MGM Resorts International is a Las Vegas-based global hospitality and entertainment giant, with casinos, hotels, and resorts around the world. In May 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court opened up legal sports betting for states outside of Nevada. By July, the company signed a $25 million contract with the NBA. In October, it became the official sports betting partner of the National Hockey League and the NFL's New York Jets, and a month later, the official gaming partner of Major League Baseball. As part of its deal with the NBA, the company will be integrating the NBA's official real-time data feed into its PlayMGM mobile sports betting app, allowing for in-game bets. The American sports leagues may have fought tooth and nail to keep sports betting illegal, but now that it isn't, MGM Resorts is one of the main players bringing it into the mainstream.
