The King of Sportsbooks Introduces Most Expansive Home Run Markets in the Industry and Grand Slam Jackpot Contest

JERSEY CITY, NJ (May 14, 2024) – BetMGM, a leading sports betting and iGaming operator, is knocking it out of the park this baseball season offering the most expansive home run markets in the industry, an enhanced parlay experience and a brand-new Grand Slam Jackpot contest.

The new integration of enhanced data analytics from Angstrom has fueled the evolution of the BetMGM app into a best-in-class product, giving our fans more ways than ever to be a part of the most exciting moments in baseball. In the first month, we’ve seen a 209% increase in home run bets placed compared to the same period in 2023. We’re setting the stage for the biggest baseball season for BetMGM to date.

  • Industry-leading home run markets: Through sports pricing and analytics company Angstrom’s newly integrated algorithms, BetMGM is able to provide the most extensive markets for home runs in the sports betting industry. Customers can select from a full field of play on the long ball, including the player to hit the first home run of the game, the longest home run of the day, and whether there will be a grand slam. To make their home run markets even more enticing, BetMGM is offering the best prices in the industry for home run prop bets.
  • New parlay and live betting experiences: The integration of Angstrom greatly enhanced the depth and breadth of BetMGM’s baseball offering, including improved same-game parlay (SGP) and SGP+ capabilities, new at-bat live betting experiences, and better responsiveness for customers. SGPs for baseball can now be built two ways – via a dedicated SGP tab or by visiting an event page and adding selections to the bet slip, where SGPs are calculated on the spot.
  • BetMGM $50,000 Grand Slam Jackpot: Every Friday through Sunday, customers who place a $10+ prop wager on a player to hit a home run in a select game are automatically entered into the Grand Slam Jackpot contest. If the player hits a grand slam in that game, the customer will win a share of a $50,000 bonus bet prize pool. The promotion has already yielded exceptional results, with customers cashing out on the 23 grand slams hit during the promotional period so far, totaling over $500,000 in bonus bets awarded. Contest not available in Nevada or Puerto Rico. Bonus bets are non-withdrawable and expire in seven days
