BetMGM is proud to continue Ontario launch celebrations through the rollout of our dedicated live dealer studio & the expansion of our slot & table games portfolio on BetMGM Casino.Fans of live dealer games in Ontario have reason to celebrate, as BetMGM Casino Ontario announced that it will now offer six live casino blackjack tables from its own branded studio in Europe.
BetMGM Casino Ontario also announced that it has released 108 new slot and video table games on its platform as part of the celebration surrounding its April 4 launch in the province — the first day of regulated online casino gaming in Ontario. With the release, the operator has more than 170 gaming titles in total available on iOS.
Thirty titles exclusive to BetMGM — including MGM Grand Millions, Premium Blackjack Pro, and Mega Mirage Magma — are also on offer.
On Tuesday evening, the operator had 14 live blackjack tables available on its website.
“BetMGM is proud to continue Ontario launch celebrations through the rollout of our dedicated live dealer studio and the expansion of our slot and table games portfolio on BetMGM Casino,” said Matthew Sunderland, Vice President for Gaming at BetMGM.
European Studio is First Investment in Ontario
BetMGM said the new branded live dealer studio in Europe represents its first investment to support BetMGM Casino Ontario. Anthony Mallamaci, a spokesman for the operator, said the studio is located in the European nation of Georgia.
The Georgia studio was built through BetMGM’s partnership with Evolution Gaming, which will continue offering live dealer games to customers in the province using three studios that Evolution operates in Europe. Mallamaci said the Evolution studios being utilized on the BetMGM Casino Ontario platform are located in Bucharest, Riga, and Tbilisi — the capital cities of Romania, Latvia, and Georgia, respectively.
The content Evolution initially offered Ontario customers starting on April 4 “is still very much available through BetMGM,” Mallamaci said Tuesday. To that end, BetMGM added that players in the province will continue to have “access to the full Evolution portfolio of online live casino games and games shows, Evolution First Person games, and NetEnt and Red Tiger online slots.”
New Slot Games & Video Table Games Also Released
BetMGM Ontario said games from partners NetEnt (Divine Fortune, Gonzo’s Quest), IGT (Cleopatra, Wheel of Fortune Megaways), Pariplay (Jackpot Fortunes, Spirit of Mustang), and Pragmatic Play (Cash Bonanza, Treasure Wild) are included in the latest update. The operator said it also has more than 700 slots, table, and variety games available. Desktop, iOS, and Android versions of the BetMGM Casino Ontario app can be played.
“Through our live offering, the goal is to strengthen Ontarians’ touchpoints with our iconic, black-and-gold BetMGM brand,” Sunderland said. “By more than doubling our games count through in-house, exclusive games, and relationships with our partners, we’re pleased to bring a larger piece of what’s become the industry’s best portfolio in the US to our new players in Canada.”
In the US, BetMGM and Evolution partnered to launch live dealer casino games in New Jersey in November 2020. They launched live dealer games in Pennsylvania in December 2020 and in Michigan in July 2021.
While BetMGM Casino PA and its counterpart, BetMGM Casino NJ, offer live dealer games through unbranded studios in Philadelphia and Atlantic City, respectively, BetMGM Casino MI took a different approach — it built its own branded studio in Southfield, MI. That studio is awaiting approval from the Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB) and is not yet live.
