BetMGM Opens Online Casino and Sports Betting Operations in Pennsylvania
Sports betting enthusiasts in Pennsylvania were off to an early Christmas this year as the BetMGM online sports betting platform unveiled on December 18, 2020. The mobile sports betting platform is now officially accessible following a short soft testing period earlier this month.
The iGaming products were launched right at the heels of the online casino’s launch in the Keystone State. And the operator is offering up to $500 for all new customers on BetMGM PA along with a 100% Match Deposit Bonus. Pennsylvania is the seventh state where the BetMGM online casino app is live.
BetMGM Offers Online Sports Betting in Pennsylvania
According to BetMGM, the platform promises to offer a user-friendly sports betting experience. The portfolio includes live in-play bets alongside futures and parlays wagers. The app is available over iOS, Android, and desktop. The developers have also integrated the M Life Rewards program that enables BetMGM PA customers to earn status points based on gameplay.
All accumulated points can be redeemed across MGM properties within the nation. To top it off, BetMGM recently announced a partnership with the Pittsburgh Steelers and is the franchise’s official Gaming and Sports Betting Partner. As part of the agreement, BetMGM will sponsor the Steelers Kickoff pregame show while being prominently featured across the stadium during games.
BetMGM also earned an Interactive Gaming Operator license along with Road Digital, LLC. from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board earlier this year. The company initiated its soft launch testing phase on December 1 in association with Hollywood Casino. The tests were conducted over three days where selected punters from the state could test the limited portfolio for 8, 10, or 12 hours at a stretch.
Following a successful beta testing phase, the company’s entire portfolio was available by the end of the first week in December. BetMGM PA customers can now access over 140 games, and according to a BetMGM spokesperson, “this represents the widest range of games currently available in the country”.
BetMGM Pennsylvania Welcome Bonus
BetMGM Pennsylvania offered patrons $25 in Freeplay along with a $1000 Match Deposit Bonus as part of its Welcome Bonus Deal. The site is also hosting a Launch Party Sweepstake to commemorate the event. During the first week of the event, a lucky participant won a luxury pick-up truck. While the launch party continues every week with a different Grand Prize.
Players can claim five free spins every Friday during December by registering and depositing just $10. While iGaming is now the new norm in the Keystone State, any plans of offering online poker services are still uncertain. Road Digital LLC in association with the partypoker US Network currently operates in New Jersey. Expansion plans into nearby states like Pennsylvania and Michigan aren’t official as of yet. Maybe 2021 will bear better news for the poker enthusiasts.
