BetMGM announced a partnership with NYRA Bets, LLC (NYRA Bets), the official online wagering platform of the New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) and a leading provider of horse racing content in the United States. NYRA Bets will become BetMGM’s first horse racing partner, allowing customers to watch and wager on premier Thoroughbred, Harness, and Quarter Horse races at more than 200 tracks around the world.
Launched as a national online wagering platform in 2016, NYRA Bets achieved rapid growth last year as new customers gravitated toward horse racing, one of the few sports able to operate during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. NYRA Bets features a secure, state-of-the-art wagering platform that allows its customers to conveniently and securely watch and wager from home. NYRA Bets is available in 30 states and continues to expand its reach and customer base throughout the country.
BetMGM will utilize the NYRA Bets wagering platform in its Horse Racing app for Apple and Android devices as well as on desktop. Customers will have access to daily horse racing content, live streaming video and race replays and can also wager on marquee events in the United States like the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, Belmont Stakes and the Breeders’ Cup, as well as international events such as the Royal Ascot meet, Melbourne Cup, Saudi Cup and the Dubai World Cup.
