DETROIT (September 27, 2022) - The BetMGM Sports Lounge at MGM Grand Detroit is set for another exciting season of football in 2022 with the opening of the Barry Sanders Booth, a unique game day viewing option filled with memorabilia signed by the Hall of Fame running back.

Fans who reserve the Barry Sanders Booth at the BetMGM Sports Lounge will receive the following perks on NFL Sundays:

  • Barry Sanders VIP Booth for 8 hours on Sunday
  • $500 food and beverage credit
  • Barry Sanders signed mini helmet
  • $100 BetMGM Online free wager

“We pride ourselves on providing our guests with unique offerings and are honored to have a legend like Barry Sanders as a part of this elevated experience,” said Carter Bair, Vice President of Marketing at MGM Grand Detroit. “This addition complements our other amenities and gaming offerings to make a memorable day out of watching the game.”

Barry Sanders is a former National Football League running back for the Detroit Lions and is known for being one of the best running backs in history. Having this space in Detroit makes it a great option for locals and visitors seeking a glimpse into his legacy. The space is one of several offerings enhancing the game experience at MGM Grand Detroit this fall.

Also debuting this season is Beat the Book, a promotion that gives fans the opportunity to win their share of a $15k property slot free play, by entering their NFL picks and selecting more winning teams than the Sportsbook. Winners will also be entered to receive BetMGM and MGM Grand Detroit gift cards, or the Grand Prize trip to Las Vegas for the Big Game weekend. This promotion will begin September 6, 2022 and run through January 10, 2023.

On Saturdays and Sundays, BetMGM Sports Lounge and TAP at MGM Grand Detroit will feature a live stadium-style DJ, game-changing giveaways for retail and online wagers, football tickets and more, plus weekly food and drink specials all season long during Take A Seat Live events. These events will take place on Saturdays September 3 through November 26, and on Sundays September 11 through January 8, 2023.

Located inside MGM Grand Detroit, the BetMGM Sports Lounge features over-the-counter betting, bar top video poker machines, wall-to-wall HDTV coverage of daily games, and a full bar with signature craft cocktails and local craft beers.
