BetMGM Thursday announced the launch of National Hockey League -branded casino games including roulette, blackjack, baccarat and the new live Money Wheel game, Dream Catcher. The games are available to players in New Jersey, Ontario, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.
“The launch of these one-of-a-kind games further strengthens our relationship with the NHL,” said BetMGM Director of Gaming Oliver Bartlett in a statement. “As the season approaches, we’re thrilled that our players will have the ability to ‘drop the puck’ with BetMGM.”
Developed in partnership with Evolution, the games feature three-dimensional renderings and animations. Each game features a unique ‘go live’ button, taking players onto the ice and directly into BetMGM’s live dealer version of the same game. The NHL’s logo is prominently featured in each game with team logos cycling throughout the rendered arena.
“We’re excited to broaden our relationship with BetMGM through the development of NHL-branded casino games,” said NHL Vice President, Business Development Jason Jazayeri, “particularly when these new platforms allow us to deepen the connection NHL fans have to our sport in a more immersive and compelling way. We look forward to collaborating with BetMGM on other fan-centric efforts in years to come.”
The NHL season begins Oct. 7 with the Nashville Predators playing the San Jose Sharks in Prague as part of the 2022 NHL Global Series.
