About Us

We are BetMGM. We are revolutionizing sports betting and online gaming in the United States. We are a partnership between two powerhouse organizations—MGM Resorts International and Entain Group. You know our name through our exciting portfolio of brands including BetMGM Sportsbook, Borgata online, Party Casino and Party Poker. We aim to bring our ideas into action and find ways to deliver the best quality in gaming platforms.

We understand that each card in the deck plays a unique role in any given hand, just as our employees each play a unique role in accomplishing our goals as a company. We strive to create a culture of empathy where our employees feel valued, heard, and comfortable bringing their authentic selves to work. We want to build a product and a workplace that reflect the communities we serve so we approach our work fearlessly, take responsibility when we get it wrong, and ante-up again. We play to win, and we are all-in together.

We were recognized as one of Glassdoor’s “Best Places to Work”.
