MGM Resorts International’s Beachfront Resort Becomes Coastal Mississippi’s First Casino to Offer On-Premise Mobile Sports Wagering

10 November 2021

BILOXI, Miss. – BetMGM, a leading sports betting and digital gaming operator, announced today the launch of its mobile app at MGM Resorts International’s Beau Rivage in Biloxi. Sports fans in Mississippi 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 now 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 get in on the action.

“Beau Rivage is proud to be the first Coastal Mississippi casino resort to offer mobile sports betting for customers,” said MGM Southeast President and COO Travis Lunn. “The BetMGM app not only offers in-game bets and expanded promotions, players can earn M life Rewards for playing.”

Integration with MGM Resorts’ M life Rewards program allows BetMGM users in Mississippi the opportunity to redeem their gameplay for world-class 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.

“We are thrilled at BetMGM to expand our business in Mississippi to now offer our mobile app at Beau Rivage,” said BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt. “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.”

As BetMGM continues to expand its platforms to new states, responsible gaming education remains a key focus. BetMGM is proud to provide resources to help customers play responsibly. The BetMGM app is available for download in Mississippi on both iOS and Android, and accessible via desktop at www.betmgm.com. For more information, follow @BetMGM on Twitter.
