Mobile game developer PlayStudios has expanded its partnership with MGM Resorts International after adding the MGM Springfield hotel and casino resort to its collection of in-app rewards for players.

The facility becomes the seventeenth MGM property to be featured in the playAwards catalogue, allowing players to redeem loyalty points earned playing any of PlayStudios’ free-to-play social casino games for complimentary and discounted rewards from the resort’s food and beverage portfolio.

“This is an important extension of a partnership that has been very successful for both PlayStudios and MGM Resorts International,” noted Andrew Pascal, PlayStudios founder, chair, and chief executive officer

“Our companies recently celebrated our eighth anniversary as partners. We are proud to say that the relationship is stronger than ever. With MGM Springfield now represented in our rewards catalogue, the global family of PlayStudios players will be able to enjoy the sights, sounds, and experiences offered at this one-of-a-kind resort.”

MGM Springfield joined-up earlier this month, with redemptions temporarily limited to eateries operating under state-mandated pandemic guidelines, with additional rewards from the hotel, casino, and other amenities to be added to in the coming weeks and months. 

Chris Kelley, president and COO of MGM Springfield, stated: “We’re excited to see our partnership with PlayStudios continue to evolve as our company rolls out new resorts and amenities. Adding MGM Springfield to the playAwards program gives their players an opportunity to experience the excitement of MGM Resorts on the East Coast.”

PlayStudios and MGM Resorts International first partnered in August 2012, with players able to access rewards from a number of properties, including Bellagio, Aria, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, Park MGM, Vdara, The Mirage, New York-New York, Luxor, Excalibur, MGM National Harbor, Borgata, Beau Rivage, Gold Strike, and MGM Cotai.
