playMGM To Feature GVC Online Betting Content

The introduction of online gambling in the Garden State of New Jersey has had a slow start to what is becoming a stable growing enterprise. Online betting in America has seen some amazing interest in the early days when companies from all over the world were giving gamblers the opportunity anywhere in the USA. The prohibition, in 2006, when legislation known as the Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act was passed by the American government things changed dramatically for the online gambling industry. This created a great deal of confusion about the legality of online gambling in the US and many poker gambling sites closed their doors to American customers.

Some of the terrestrial casinos in the USA are making an effort to rejuvenate the gambling city of Atlantic City which includes offering internet betting. One of the large investors in the Atlantic City gambling market is the MGM Resorts International which owns a 50 percent stake in the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. The casino hotel features 2,002 rooms and is the largest hotel in New Jersey. Borgata opened in July 2003 and is the top-grossing casino in Atlantic City.  MGM Resorts International has announced a deal with GVC Holdings to launch an online poker room and casino in New Jersey via the new playMGM brand.

GVC Holdings a multinational sports betting and gaming group has provided software and other services to MGM’s Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and has also powered Borgata’s online casino and poker products since online gaming was regulated in New Jersey in November 2013.

Shay Segev, Chief operating officer of GVC, commented, “We are delighted to extend our relationship with MGM Resorts and to be launching casino and poker under the playMGM brand in New Jersey.

“MGM Resorts is quite simply one of the biggest and best names in the business, and we look forward to working with them for many years to come.”
