- The MLB has partnered with Bally’s Corporation in a multi-year deal
- Bally’s now has access to official league and team data.
PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The MLB has added yet another sports betting entity to its family by officially partnering with Bally’s Corporation. This multi-year deal will see Bally’s gain access to official league and team data, team marks, and logos. This is a strategic partnership.
This MLB will see its games promoted across Bally’s products and Bally’s will be declared as authorized gaming operator of the MLB.
Bally’s partnering with the MLB comes two weeks before MLB betting officially kicks off, giving ample time for Bally’s to incorporate the official league data within its sportsbook.
This is the third betting agreement the sports betting operator has curated, with NHL betting and NBA betting partnerships already in full swing.
Bally’s now has immediate access to the official team marks, logos, and data and will incorporate these to make the best MLB betting experience for patrons.
There are also plans to create new content specifically for MLB fans with the goal of increasing fan engagement with innovative ways to play.
“The agreement between Bally’s and MLB offers exciting benefits for baseball fans nationwide,” said George Papanier, President and Chief Executive Officer of Bally’s Corporation. “We are honored to have the opportunity to put the Bally’s stamp on America’s national pastime and look forward to providing an innovative and engaging sports betting experience. We can’t wait for the season to begin.”
MLB betting fans will also note that Bally’s and the MLB are working to protect the integrity of MLB games with best-in-class practices. All wagers will be fair and players can wager knowing the outcome was determined on the field.
“As we prepare for the start of the 2021 season, working with Bally’s will present our fans with yet another unique avenue to engage with baseball,” said Kenny Gersh, MLB Executive Vice President, Gaming & New Business Ventures. “Bally’s knows how to provide added entertainment for sports fans across the country, so we look forward to collaborating on new ways of engaging fans around our games.”
This deal further cements Bally’s Corporation as a major player in the legal sports betting arena. With the 2021 MLB season kicking off on April 1, fans won’t be waiting long before they can reap the benefits of this partnership.
