NHL Gold Blitz launches in New Jersey, with other states potentially on ice.

BetMGM has launched the first online slot game endorsed by the National Hockey League (NHL) in the state of New Jersey. The game, titled NHL Gold Blitz, will also soon be launched in other legal iGaming states where BetMGM is live.

Oliver Bartlett, BetMGM’s VP of Gaming Product & Content, said, “BetMGM is ecstatic to partner with the NHL and Digital Gaming Corporation to bring this first-of-its-kind slot to BetMGM. The NHL brand combined with the action of the game make this a real winner. We are proud to offer this and many more unique games exclusively at BetMGM.”

Digital Gaming Corporation’s (DGC) B2B iGaming division also announced a partnership with Caesars Digital in Pennsylvania yesterday. The company has included all 32 NHL team logos in NHL Gold Blitz for BetMGM, as well as wild multiplier free spins, jackpot rewards and 4,096 ways to win the 6x4 video slot.

CCO of DGC’s B2B iGaminh Division, Neill Whyte, said, “In BetMGM we have a partner that understands the importance of offering their players unique and diverse content that delivers the high levels of engagement and entertainment. Our collaboration on NHL Gold Blitz does just that. A great game, a great brand and a great team.”

In 2022, BetMGM launched NHL-themed roulette, blackjack, baccarat and Dream Catcher money wheel games for its players in North American players in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Ontario, as well as featured NHL players Wayne Gretzky and Connor McDavid in its advertising.

BetMGM also recently launched a new “Library of Games” ad campaign last month featuring actress Vanessa Hudgens using the BetMGM app to travel through a library full of game-themed rooms.
