Charlie Blackmon Sets Record with MaximBet Deal
Leading sports betting firm, MaximBet has reportedly signed a landmark sportsbook endorsement deal with Colorado Rockies star Charlie Blackmon.
Having played for the Colorado Rockies for 12 seasons as an outfielder, Blackmon is one of the most popular players in the state of Colorado. Although MLB laws prohibit him from referencing specific baseball bets or promoting gambling on football, he is permitted to participate in promotions and social media content.
Under the terms of his partnership with MaximBet, Blackmon will feature in upcoming marketing campaigns and fan events.
Although Blackmon is the first MLB to ink an endorsement deal with a sportsbook, many MLB teams like Chicago Cubs, Detroit Tigers, and Washington Nationals have their own partnerships with sportsbooks.
As I learned more about MaximBet, I knew this absolutely was the right brand for me. MaximBet has really attached itself to the local Colorado community, and I cannot wait to have some fun with MaximBet, and surprising fans with incredible ‘money can’t buy’ experiences all season.
MaximBet is a sports betting brand owned and operated by the Carousel Group. Licensed in Colorado, the operator seeks to expand in the Midwest and North America in general.
In January, MaximBet and Kambi Group announced a multi-year deal that saw the former integrate Kambi Group’s sportsbook platform into its technology stack.
