BetMGM to Host Vegas-Style Event at Newcastle Racecourse
This weekend, BetMGM is hosting an event at the Newcastle Racecourse that aims to replicate the excitement of Vegas. The event will be open to prime ticket holders over the age of 18 who have the BetMGM app installed. There will also be opportunities to win tickets through BetMGM’s social media platforms.
The Lounge, located near the Horsewalk, will offer attendees refreshing treats, entertainment, and viewing opportunities. Live musicians, magic shows, casino games, and horse racing simulators will all be part of the experience. Players participating in casino games will have the chance to win a $126 STK voucher, and every attendee will receive a free BetMGM branded scarf.
Sam Behar, the UK Director of BetMGM, expressed excitement at the prospect of welcoming racing enthusiasts to the BetMGM lounge at the Fighting Fifth Hurdle. Attendees will be treated to a thrilling race card and Las Vegas-style entertainment, with a view of Constitutional Hill from the luxurious lounge.
The Fighting Fifth Hurdle, a high-standard two-mile hurdle race, has been held at the Newcastle Racecourse since 1969. It was established to honor the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers, a British Army infantry regiment. The race is the first stage in the Triple Crown of Hurdling and is currently sponsored by BetMGM. The company has had a long-standing association with Newcastle, having entered into a partnership with the Newcastle United Club at the beginning of 2023.
