Mohegan Sun Appoint Betfred USA Sports Sportsbook

Betfred USA Sports has been named by Virgin Hotels Las Vegas as the sportsbook operator for the Mohegan Sun Casino. Just a week after Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment (MGE) revealed the name and logo for its first destination in Las Vegas, the strategic alliance was announced

The Sportsbook will be part of the 60,000-square foot luxury gaming facility at Mohegan Sun Casino Las Vegas, located inside Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, part of Hilton’s Curio Collection.

Aviram Alroy, Vice President of Interactive Gaming at MGE said: “We’re excited to work with Betfred, one of the leading Sportsbook operators in the UK and Europe. Our affiliation will introduce new and attractive competition to the Las Vegas market. Betfred will create a seamless and best-in-class experience on our gaming floor, which will cater to both domestic and international visitors.”

Betfred USA Sports, based in Las Vegas, was directly founded by Betfred Group in 2019 for entry into the US sports betting industry. Within Mohegan Sun Casino Las Vegas, the Betfred Sports branded sportsbook will feature premium seats, a state-of-the-art video wall, and over-the-counter wagering, as well as self-service kiosks.

This partnership is the fourth US sportsbook for the group, following properties in Iowa, Colorado and Pennsylvania. Online betting products will accompany every location of the venue, including in Nevada.

Betfred Group’s Chief Operating Officer, Mark Stebbings said: “Given our collaboration with two outstanding operators in Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment and Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, we are confident that our first foray into the Las Vegas Sportsbook market will be a great success. Through our shared expertise, we will be offering a top class service for sports bettors in the entertainment capital of the world.”

The eight-month renovation of Mohegan Sun Casino Las Vegas is currently underway, and the re-imagined Las Vegas lifestyle casino resort is expected to open in fall 2020, subject to all regulatory approvals.
