American gambling company MGM Resorts has invested $500 million to modernize Yonkers Raceway located in Yonkers, New York. This horse racing venue was purchased by MGM Resorts for $850 million in 2019. In addition to the opportunity to follow the equestrian competitions, visitors can also play there at the Empire City Casino, which is also owned by MGM Resorts. Yonkers Raceway was first opened in 1899. After improvements made at the expense of the gambling company, the facility received visitors on June 9, 2021. My Lucky Story reported that sports betting operator BetMGM, a subsidiary of MGM Resorts, will launch a mobile betting app in the US capital. As reported, Bet MGM and the League of Professional Fighters (USA) have signed a partnership agreement. Recall that hockey legend Wayne Gretzky has become a BetMGM ambassador.
