BetMGM joins forces with Evolution and The Tom Joyner Foundation

Sports betting and digital gaming company BetMGM has launched a range of live tables on its BetMGM Casino platform in West Virginia, using technology from B2B supplier of live casino content, Evolution.

The development sees players gain access to the state’s first private blackjack table, as well as Roulette, Auto Roulette, Lightning Roulette, Infinite Blackjack, Speed Baccarat, Ultimate Texas Hold’em and Three Card Poker games.

“BetMGM is thrilled to make our market leading live dealer experience available to players in West Virginia,” commented Oliver Bartlett, Director of Gaming at BetMGM.

“Our partnership with Evolution is an important part of our player-first strategy, helping us remain the most dominant live gaming operator in the US.”

The launch has been announced alongside BetMGM’s partnership with The Tom Joyner Foundation, a driving force behind scholarship distribution and fundraising for Historically Black Colleges and Universities, to offer an Executive Series to HBCUs across the US.

Under the terms of the partnership, HBCU students will be offered the opportunity to network with BetMGM executives and navigate the recruitment process in preparation for career opportunities at the company after graduation. 

Tom Joyner, Founder of Foundation, noted: “Our goal has been to keep students in school, and it is critical that we ensure their success after graduation through phenomenal partnerships with organisations such as BetMGM.”

The Executive Series will consist of executive-student panels, professional resume critiques, and job interview preparation, in an aim to help graduating seniors pursue roles in HR, finance, legal, marketing, product design and more.

“We’re proud to partner with The Tom Joyner Foundation in working with HBCU students to help them identify pathways to successful careers,” added Adam Greenblatt, Chief Executive Officer at BetMGM.

“Our goal at BetMGM is to promote equitable candidate experiences and an inclusive working environment.”
