Customers can redeem their playtime for experiences at MGM Resorts facilities, including Empire City Casino in Yonkers, Borgata in New Jersey, MGM National Harbor in Maryland, and Bellagio and MGM Grand in Las Vegas. BetMGM will also reward its customers with VIP experiences, including the New York Knicks and Rangers as an official sports betting partner of Madison Square Garden Arena.

The New York State Gaming Commission cleared four mobile sports wagering companies this week, including Caesars, DraftKings, FanDuel, and Rush Street Interactive, to begin sports wagering operations on Saturday, January 8, at no early than 9 a.m.

The remaining five licensees, including Bally’s, Wynn, Resorts World, PointsBet, and BetMGM, will continue to meet the essential statutory and regulatory standards for launch and will be approved on a rolling basis as they are satisfied.
