Carnival Partners with BetMGM to Offer Cruise Ship Gaming
BetMGM has announced a new partnership with Carnival Corporation to deliver sports betting and iGaming experiences to cruise ship guests. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Through this partnership, gaming will be available on more than 50 ships ported in the U.S. spanning Carnival Cruise Line, Holland America Line and Princess Cruises. BetMGM’s platform will roll out in phases over the coming months.
Under the agreement, Carnival will offer BetMGM-branded digital and cash-based sports betting, as well as digital real-money gaming products on-board Carnival’s U.S.-branded ships in international waters. Because gambling will occur in international waters during cruises, the two companies don’t need to seek regulatory approvals to proceed.
Marty Goldman, SVP Global Casino Operations for Carnival Corporation, said, “We’re very proud to be able to deliver the excitement and engagement of sports betting and iGaming to our guests through our partnership with BetMGM. Our two leading global hospitality organizations will provide a wide array of immersive digital content as a complement to our exceptional shipboard casinos.”
The BetMGM app is available for download on both iOS and Android, and is accessible via desktop at www.betmgm.com.
