Is BetMGM the online casino to watch in 2021?

We think so.

Find out why.

Who is BetMGM?

BetMGM – then called PlayMGM – joined the New Jersey online casino market on August 1, 2017. They teamed up with Borgata, and together with PartyCasino, the trio is climbing the market.

BetMGM is part of an international conglomerate. Although they have a large sportsbook, they spend no less attention on their online casino. 

So whereas sites like DraftKings and William Hill dabble in online casinos with limited places, BetMGM’s game selection is second only to Golden Nugget.

Golden Nugget’s Contender

For years now, Golden Nugget has been the top-earning legal online casino in New Jersey – and, in fact, in all of the U.S.!

But BetMGM has slowly been gaining on the Nugget. In November, BetMGM generated $23.4M, and Golden Nugget $26M. 

This means we can expect to see BetMGM overtake in 2021?

Why BetMGM Will be #1 in 2021

With two Covid vaccines now being distributed, sports will be back on the table in 2021. Eager sports fans will be ready to bet!

But not only will BetMGM enjoy spillover from their sportsbook. BetMGM thrived, nearly meeting Golden Nugget under Covid restrictions.

With BetMGM’s new casino clients and the spillover from their sportsbook, they will be a serious force to be reconned with. 

BetMGM is also closing in on Golden Nugget’s long reign as the provider of most games. We also expect to see BetMGM surpass Golden Nugget in-game offerings in 2021.
