- Earlier this year the deal was made between MGM Resorts and Allegiant Stadium.
- NFL permitting betting lounges laid the groundwork for the stadium sportsbook.

LAS VEGAS – The first NFL franchise in Las Vegas will now be playing in the first NFL stadium to provide fans with a sportsbooks lounge.
The $1.84 billion new home for the Las Vegas Raiders will include a unique brick-and-mortar sports betting experience that no other NFL stadium has ever offered.
The MGM club at Allegiant Stadium will feature a luxury lounge, full-service premium bar, and top-notch stadium seating to watch the game.
On January 23, MGM Resorts was named the Official Gaming Partner of the Raiders which gave the rights to exclusive fan experience for pre- and post-game parties.
“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with the Raiders and to welcome professional football to Las Vegas,” said Jim Murren, MGM Resorts Chairman and CEO. “Las Vegas is becoming one of the top sports destinations in the world, and this partnership is a natural fit of culture and vision. Together, we look forward to creating unique and world-class entertainment experiences for our guests and Raiders fans.”
The NFL announced that stadiums will be allowed to have betting lounges and can receive sponsorships from sportsbook operators in states that allow legal sports betting on Feb 21.
With Las Vegas being famous for its plethora of gambling options around the city, it was only right to have the first NFL betting lounge be built there. Betting windows inside stadiums are still not allowed in any NFL stadium.
If there are no hiccups at the start of the NFL season, the first home game in the new stadium will be on Monday, September 21 but of course, there will be no fans in attendance.
