MGM Resorts has unveiled a new US$7 million sportsbook at the Tunica-based Gold Strike Casino Resort.
US.- MGM Resorts International has expanded its operations in the US, this time by unveiling a new sportsbook at its Gold Strike Casino Resort in Tunica, Mississippi. The US$7 million Moneyline Book, Bar & Grill opened this week at the casino.
The Mississippi sportsbook from MGM features more than 60 HD screens including a giant video wall, expansive bar, three-meal dining, sportsbook, VIP lounge, lively entertainment, and the Mid-South’s first Topgolf Swing Suite, the company said.
Gold Strike, together with MGM sister property Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, made history last August when they simultaneously became the first Mississippi casinos to accept legal sports bets under the state’s new sports betting regulations.
“Last August, Gold Strike and MGM Resorts were the first to launch legalised sports betting in Mississippi, ushering in a new era of sports entertainment,” said Gold Strike President and COO David Tsai.
“Nearly a year later, we up the ante on the sports betting and sports entertainment experience in the Mid-South, with the opening of Moneyline Book, Bar & Grill and our own Topgolf Swing Suite. We’ve created an exceptional state-of-the-art venue that brings together sports, gaming, entertainment, dining and nightlife. These continued capital investments combined with our innovative service culture and M life Rewards loyalty program make Gold Strike the region’s premier sports entertainment destination.”
“Upon approaching Moneyline Book, Bar & Grill, guests see a long digital ticker tape highlighting all the current sports stats. Once in the venue, fans are greeted by two 16-foot wide by 9-foot tall video displays that can operate as 16 individual screens, in various combinations or as one large display. Underneath the viewing wall sits a 50-foot-long bar with 16 video poker machines. Sports fans can bet on their favourite teams at the adjacent Race & Sports Book and be seated in one of several tiered dining and seating areas, each offering prime sports viewing angles throughout the 6,000-square-foot space,” described MGM.
