Sports Betting On The Way

Sports betting in Massachusetts is expected to be very popular once the industry launches in the state. Many of the top sportsbooks in the country are expected to make their way to the Bay State in the coming months. Right now, the hope is that sports betting is rolled out in the state before the end of 2022.

MGM Springfield is preparing for sports betting action. The facility has two state-of-the-art lounges ready to welcome sports betting customers. The larger sports lounge closely resembles those in Las Vegas casinos. The design includes 70 theater-style seats and a huge wall of high-definition monitors for watching live sports. In addition, the lounge will have an island bar.

Located on the main casino floor, MGM Springfield’s TAP Sports Bar will also have a sports wagering area.
