BetMGM launches online casino in West Virginia


BetMGM, the betting brand operated via the joint venture between GVC Holdings and MGM Resorts, has launched its online casino platform in West Virginia.

The BetMGM Casino brand will operate in under the license held by the Greenbrier Resort, and presented as a dedicated tab within the BetMGM Sports West Virginia mobile app.

Players will have access to 30 games initially, including a selection of slot titles and a range of table games.

“The addition of the leading igaming offering in West Virginia is a powerful differentiator for BetMGM,” BetMGM chief executive Adam Greenblatt said.

“With the largest slate of casino games in the state, we’re confident that our superior offering will quickly become the online gaming destination of choice for players.”

The BetMGM Casino is also active in New Jersey and will launch in Pennsylvania and Michigan in the coming months, subject to regulatory approvals.

BetMGM become only the second brand to launch an online casino product in West Virginia, after DraftKings rolled out its standalone casino app on 15 July in partnership with Penn National Gaming’s Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races.

Last week, the West Virginia Lottery Commission revealed the first four weeks of legal online casino in the state saw players wager $37.2m on DraftKings’ casino products, resulting in revenue of $824,639.
