NHL branded casino games to hit North America courtesy of BetMGM


BetMGM, in partnership with Evolution, has disclosed the launch of a series of National Hockey League branded titles that are set to hit North American igaming markets.

These branded casino games, including roulette, blackjack, baccarat and a new live Money Wheel game titled Dream Catcher, are set to be 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 Oliver Bartlett, BetMGM’s Director of Gaming.

“As the season approaches, we’re thrilled that our players will have the ability to ‘drop the puck’ with BetMGM.”

These aforementioned online casino offerings each feature a go live button that takes players onto the ice and directly into BetMGM’s live dealer version.

The titles, complete with three-dimensional renderings and animations, will see the NHL logo prominently displayed in each with team emblems cycling throughout the rendered arena.

Jason Jazayeri, NHL Vice President, Business Development, said, “We’re excited to broaden our relationship with BetMGM through the development of NHL-branded casino games, 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.”  

NHL Roulette features realistic ball movements and interactive results and statistics, while blackjack sees players placed at a table inside an arena skybox with the ability to move virtually between seats. 

NHL Baccarat offers players an experience similar to a live casino game, while Dream Catcher allows users to bet on the number on which they think the wheel will stop.
