BetMGM announced the launch of its National Hockey League® (NHL)-branded casino games. The games include roulette, blackjack, baccarat and the new live Money Wheel game, Dream Catcher.
All games are available to players in New Jersey, Ontario, Pennsylvania and Michigan.
“The launch of these one-of-a-kind games further strengthens our relationship with the NHL,” said Oliver Bartlett, BetMGM’s Director of Gaming.
“As the season approaches, we’re thrilled that our players will have the ability to ‘drop the puck’ with BetMGM.”
Developed in partnership with Evolution, the games feature three-dimensional renderings and animations that deliver an immersive experience. Each game features a unique ‘go live’ button, taking players onto the ice and directly into BetMGM’s live dealer version of the same game. The NHL’s logo is prominently featured in each game with team logos cycling throughout the rendered arena.
NHL Roulette features realistic ball movements and full, interactive results and statistics. NHL Blackjack players are placed at a table inside an arena skybox with the ability to move virtually between seats. NHL Baccarat offers players an experience similar to a live casino game highlighted by many of the game’s same features. Finally, Dream Catcher allows players to bet on the number on which they think the wheel will stop, amplifying the suspense various multipliers.
Jason Jazayeri, NHL Vice President, Business Development, 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.”
