MGM Resorts International has launched an online casino that bears its name. The playMGM casino will offer real money gambling on casino and online poker games. It only operates to serve players in New Jersey.
The playMGM online casino will be operating under the Borgata online gambling license. This is because MGM had bought shares in the Borgata Hotel Casino in 2016 and expressed interest in becoming part of the online gambling market.
Features of the playMGM Online Casino
At the moment, the casino brand has only done a soft launch which has made the site available to New Jersey players from August 2017. Unlike the services that the brand offers in Nevada, playMGM will give players the option to play casino games and online poker.
Online casino gamblers can enjoy blackjack, roulette, video poker, craps, and slots games. They will have the option to choose from 200 titles from the slots selection.
The playMGM online casino will offer one of the most generous welcome bonus. Players who sign up will receive the following bonus package:
- No deposit bonus of $10 for playing poker
- $15 for tournaments
- 100% up to $2 000 first deposit bonus
GVC Holdings Software Provider
GVC has been the service provider for the Borgata brands. As a result, it was natural for the gambling brand to use their software on the playMGM sites. The playMGM poker website will be under the Borgata and PartyPoker network. The site will share players funds; however, it will have its promotions, look, and branding.
playMGM casino sites are also accessible on mobile apps that are compatible with Android and iOS. Furthermore, players can access the site from the desktop web browser. The online casino site features a loyalty program that has unique promotions, and it includes a chance to win a Las Vegas trip.
The Borgata casino brand is one that has been a leader in the market and MGM to use that as a way to penetrate the market is potential for success. They will make their presence felt and be able to compete with other brands such as PokerStars and the Golden Nugget online casino.
