Beau Rivage launches first sports betting app on the Coast
Today, Beau Rivage Resort and Casino officially launched their mobile sports betting app making them the first casino on the Coast to have this app.
Placing sports bets here in Mississippi is now at your fingertips. Guests onsite at Beau Rivage can now place pre-game, live in-play, futures, and parlay wagers from any mobile device.
This is the first casino on the Coast to offer on-premise mobile sports wagering. Beau Rivage Sportsbook Manager Carl Johnson said, “Who would have thought that you would be able to have a sportsbook right in the palm of your hands. So, we are proud of it.”
To start placing your bets all you have to do is go to your app store and download the app that says Bet MGM Sportsbook. Once the app is downloaded, it will say ‘welcome to Bet MGM’ click ‘get started.’ This way you don’t even have to leave any area of the property. Beau Rivage VP General and Legal Counsel Anthony Delvescovo said, “So you could place wagers from the pool. You can place wagers from the craps table. If you are at dinner with your family or at the bar, so it allows guests a lot more opportunities to place wagering.”
The Bet MGM app works a lot like the kiosk machines, but it offers in-game bets and expanded promotions. You must be at the Beau Rivage property to use the app. “So, the app is really easy. They have made it real user friendly. You will basically just be following the drop box. When you go to sign up on the app, it will ask for your name, address. You are going to have to input your social security number, your email address, stuff like that. It’s very simple.”
Mississippi launched legal sports betting in August 2018. In Mississippi, sports betting is available to those 21 and older. “The product is just going to keep getting better and better.”
