The Sixers are adding another winner to the roster, and no, we’re not talking about James Harden.
Fortunately, this new addition looks to serve the franchise just as well as our #21 MVP, superstar center Joel Embiid.
In a news release Thursday, BetMGM announced the launch of 76ers-branded Blackjack and Roulette online casino games.
These new titles will be available on BetMGM Casino and Borgata Casino in Pennsylvania and BetMGM Casino, Borgata Casino, and Party Casino in New Jersey.
One Slam-Dunk Partnership – Two New Ways To Play
The games will use the colors and logos of the Philadelphia 76ers to provide players with an immersive experience in the Pennsylvania online casino.
- 76ers Blackjack will allow gameplay in up to five seats and includes popular side bets.
- 76ers Roulette features realistic animations, additional neighbor section bets, and a full results interface.
- You can enjoy the excitement of the Wells Fargo Arena right in your living room.
- In addition, online players will be seated in a virtual three-dimensional suite that looks like the real 76ers’ home arena.
“We are proud to broaden our partnership with the 76ers, a historic NBA franchise, through the introduction of these new branded roulette and blackjack games,” Oliver Bartlett, Director of Gaming, BetMGM said in the release. “These games are great additions to BetMGM’s ever-growing casino offerings in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.”
BetMGM Partners With 76ers: Est. 2020
The Philadelphia 76ers became BetMGM’s first NBA gaming partner in December of 2020. In addition to the casino games, the partnership focuses on digital fan engagement campaigns and promotions. BetMGM has also been prominently featured on the Sixers’ arena signage and across the team’s digital and social platforms.
“BetMGM has been an incredible partner over the last two seasons, and we’re excited to showcase our growing collaborations with the introduction of 76ers Roulette and Blackjack,” Owen Morin, Sixers Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships said in the release. “We know that these new, innovative offerings will be a big hit with 76ers fans throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania.”
BetMGM Knows How To Choose A Winning Squad
BetMGM’s live dealer partner, Evolution, developed the Sixers basketball-themed Blackjack and Roulette games.
The games also feature a ‘Go Live’ button. This takes players out of their luxury suite, onto the hardwood, and directly into the live version of the game.
In December, BetMGM announced a similar deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
- They brought the “terrible” black and yellow theme to BetMGM’s online blackjack and roulette games in PA.
- BetMGM’s partnership with the Steelers began in November 2020, just a month before the Sixers announced their own agreement.
- According to the news release, BetMGM is the top online casino operator in the United States.
- The company has also been a leader in Pennsylvania iGaming revenues as well.
Now, the BetMGM brand is getting entrenched even deeper into Pennsylvania with an assist from the Sixers. As Philadelphia’s team and its fans like to say: “Trust the process.” After all, it brought them star center Joel Embiid in the NBA Draft.
And now, thanks to BetMGM, it’s bringing them another 21 – a blue and red blackjack and roulette.
