BetMGM will be launching a new retail sportsbook in New Mexico.

BetMGM has announced the opening of its latest retail sportsbook at Isleta Resort & Casino in Albuquerque. This partnership will mark BetMGM's sports betting launch in New Mexico and is part of the company's current expansion efforts. 

The BetMGM Sportsbook at Isleta Resort & Casino is set to occupy 4,900 square feet (about the area of a basketball court) and will feature 35 television screens, alongside five betting windows and four betting kiosks. There will also be VIP sections available to guests. 

BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt said, "It's a privilege to enter New Mexico and collaborate with Isleta Resort & Casino. We're confident sports fans will enjoy the world-class gameday experience that only BetMGM provides." 

"Isleta Resort & Casino's goal is to constantly improve the consumer experience. Our new partnership with BetMGM makes unforgettable moments in sports even more personal, powerful, and fun,” added Karl Waitner, Isleta Resort & Casino CEO.  

Isleta Resort & Casino offers over 200 guest rooms alongside a multitude of amenities. The venue offers everything from golf, concerts, a spa and even the opportunity to host weddings alongside regular hotel booking and casino facilities.

The resort & casino is located not far from the town of Isleta, whose people and culture have resided in and around the area for over 3,000 years. The resort even offers a space for Native American artists to share their works, as a way to celebrate and preserve local history.  

The sportsbook is officially open for resort & casino guests to enjoy, with various facilities open all days of the week, including the Sportsbook kiosks, which are open daily 7am – 12am.
