans who will now add the possibility of becoming winners to the excitement of their favorite sports games and matches."
