BetMGM continues to do its part to be an innovative leader in online gambling. Last week, BetMGM joined with Inspired Entertainment to announce the launch of MGM Bonus City, a new Hybrid Dealer game.

Currently available at BetMGM in New Jersey, the first Hybrid Dealer game in North America will soon be added to the library of games available at Michigan online casinos.

MGM Bonus City to provide a new virtual experience

MGM Bonus City will utilize Inspired Entertainment’s technology that seamlessly integrates virtual CGI, green screen technology and footage of real dealers to create an unparalleled gaming experience. It will soon be part of the BetMGM Michigan.

The game virtually transports its players to Las Vegas. There, players can choose from eight potential outcomes and spin on the big wheel. That includes four iconic Las Vegas MGM property-themed bonus rounds: New York-New York, Luxor, MGM Grand and Bellagio.

Before the host spins, the game randomly awards a special multiplier that can enhance the player’s winnings.

Hybrid Dealer is a new product category that offers players branded casino and gameshow content by blending physical and digital elements.

“MGM Bonus City brings an added level of fun to BetMGM, allowing players to experience MGM Resorts’ Las Vegas casinos in a new way. We’re confident that our customers will enjoy this unique digital offering,” said Senior Director of Gaming at BetMGM Oliver Bartlett in a press release.

Game outcomes require no studio as they are random-number-generated. The scheduled action continues 24/7, with the hosts changing regularly to keep players engaged.

Operating in 35 jurisdictions worldwide, Inspired now partners with BetMGM to jump into North American online casino gaming.

“We are thrilled to partner with BetMGM to introduce our revolutionary Hybrid Dealer technology via MGM Bonus City,” said Brooks Pierce, President and Chief Executive Officer of Inspired. “Our patented technology offers unparalleled opportunities for our customers to provide a realistic ‘as live’ experience to players without the logistics of dedicated studios and staffing. This is just the start of a whole new category of games.”

MGM Bonus City will be available on desktops, the BetMGM app and Android. It will also be available on iOS in the near future.
