Jalen Rose joins BetMGM as celebrity brand ambassador

15 March 2021

(PRESS RELEASE) -- BetMGM announced today the signing of Jalen Rose as a celebrity brand ambassador. The Michigan basketball legend and award-winning analyst will be featured in BetMGM's upcoming marketing campaigns and participate in a variety of BetMGM fan events.

"The excitement around sports and the growth of sports betting, and BetMGM in particular, this year has been special to witness," said Rose. "I'm beyond excited to go from a spectator to a player joining the BetMGM team, continuing to defy industry expectations."

BetMGM's January launch of mobile sports betting and iGaming set records in Michigan, where Rose captivated the nation as part of "The Fab Five," one of college basketball's most famous teams. Rose enjoyed a 13-year career in the NBA before becoming a renowned multi-media personality where he is known throughout the industry as one of the hardest-working analysts and columnists.

Rose will engage with BetMGM customers and MGM Resorts' M life Rewards loyalty members, both virtually and in-person. He also will appear in BetMGM social media content and make guest appearances on radio and television programs nationwide.

Matt Prevost, Chief Revenue Officer, BetMGM, said, "Jalen Rose is an All-Star addition to the BetMGM team. The impact he has had on the game of basketball is surpassed only by the exceptional analysis he provides fans daily. We anticipate a great relationship and look forward to the initiatives we'll pursue together."

As BetMGM continues to expand into new states, responsible gaming education remains a key focus. BetMGM is proud to provide resources to help customers play responsibly.
