Roar Digital to enter Oregon through tribal partnership


Roar Digital, the joint venture between MGM Resorts International and GVC Holdings, has entered into a sports betting partnership with the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde in Oregon.

Under the long-term agreement, Road Digital will serve as the exclusive sports betting partner to the tribe, and will open a BetMGM retail sportsbook at its Spirit Mountain Casino.

In addition, should regulations pass, Roar Digital would have the option to roll out an on-reservation mobile sports betting app, as well as a state-wide online sports wagering offering.

“We have found a great partner in the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde and Spirit Mountain Casino and look forward to working with the Tribe to bring a leading retail and online sports betting experience to Oregon,” Roar Digital’s chief executive Adam Greenblatt said.

Spirit Mountain Casino general manager Stan Dillon added: “This joint venture between two of the gaming industry’s most recognisable brands will bring a world class sports betting offering to Oregon.

“We’re excited to launch this partnership with BetMGM, which will allow us to extend our established position as the Northwest’s premier entertainment destination.”

The Oregon launch will build on Roar Digital’s presence in the US sports betting market, with the joint venture also operating 13 BetMGM sportsbooks across Nevada, Mississippi, Michigan and New Jersey, as well as a mobile sports betting app.

Roar Digital’s BetMGM is also active in Colorado – which opened its regulated sports betting market in May – where it operates via a partnership with Tripe Crown Casinos’ Midnight Rose property.
