BetMGM Michigan debuts new NHL online casino games

BetMGM Casino has never been shy about incorporating sports themes into its Michigan online casino games.

Earlier this month, BetMGM announced the addition of new NHL-branded table games for its players to enjoy.

All of the classic table games now come with a pro hockey feel, and players will also find a new game in the mix.

Which BetMGM casino games have NHL branding?

BetMGM Michigan is now offering NHL roulette, blackjack and baccarat at its online casino.

It also has added a new live Money Wheel Game, Dream Catcher.

“The launch of these one-of-a-kind games further strengthens our relationship with the NHL,” Oliver Bartlett, Director of Gaming at BetMGM said in a press release. “As the season (begins), we’re thrilled that our players will have the ability to ‘drop the puck’ with BetMGM.”

These games were developed by BetMGM in partnership with Evolution.

“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,” said Jason Jazayeri, NHL Vice President of Business Development. “We look forward to collaborating with BetMGM on other fan-centric efforts in years to come.”

What the NHL casino games feature

The new games feature 3-dimensional renderings and animations to attempt to deliver an immersive experience for the user.

You will find the NHL logo prominently displayed in each game, while team logos cycle throughout the virtual room.

The games also include a “go live” button, taking the players directly into BetMGM’s live dealer version of the same game.

Additional features of the specific games include:

  • NHL Roulette: Realistic ball movements with full, interactive results and statistics
  • NHL Blackjack: Player are inside a virtual table in an arena skybox with the ability to move between seats.
  • Dream Catcher: Players bet on the number on which they think the wheel will stop. Various multipliers will amplify the suspense.
  • NHL Baccarat: An experience similar to a live casino game, highlighted by many of the game’s same features.

BetMGM Casino firmly on top in Michigan

BetMGM remains the king of online casinos in Michigan, owning 39.2 percent of the all-time revenue market share in the state.

At $845.8 million in all-time revenue, BetMGM is on pace to be the first to cross the $1 billion mark sometime in early 2023.

In September, BetMGM recorded $46.3 million in online casino revenue. It marked the 13th consecutive month that the operator has recorded at least $40 million in revenue.

Since online casinos began operation in January of 2021, BetMGM Michigan has taken the top spot in revenue each month. That’s 21 months and counting.
