Gambling tech firm Playtech is to roll-out its suite of casino software in New Jersey across the gaming network of the MGM Resorts International and GVC Holdings joint venture, BetMGM, for the first time.

As a result of the partnership, Playtech will provide its suite of casino software to a roster of brands that includes BetMGM Casino, Borgata Online and PartyCasino NJ.

Matthew Sunderland, BetMGM VP of gaming, commented: “Our online casino customers in New Jersey will now be able to enjoy casino games from one of the world’s leading suppliers of gambling software. 

“This launch continues to build on our current leadership position in gaming in New Jersey and we look forward to continue collaborating with Playtech as more states in the US legalize online casino gaming.”

Playtech says that this latest launch “demonstrates another significant step” in the group’s growth in the US market, with operational momentum set to see the firm expand into more states in the near future. 

Shimon Akad, Playtech COO, explained: “We are delighted to launch with leading operator BetMGM in New Jersey. This is the exciting first step in our partnership which will see us launch in further states with BetMGM across its industry leading portfolio of brands as it expands on its US leadership. 

“Starting in New Jersey, for the first time our award winning casino offering is now available across BetMGM, Borgata Online and PartyCasino NJ. This strategic deal demonstrates the strength of Playtech’s US proposition and the appeal of our gaming offering in the region as we continue to launch our pipeline of new US licensees.”

Earlier this month, content provider Digital Gaming Corporation made its US debut after taking its suite of online slot titles live with BetMGM, the joint venture between MGM Resorts International and GVC Holdings.

The licensing agreement between DGC and BetMGM will see the provider’s multi-channel content made available to all of the operator’s aforementioned brands.
