One day before billionaire Elon Musk, one of the world’s richest people, was reportedly expected to be gambling in Las Vegas, BetMGM announced that it had formed a sports betting partnership with X, the social media platform owned by Musk.

Under the partnership, BetMGM, a 50-50 joint venture between MGM Resorts International and Entain, will serve as the platform’s exclusive odds provider.

BetMGM said its agreement with X — formerly Twitter, until it was rebranded by Musk last July — was the first of its kind between a social media platform and a sports operator.

“X is the center of the sports world’s conversation 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt said in a statement Friday.

“Being directly accessible within that forum is an unprecedented opportunity to expand our reach to a passionate and engaged audience. We look forward to adding intel and content that enhances the platform’s interaction around sports.”
