Vegas Sports Betting Grows
Las Vegas is no stranger to sports betting as there are already several active regulated sportsbooks in Sin City. This Betfred launch is another major addition to the already stacked line ups of active Nevada sports betting operations.
The Mohegan Sun Casino is a 60,000 square foot venue known for its premium gaming options. With the sportsbook launch imminent, Mohegan Sun will become a go-to location for all Nevada gamblers needs.
“We’re excited to work with Betfred, one of the leading Sportsbook operators in the UK and Europe,” said Aviram Alroy, Vice President of Interactive Gaming at MGE. “Our affiliation will introduce new and attractive competition to the Las Vegas market. Betfred will create a seamless and best-in-class experience on our gaming floor, which will cater to both domestic and international visitors.”
Once launched, the sportsbook will have a luxurious sports lounge equipped with both over the counter sports betting as well as self-service kiosks. There will also be a state of the art video wall that displays odds and available betting lines.
Sports bettors will also be able to watch games and wager in real-time with several big screen TV’s on display.
This is the first Betfred sportsbook to launch in Las Vegas and the sports betting operator is pulling out all the stops to make the launch as successful as possible.
“Given our collaboration with two outstanding operators in Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment and Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, we are confident that our first foray into the Las Vegas Sportsbook market will be a great success,” said Mark Stebbings, Betfred Group’s Chief Operating Officer. “Through our shared expertise, we will be offering a top-class service for sports bettors in the entertainment capital of the world.”
The Silver State has had legal sports betting since even before the repeal of PASPA, making it the prime base for sportsbooks to launch.
Betfred is finally entering the fray in one of the biggest sports betting markets available.
