Puerto Rico Requires in Person Sign up When Sports Betting Launches

The Puerto Rico sports betting market has been preparing to launch all year, and the hope was that it would be ready to go in time for the start of the MLB Regular Season.

This was not the case, and the wait continues, but the more news comes out, the sooner it feels an official launch date will be announced.

Puerto Rico sports betting was first legalized in 2019, by then Governor, Ricard Rossello but the bill is continually being amended, and it wasn't until November 2021, that Puerto Rico opened up request forms for sports betting and fantasy contents in the Puerto Rico sports betting market.

The most recent news though, is confirmation that in person registration will be required in the Puerto Rico sports betting market. This will include the BetMGM Sportsbook, which will launch its mobile sports betting product in Puerto Rico, thanks to its partnership with The Casino del mar.

The Puerto Rico Gaming Commission already awarded The Casino del mar a license back in February, meaning BetMGM will lead the way in the Puerto Rico online sports betting market when the time comes! With a physical sports betting location already in place at The Casino del mar, BetMGM clearly have the upper-hand when it comes to circling this market.

When Can we Expect In Person Registrations to Launch in Puerto Rico?

An official timeline on when we can expect the Puerto Rico sports betting market to launch is still unknown, and any details are a little hazy, but assuming the announcement of in person registrations was one of the bigger obstacles remaining, there should be some more solid information soon.

We can certainly expect the Puerto Rico sports betting market to launch or be very close by the time the NFL season comes around, an that will be a huge boost to the Puerto Rico economy.

Which sportsbooks can expect to follow BetMGM in the Puerto Rico sports betting market?

Which Sportsbooks are Likely to Join BetMGM in the Puerto Rico Sports Betting Market?

FanDuel

FanDuel recently signed a deal with The CAGE Companies, who operate and manage video gaming terminals, systems, and gaming content across South America and the Caribbean.

With this in mind, FanDuel Sportsbook will be hopeful, that through this partnership, it can add Puerto Rico to its list of live states, as soon as the Puerto Rico sports betting market launches.

DraftKings

To no one's surprise, with BetMGM Sportsbook already confirmed, and FanDuel looking to make its way in as well, DraftKings Sportsbook will look to complete 'the big three' in the Puerto Rico sports betting market.

On April 4, 2022, DraftKings announced that they have expanded their partnership with the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, which will allow them to enter the Puerto Rico sports betting market. DraftKings' retail sportsbook is expected to be based out of Foxwoods El San Juan Casino.

When live, users in the Puerto Rico sports betting market bettors will be able to take advantage of the host of sports betting markets available to sports betting users across the United States, courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook. DraftKings provide some of the best promo codes on the market, and Puerto Rico sports betting users have all that and more, to look forward to!
