BetMGM announced Wednesday it has launched its mobile app at MGM Resorts International’s Beau Rivage in Biloxi, becoming Coastal Mississippi’s first casino to offer on-premise mobile sports wagering. Bettors will now have two destinations to access the leading sports betting platform, joining Gold Strike in Tunica.
The BetMGM mobile app is available for download statewide and utilizes geolocation technology so that all guests onsite at Beau Rivage can place pre-game, live in-play, futures and parlay wagers from any mobile device. Guests at Beau Rivage no longer need to leave the pool, the spa, the roll at the craps table, or their Tomahawk Ribeye at BR Prime to place a wager.
Integration with MGM Resorts' M life Rewards program allows BetMGM users in Mississippi the opportunity to redeem their gameplay for experiences at MGM Resorts properties nationwide, including Beau Rivage and Gold Strike in Mississippi, as well as Bellagio and MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Borgata in New Jersey, and MGM National Harbor in Maryland.
In an official press release, MGM Southeast President and COO Travis Lunn spoke about this milestone and said: "Beau Rivage is proud to be the first Coastal Mississippi casino resort to offer mobile sports betting for customers. The BetMGM app not only offers in-game bets and expanded promotions, players can earn M life Rewards for playing."
BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt added: "We are thrilled at BetMGM to expand our business in Mississippi to now offer our mobile app at Beau Rivage. Beau Rivage is one of the great entertainment destinations of the region and a perfect place to bring our platform to new customers as we continue to expand throughout the South."
