Where else can you bet on hockey in the USA?
In the spring of 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a 1992 federal law that had prohibited most states from authorizing sports betting. This opened the door to legalized sports gambling across the 50 states, and it’s also enabled the world’s leading sportsbooks to move operations into the USA.
If you are someone who likes to bet on the NHL, this was indeed good news for you. It’s not only made it easier to place a wager on an NHL game, it’s provided you the opportunity to do it right in your own backyard and through some of the biggest and most trusted names in the sports betting industry.
You can play at Ocean Sports, a book operated by the legends from William Hill. Many of the top Las Vegas sportsbooks like Caesars Sport, the Tropicana and the Golden Nugget are branching out across the country.
Two new players to the industry, FanDuel and DraftKings, who pioneered daily fantasy sports gaming, were quick to move into the sportsbook industry when the opportunity knocked. FanDuel teamed up with Irish powerhouse Paddy Power Betfair to set up their sportsbook empire.
DraftKings partnered with Resorts Atlantic City to open its sportsbook operation.
But when it comes to betting on the NHL, PlayMGM just might be your best bet. PlayMGM went right to the source when it comes to NHL betting, signing a multiyear deal with the league to earn the designation as the official betting partner and resort destination of the NHL.
As part of the deal, MGM will be provided with access to NHL intellectual property, including all trademarks, for marketing and promotion. MGM also will have access to real-time advanced game data that’s currently in the development phase by the league. But there is no exclusivity agreement, meaning that the NHL could sign deals with other sportsbooks in order to share the same information.
Legal sports betting in the United States figures to be a boon for all sports, the NHL included. In October 2018, the American Gaming Association issued a report that indicated the organization anticipated that legalized sports betting could result in a $216 million uptick in the NHL’s annual revenue. During the 2017-18 season, NHL revenues were in excess of $4.5 billion.
