Double-Up Blackjack will be launched as part of the new deal.

BetMGM has partnered with Score Gaming, which creates and designs table games and side bets, to launch Double-Up Blackjack. 

Double-Up Blackjack will be available for the first time exclusively at BetMGM Casino and Borgata Online in New Jersey. 

The basis of this new game is traditional blackjack, but it also allows players the chance to double their wager on any 2-card hand, except for a natural blackjack. 

This Double-Up feature is built around Score Gaming’s proprietary End 16 Rule, which means 'players can win but never lose' when the dealer has a 16. There is also a side bet called 16 Bonus, an optional wager that wins when the dealer’s cards total 16. 

Double-Up Blackjack made its debut in land-based casinos in 2012; BetMGM says today over a third of casinos have multiple Double-Up games on the gaming floor. 

VP of Gaming Product, Oliver Bartlett, said: "Double-Up Blackjack offers a twist on the classic game and adds another layer of excitement for players. Double-Up Blackjack further strengthens the variety of our table game offerings that feature in-house produced titles from Entain, as well as great partners like Score Gaming." 

Founder and President of Score Gaming, Merrill Sparago MD, added: “Score Gaming shares in BetMGM’s excitement and looks forward to collaborating with BetMGM to bring a consistent stream of new End 16 content to the online space.” 

On Monday, Relax Gaming announced its debut in the US market through a partnership with BetMGM, going live in New Jersey.
