Raiders make BetMGM their official betting partner

By Stephen Nakrosis

BetMGM and the Las Vegas Raiders on Thursday said the sports betting and gaming platform was named an official sports betting partner of the NFL franchise.

The deal is an extension of an existing multi-year partnership between MGM Resorts and the Raiders.

The deal will see BetMGM provide educational information about the BetMGM app to Raiders fans, and fans in Nevada can register for the BetMGM app by visiting any MGM Resorts Sports Book in Las Vegas, the companies said.

BetMGM is a sports betting and gaming platform by BetMGM LLC, which is a joint venture between MGM Resorts International and GVC Holdings PLC.
