MGM Resorts introduces real-money online gambling in New Jersey
4 Aug 2017
"We are thrilled to be entering the online gaming landscape in New Jersey with the expansion of our playMGM platform to include both casino and poker games," said Corey Sanders, Chief Operating Officer of MGM Resorts International. "The ability to effectively bring Las Vegas to New Jersey via an online experience is an exciting undertaking, especially as we continue to develop our presence on the East Coast with the recent acquisition of Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa, the opening of MGM National Harbor and the pending 2018 opening of MGM Springfield in Massachusetts."
MGM Resorts, in partnership with GVC Holdings, will present players with two distinct online gaming options; playMGMcasino, which will boast more than 200 online slots and table games such as blackjack, roulette, craps and video poker; and playMGMpoker, offering lucrative daily and weekly tournament guarantees, along with a variety of sit-and-go tournaments and cash games. As an extra incentive for new customers, playMGM will offer a welcome package to anyone who signs up for a new account and becomes a verified player.
PlayMGMcasino participants will receive $25 freeplay and 100% deposit match up to $2,000 freeplay (20x wagering requirement), while playMGMpoker participants will receive a $25 bonus ($10 Online Cash and $15 Online Tournament Dollars) upon sign up, along with a deposit match of 100% on up to $2,000 in restricted cash.
Both playMGMcasino and playMGMpoker will compliment Borgata's platform and sit on the GVC technology stack, offering desktop as well as mobile gaming applications (apps) available for download on iOS and Android devices.
