Baseball and betting. The Great American Pastime and the New American Pastime. BetMGM makes it easy to enjoy both in one simple spot.
Nationals Park in Washington D.C. now has a BetMGM Sportsbook. That means you can place your bets in the home of the 2019 World Series champs. It also means that you have another option outside of Gambet DC’s predatory lines.
BetMGM Sportsbook is the King of Sportsbooks and continues to expand across the country. While we cannot add Washington D.C. to the list of states, we can add it to the list of jurisdictions where BetMGM is legal.
You aren’t limited to betting in person at the retail sportsbook, however the BetMGM App only works within a two-block radius of the ballpark. Technically, we’ll call that mobile betting, but just keep in mind that you have to be very close to the ballpark in order to place a bet on your phone or via the website on your laptop.
While you have to be in close proximity of the ballpark to place a bet, you can actually sign up and deposit from anywhere. You just won’t have access to your real money balance unless geolocation technology pings your location within two blocks of the ballpark.
The addition of Washington D.C. now adds to BetMGM’s presence in neighboring Virginia, New Jersey, Indiana, West Virginia, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Iowa. Neighboring Maryland is also on the agenda for BetMGM once sports betting goes live in the state.
This is an exciting announcement and especially for baseball fans, who will be at the game and can live bet as it’s happening. You’ll have access to all of the BetMGM sports betting markets once you can use the app or while you place bets at the retail sportsbook at Nationals Park.
The Nats were recently the kings of MLB. You can bet with the King of Sportsbooks. It’s a win-win to go check out a game and also to sign up for BetMGM Sportsbook.
