For online gambling and sports betting enthusiasts in Pennsylvania, there is now one more operator to choose from. BetMGM which is the joint venture between MGM Resorts’ Roar Digital and GVC Holdings has finally made its long-awaited debut in the Keystone State giving customers in the state the chance to experience an exclusive range of slot and table games.
The online casino officially went live for full operations on December 4 after undergoing a three-day test phase that kicked off on December 1. As always, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) was responsible for overseeing the test phase and after ensuring that everything was up to standard, they gave the green light for a full launch.
Being the 13th online gambling option in Pennsylvania, BetMGM will certainly need to deal with a lot of competition. However, the company has a few tricks up its sleeves and it is already proving to be a force to reckon with. For instance, the site’s very robust library of table games and online slots has already made it very desirable among gamers in the Keystone State.
“With more than 140 different games, including our own in-house progressive jackpot network, we’re delivering the widest range of content currently available in the state. Alongside MGM Resorts and its M life Rewards program, BetMGM will provide players with a truly unique entertainment experience.”
Players in Pennsylvania will be able to enjoy all the action from their iOS or Android-powered mobile devices or on desktop. The app features an exclusive-to-Pennsylvania in-house jackpot with up to five jackpot games. To make it even better, new users are going to receive $25 in in-house money upon registration. Moreover, the operator also offers a 100 percent deposit match up to a whopping $1,000.
Sports Betting Coming Soon
The recent online casino launch further paves the way for the upcoming sports betting offering that BetMGM will bring to the Keystone State very soon. Already, the gaming operator has built the groundwork by inking a ton of lucrative partnerships with the most notable one being with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
This partnership with the Steelers is set to help both companies as they work towards increasing engagement and revenue. The main focus will be the Steelers Kickoff pre-game show, team broadcast programming, in-stadium signage, and a range of digital marketing assets on social media. Tapping into all that potential means a lot for BetMGM’s ambitious plans with regards to sports betting.
Thankfully, Pennsylvania remains to be one of the most lucrative and fastest-growing sports betting markets and this is something that the company can capitalize on. It already has more than what it takes to shake things up.
