US – MGM National Harbor’s sports book to be ‘archetype’ for future MGM sports booksBy Phil - 4 October 2021
MGM Resorts International has unveiled the first renderings of its new sportsbook at MGM National Harbor Hotel & Casino near Washington D.C. for when sports betting is allowed.
The brand new BetMGM Sportsbook & Lounge has capacity for 350 people and is virtually complete, according to Washington Business Journal. It features a 110 foot-long wraparound video screen, recliner-to-stadium seating, a full bar, seven betting windows and 17 betting kiosks.
It serve as the ‘archetype’ for future MGM Resorts sports betting destinations. The 8,000 square-foot venue includes amenities such as a DJ booth and radio broadcast facilities.
The sportsbook sits on the casino floor next to National Market and can only be accessed from the gaming floor, and not from the resort’s food hall. Guests will access the space through a full bar built beneath a 360-degree halo screen projecting games in all directions, further reports the previously cited news source.
Seating sections, placed at various heights, will offer sports betting enthusiasts unobstructed views towards the wraparound screen. Customers can also order food and drink from National Market via mobile to have it delivered to their seats.
The new Sportsbook & Lounge isn’t the only space within National Harbor in which guests will be able to place bets. The TAP Sports Bar will get four kiosks and four betting windows, while the second level of the casino will get 10 kiosks and five betting windows. The main casino floor will get six kiosks.
