The self-proclaimed king of online sportsbooks, BetMGM, seeks to expand its retail presence as well and launched a land-based shop in Washington DC. The venue is connected with the Nationals Park Major League Baseball stadium – a convenient location for all passionate sports bettors.
BetMGM Launches a New Sports Betting Venue
BetMGM expects the strategic location to play a huge role in the success of the retail sportsbook as it will provide local punters with an easily-accessible place to sit down, watch games, and place bets.
The 4,000 square feet state-of-the-art venue will be able to accommodate 187 people at once. It is equipped with 40 big high-quality TV screens where fans of sports betting can closely follow the latest sports developments, results, and odds. There will be a total of six cashier desks in order to avoid the forming of long queues and allow everyone to place their bets on time.
Furthermore, BetMGM’s new venue will provide visitors with a plethora of drinks and food so that they can enjoy themselves while following their favorite sports events on one of the screens.
Half a year before the launch of BetMGM Sportsbook at Nationals Park, BetMGM launched a Washington DC app that allows local fans to bet through their phones while in the vicinity of the Nationals Park stadium.
BetMGM Places Fan Experience on Top of Its Priorities
Adam Greenblatt, the chief executive officer of BetMGM, spoke about the new venue and what it means to the fans. According to him, BetMGM’s Sportsbook at Nationals Park is the latest testament to BetMGM’s mission of delivering unparalleled experiences to the fans of sports betting.
Greenblatt explained that the location is tailored to the needs of all kinds of sports bettors and will be an exciting place for anyone looking to engage with the world of professional sports.
“Whether fans are attending baseball games or looking for a place to watch any sporting event, the BetMGM Sportsbook at Nationals Park is bound to be one of the most engaging sports viewing environments in the District.”

Alan Gottlieb, the chief operating officer of Lerner Sports Group, is confident that the new venue will immediately become the to-go retail sportsbook for sports betting casuals and enthusiasts alike. He said:
“Upon its opening, the sportsbook immediately becomes one of the neighborhood’s premier venues for both the savvy bettor and casual fan to watch the top events in an upscale and electric atmosphere.”

BetMGM has been expanding its reach but still meets some setbacks along the way. It was recently announced that the company’s projected growth for 2022 will still be insufficient for profit.
