MGM venture signs sports betting deal in California10/10/2018 – Update
After the US Supreme Court overturned the act that prevents states from offering sports betting, MGM-GVC Interactive partnered with the United Auburn Indian Community (UAIC), to allow the UAIC to offer sports betting, and online casino and poker using MGM-GVC’s services if permitted by Californian laws.
UAIC represents the ideal partner for MGM-GVC in California since it allows access to the largest US state by population. Chairman of UAIC, Gene Whitehouse, said that it’s not clear if Caklifornia will allow sports betting yet. “Our Tribe wants to be well-situated, and this agreement with the national leader in the field does just that.” Whitehouse added.
