BetMGM has finally launched its online gaming platform in Pennsylvania after a long wait from online gamblers. BetMGM conducted three days of testing before officially launching the online casino, and it is expected to become a huge player in the crowded market.
BetMGM is the 13th online casino to launch in Pennsylvania, one of just four states that currently offer online gambling. Other states are expected to launch iGaming in 2021, but for now, the market is extremely limited in the United States.
The site officially launched on Friday morning after the testing period started early in the morning on Tuesday. This testing period was required by the state of Pennsylvania before the site and mobile app could officially launch.
BetMGM is a part of MGM Resorts International, one of the biggest names in the casino industry in the United States. The name BetMGM should attract plenty of new customers, but the company is relying on an excellent option for players to be the reason why it becomes successful in the state.
What is Offered From BetMGM?
BetMGM will have a platform that offers more than 140 games, including the exclusive progressive slots only offered by BetMGM. This company has its own network of progressive slots, and all of that will be offered in Pennsylvania.
Another key feature of BetMGM will be the exclusive M Life Rewards Program that will be available to all players in Pennsylvania. This program will reward players for competing in tournaments and making bets at the online casino site.
BetMGM is also set to host a number of slot tournaments as well as several other table games. It will take the company time before it can unveil the entire category of games that will be available.
BetMGM Forming Partnerships
BetMGM is hoping to use several partnerships with professional sports teams to help become a huge player in the US sports betting industry. In late November, BetMGM announced that it had reached an agreement with the Pittsburgh Steelers to become the team’s official sports betting partner.
The company also has sports betting partnerships with five other NFL teams, and it will be looking to partner with other teams in the state of Pennsylvania. Along with the Steelers, BetMGM has partnered with the Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions, Las Vegas Raiders, New York Jets, and Tennessee Titans.
Pennsylvania a Huge Market
The state of Pennsylvania has quickly emerged as one of the biggest sports betting markets in the United States, and that trend is expected to continue moving forward. Along with sports betting, Pennsylvania is also a leader in the iGaming industry.
The sports betting handle for October 2020 surpassed the $500 million mark for the first time ever, which was the third-highest market in the United States. November is traditionally a big month for this industry, and Pennsylvania could be in line to set a new monthly record.
