The joint venture between MGM Resorts International and Entain has launched another online casino platform in Pennsylvania.
BetMGM, the joint venture between MGM Resorts International and Entain, has launched its mobile Borgata Casino app in the state of Pennsylvania.
This marks the launch of BetMGM’s second online casino product in the Keystone State. The online operator launched its first online casino, BetMGM Casino in December 2020.
BetMGM’s Borgata Casino
BetMGM launched its second online casino in Pennsylvania earlier this week under a market access agreement through a market access partnership with Rivers Casino Philadelphia.
Borgata Casino features more than 150 slots and table games, and players can access content such as Premium Blackjack Pro and MGM Grand Millions.
Players will also benefit from the integration of BetMGM’s M life Rewards program which will allow Borgata customers in the Keystone State to redeem points for rewards at MGM’s land-based properties in the US.
BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt said: “There are few casino brands as well-respected as Borgata, evident by the success we’ve seen with the Borgata Casino app in New Jersey. Pennsylvania marks an important milestone for us as we introduce the Borgata Casino brand to the first state outside of New Jersey. We’re confident that players in Pennsylvania will enjoy the digital betting experience of Atlantic City’s premier casino.”
Online casino in Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania’s online casino market went live in July 2019 with just three online casino brands. The next wave of online casinos, Unibet and PokerStars launched in November and since then several other online casinos have slowly launched in the state.
The online casino market in Pennsylvania has now exploded and the Keystone State is now home to 12 other online casino brands including FanDuel, DraftKings, Parx and BetRivers.
According to the latest figures from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, the state’s online casino gambling generated a record $71.6m in Revenue in January 2021.
This marked a significant increase on the previous record of $71.6m set in December 2020 and a 476.1% year-on-year revenue increase.
Online slots made up the majority of revenue, with the vertical generating a total of $51m in revenue. Online table games revenue amounted to $26.7m while online poker generated $2.7m in revenue.
Penn National Gaming, which hosts the DraftKings online casino and its own Penn-branded casino, dominated the market after generating $27.6m from online casino gambling.
