To get a good grasp of what options are available to supplement your iGaming enjoyment in the Keystone State, the following items are pertinent:
- Expansions in catalogs of available games
- June online casino promos
- Reward programs
- Sign-up bonuses
Pennsylvania online casino promotions for BetMGM and Borgata players
While these brands maintain separate customer rolls due to operating under different licenses, MGM owns both brands. Thus, you’ll see many of the same features and games on both apps. The least of those isn’t participation in MGM’s M Life Rewards program. You can earn points in that system on both/either app(s).
Current promotions: The Coin Flip promo is currently active on both apps. It’s pretty straightforward, too. Call which side a virtual coin will land on and if you’re right, you get prizes of site credit in various denominations. Both apps are also offering a Play & Earn promo with extra rewards of up to $200 but on Borgata PA Casino, that promo is only good on Thursdays. BetMGM is also running a deal around the Fjord of Riches Roulette Pro SP. Wager at least $10 and you will get $5 in free play.
New member sign-up bonuses: BetMGM PA Casino offers $25 in free play to all new accounts and a 100% match of your first deposit up to $1,000. Borgata’s introductory offer is identical on the first deposit match but the initial free play is just $20.
Reward program: As previously mentioned, players on both apps can participate in MGM’s M Life Rewards program. Gameplay earns points at the same rate on either app, so there’s no advantage to playing one over the other if this is important to you.
Slots: BetMGM offers 180 different titles from producers like IGT, NetEnt, and SGC. Borgata’s catalog of slots slightly bests that with 185 different options. Among them are several games with progressive jackpots. Those include Mercy of the Gods, Loot’En Khamun, Dead Sea Scrolls, and the exclusive MGM Grand Millions.
