Sports betting and iGaming operator BetMGM has launched casino games from its National Hockey League (NHL) brand. Players in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan and the Canadian province of Ontario can access the NHL-themed roulette, blackjack and baccarat games, as well as the new live Money Wheel game, Dream Catcher.
The launch follows the recent partnership between BetMGM and the NHL. The league began collaborating with both BetMGM and FanDuel after Ontario opened its commercial market this spring.
NHL VP of Business Development Jason Jazayeri said: "We're excited to broaden our relationship with BetMGM through the development of NHL-branded casino games, particularly when these new platforms allow us to deepen the connection NHL fans have to our sport in a more immersive and compelling way.
“We look forward to collaborating with BetMGM on other fan-centric efforts in years to come."
BetMGM, along with its parent company MGM Resorts, has recently joined the American Gaming Association and became an official partner of its “Have A Game Plan. Bet Responsibly” campaign. Through its social media platforms, the company will offer players tips and educational resources regarding responsible gambling during September’s Responsible Gaming Education Month.
Responsible gaming education remains a key focus as BetMGM continues to expand its sports betting platform to new jurisdictions. The company also provides resources to help customers play responsibly through its ongoing partnership with GameSense, a responsible gaming program first developed and licensed in 2017 by the British Columbia Lottery Corporation to MGM Resorts.
BetMGM recently sponsored the Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey's annual conference in West Windsor, New Jersey.
