It’s back-to-back accolades for PA online casino operator BetMGM. Last week, the gaming brand was once again selected as the Casino Operator of the Year at the EGR North America Awards.

It’s the second straight year BetMGM online casino has earned that distinction.

BetMGM Casino stands out with a variety of offerings across four states

EGaming Review (EGR) selects its Casino Operator of the Year based on the brand’s strength, available products and overall advancements compared to competitors.

BetMGM Casino, which currently operates online casinos in four states (New Jersey, West Virginia, Michigan and Pennsylvania), stood out from the rest of the field for a range of factors, including:

  • An extensive variety of game offerings
  • The nation’s largest exclusive state-by-state in-house progressive jackpot network
  • Numerous first-class partnerships
  • A national online casino market share that is estimated at 29%

In a press release, BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt said:

“BetMGM is honored to once again be presented with this prestigious award. As the industry evolves, we look forward to providing new and innovative products for our customers.”

Pittsburgh area player recently won $1 million at BetMGM PA

Here in Pennsylvania, BetMGM’s presence continues to expand with new games and headline jackpots arriving on a regular basis.

Last month, a BetMGM online casino player from West Mifflin won a $1 million jackpot on a $1 bet. The player earned the seven-figure payout thanks to MGM Grand Millions, a progressive-jackpot game that is a BetMGM exclusive.

According to PlayPennsylvania, the player planned to invest some of the money and also donate a portion to children’s hospitals.

It also noted that BetMGM paid out more than $104 million in progressive jackpots in 2022.

BetMGM and Buffalo Wild Wings just partnered on a slot game

Another BetMGM game produced in partnership with Buffalo Wild Wings made news. The 5×4 slot was developed exclusively for BetMGM by Inspired Entertainment. The game gives players the same feel of the restaurant and bar franchise. Burgers, sports symbols and the Buffalo Wild Wings logo scroll through the screen.

BetMGM first partnered with Buffalo Wild Wings in 2021 on a project that uses in-restaurant geolocation to provide unique sports betting promotions. In addition, the OT Odds Powered by BetMGM feed provides sports betting odds, content and gaming tips to restaurant patrons at many Buffalo Wild Wings locations.

“We have a great partner in Buffalo Wild Wings,” Oliver Bartlett, BetMGM’s Director of Gaming, said in a news release. “And we look forward to continuing to work with them to deliver innovative experiences players can only find on BetMGM.”

BetMGM, other PA online casinos, hit record revenue in March

BetMGM and Pennsylvania’s other online casinos produced record revenue this past March. PA operators recorded $181.5 million in total March revenue. That number is an all-time record not only for PA, but also for any state that operates online casinos in the US.

BetMGM has played a major role in helping the Hollywood Penn National brand become the leading online casino licensee in Pennsylvania.

In March, Hollywood Penn National generated $76,673,159 in online casino revenue. That total is nearly double its closest competitor, Rivers Philadelphia ($38,477,198).

However, because both BetMGM and DraftKings online casino are partners with Hollywood (among others), it is not exactly known what individual totals each brand produces.

Even still, it is abundantly clear that BetMGM has a strong foothold in PA’s gaming space. As previously noted, its national online casino market share is about 29%. In PA and beyond, BetMGM is constantly adding new partners, game titles and other innovations.
