Hard Rock International to launch mobile sports betting in Virginia

Hard Rock International has announced that it will expand the reach of its sportsbook to Virginia, launching its mobile product and opening a retail facility at its new casino in the state.

The operator’s ‘Hard Rock Digital’ arm has launched a mobile sports betting portfolio in Virginia, with players in the state able to place bets on a range of events.

Virginia becomes the second US state where Hard Rock has released its updated mobile sports betting app, following an initial launch in Arizona last month through a partnership with Navajo Nation Gaming Enterprise.

The latest version of the sports betting app allows users to bet live on a wider range of sports, offers the option of same-game betting, includes a selection of new reward features and has additional deposit methods.

“We’re excited to expand Hard Rock’s sportsbook to Virginia and are proud to offer more gaming options about the sport residents in the region love on our easy-to-use mobile platform,” said Marlon Goldstein, Chief Executive and Director. executive at Hard Rock Digital.

In addition to the app, a retail sports betting facility will be installed at the new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Bristol, home to the land-based casino.

Scheduled to open in July of this year and expected to create more than 600 new jobs, the Hard Rock Bristol casino will be the first land-based casino to open in Virginia, after the Virginia Lottery Board granted an operator license last month.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Bristol President Allie Evangelista added: “We can’t wait to welcome sports fans from across the region to our sports betting shop in Bristol. Hard Rock’s mobile betting app will be an extension of our Bristol property, allowing sports fans to continue their legendary entertainment experience across the state.”
