BetMGM, a major sports gambling and iGaming operator announced the release of its NHL-branded casino games, which include roulette, blackjack, baccarat, and the new live Money Wheel game, Dream Catcher. Since BetMGM Introduces NHL-Licensed Casino Games, gamblers in New Jersey, Ontario, Pennsylvania, and Michigan can access all games.
“The release of these one-of-a-kind games enhances our connection with the NHL,” said BetMGM’s Director of Gaming Oliver Bartlett. “As the season gets closer, we’re delighted that our players will be able to ‘drop the shot from the point with BetMGM.”
The games, created in collaboration with Evolution, showcase three-dimensional visualizations and animations that provide an immersive experience. Each game has its own ‘go live’ button. It takes players onto the ice and straight into BetMGM’s live dealer version of the exact game. Additionally, each game prominently features the NHL logo, with team logos cycling across the constructed arena.
NHL Roulette has realistic ball movements, complete, interactive outcomes, and statistics. The NHL Blackjack players will seat at a table within the arena skybox, able to move between seats virtually. NHL Baccarat provides players with an approach similar to a live casino game, complete with many of the same features. Finally, Dream Catcher allows players to wager on the number they believe the wheel will stop, increasing the suspense with various multipliers.
“We’re thrilled to expand our connection with BetMGM toward the improvement of NHL-branded casino games, especially when these new platforms enable us to widen the connection NHL fans have to our sport more engagingly and compellingly,” said Jason Jazayeri, NHL Vice President, Business Development.
“We look forward to partnering with BetMGM on other fan-centric efforts in the coming years.”
