Gambling.com Group Ready for Launch of Online Sports Betting in Kentucky with BetKentucky.com

Published

on

 

Gambling.com Group Limited (Nasdaq: GAMB), a leading provider of player acquisition services for the regulated global online gambling industry, today announced that it is ready to provide marketing services to licensed online sports betting operators in the state of Kentucky as legal online sports betting goes live on Thursday, September 28, 2023.

The group launched BetKentucky .com in April of 2022 ahead of the legal online sports betting market in Kentucky going live to help sports bettors find trusted, comprehensive and up-to-date information on sports betting and legislative updates in ‘The Bluegrass State’. With seven approved online sportsbook operators available on day one and one more expected at a later date, access to comparison websites like BetKentucky .com enables consumers to read expert reviews of all legal sportsbooks in the state to help them choose their best option.

Through its portfolio of informational websites, Gambling.com Group helps operators acquire players, reducing their reliance on more intrusive forms of advertising. In addition to BetKentucky .com, the group is ready to help licensed online gambling operators in Kentucky with its national and international websites including Gambling .com, Bookies .com, RotoWire .com and USAToday .com through its media partnership with Gannett Co. Inc as well as with the Lexington Herald-Leader (at Kentucky .com) via its media partnership with The McClatchy Company and the Louisville Courier Journal (at Courier-Journal .com) via its media partnership with Gannett.

Kentucky with a population of over three million adults, launched retail sports betting in the state on September 7 with Governor Andy Beshear announcing bricks-and-mortar sportsbooks posted a handle of over $4.5 million after the first two weekends. BetKentucky .com in late-July commissioned a survey reporting that 42% of Kentucky adults say they are ‘very likely’ or ‘likely’ to bet on sports once it is legalized. Kentucky has a strong college sporting history with college teams at the University of Kentucky, University of Louisville and others receiving undivided attention from fans across the state.

“Kentucky has been one of the quickest states to launch sports betting after legislative approval and ‘The Bluegrass State’ is taking the right approach by keeping the barriers to entry low and allowing a variety of operators to enter the market,” the Chief Executive Officer for Gambling.com Group Limited, Charles Gillespie, said. “We believe that this will foster competition and ultimately benefit consumers as the operators with the best products rise to the top. Kentucky has a rich sporting tradition and Gambling.com Group Limited is excited to help guide and educate sports bettors in the state to get the most out of their online sports betting experience.”

“Kentucky allowing sportsbooks to take legal sports bets just as the NFL season is kicking off and with the MLB post-season on the horizon is a huge win for sports bettors in the state,” the Vice-President for Gambling.com Group Limited, Caroline Smart, said. “The competitive marketplace in Kentucky will guarantee plenty of choices and opportunities for customers, who can count on our dedicated websites that feature trusted, comprehensive and up-to-date information on sports betting as well as reviews of the legal sportsbooks to provide them all of the resources needed to navigate these exciting times.”

MGM Resorts Named a Proud Partner of the New York Yankees

MGM Resorts International announced a new partnership designating MGM Resorts as a “Proud Partner of the New York Yankees”.

The two organizations will collaborate to deliver exclusive VIP experiences to MGM Rewards members and baseball fans, including the opportunity to watch batting practice from the warning track and throw out a ceremonial first pitch at Yankee Stadium. MGM Resorts will also have brand placement at Yankee Stadium on LED signage, first and third base rotational signage, and its logo appearing on the back of the pitcher’s mound during live local television broadcasts of select games.

“We remain committed to investing in the community, while collaborating with the New York Yankees to provide unparalleled experiences for baseball fans. Our company has owned and operated Empire City Casino and Yonkers Raceway for the past five years. As we continue working to secure a full commercial casino license at Empire City, this partnership allows us to further develop these properties to their potential, while providing the world-class hospitality guests have come to expect from the MGM Resorts brand,” Bill Hornbuckle, CEO & President of MGM Resorts, said.

“We are excited to partner with MGM Resorts this season. Through branding displayed on signage inside Yankee Stadium and integrated into our television broadcasts, the MGM Resorts brand will only see increased exposure and recognition for its resort and casino properties— especially for the nearby Empire City Casino,” Michael Tusiani, SVP of Partnerships at New York Yankees, said.

As this partnership moves forward, MGM Resorts’ Empire City Casino plans to host New York Yankees-themed fan activities and experiences involving active Major League Baseball players, as well as alumni.

Ed Domingo, President and COO of MGM Resorts’ Empire City Casino, said: “This alliance with the Yankees allows us to create unique and engaging opportunities for guests and baseball fans alike. Empire City sits less than two miles from the Bronx border and is not only the gaming entertainment destination of choice for Bronxites, but also the longtime employer of hundreds of team members who call the Bronx home. We are well positioned to significantly increase that number when a full-scale commercial casino license is secured.”

In November 2018, MGM Resorts and Major League Baseball formed a wide-ranging and groundbreaking partnership in the US and Japan, designating MGM Resorts as the first “Official Gaming Partner of MLB” and “Official Entertainment Partner of MLB”. Additionally, MGM Resorts has been an “Official Partner of MLB Players Inc” since 2022.
