Sports betting and iGaming experiences are set to launch on over 50 ships docked in the US.

A new partnership has been announced between BetMGM and Carnival Corporation. The purpose of the agreement is to bring gaming to over fifty ships ported in the US. 

These cruise lines include the Carnival Cruise Line, Holland America Line, and Princess Cruises. Each of the ships involved with these lines will provide guests with sports betting and iGaming experiences courtesy of BetMGM. 

The BetMGM platform will roll out to each ship over the course of the next few months. 

BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt, said: "We've found an ideal partner in Carnival Corporation and look forward to providing our sports betting and iGaming products to its millions of passengers."

Greenblatt added: "This is another great opportunity for us to further expand BetMGM's footprint."

The details of the agreement state that Carnival Corporation will offer BetMGM-branded digital and cash-based sports betting. Along with that Carnival Corporation will offer digital real-money gaming products on board Carnival's US-branded ships in international waters.

Both companies will work together on co-marketing and promotional activations.

SVP Global Casino Operations for Carnival Corporation, Marty Goldman, 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."

Goldman continued: "Our two leading global hospitality organizations will provide a wide array of immersive digital content as a complement to our exceptional shipboard casinos."

BetMGM also has added GameSense to its platform, a responsible gaming tool. Not long ago the company entered into a partnership with PokerGO to host and stream the BetMGM Poker Championship Final Table.

Earlier in June, Greentube also expanded its US presence by launching in New Jersey with BetMGM.
