New York Jets fans and gamblers will have two new Jets-themed online casino table games to play and try their luck with.
BetMGM has announced the launch of two titles for New Jersey online casinos — New York Jets Blackjack and New York Jets Roulette — with its live dealer partner, Evolution. Online casino games are legal in New Jersey, while they are not in New York.
The games are set to a three-dimensional rendering of a suite at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, home of the Jets, according to a news release.
“BetMGM has a very strong, long-standing relationship with the New York Jets and we're proud of the work we've done together to elevate the fan experience,” Oliver Bartlett, director of gaming for BetMGM, said in the release. “These latest additions strengthen our market-leading games portfolio in New Jersey and we’re confident that Jet fans and casino players alike will gravitate toward them.”
Partners Since 2018
In 2018, the Jets signed a partnership with MGM Resorts, parent company of BetMGM, which has grown to include a 1,000-square-foot BetMGM-branded studio at the team’s training facility in Florham Park to further fan engagement with content.
“We’re excited to build on our relationship with BetMGM and further our commitment to strengthening the fan experience across an array of platforms,” Jeff Fernandez, Jets vice president of business development and ventures, said in the release. “Fans will have the unique opportunity to play their favorite casino games right from their phone while enjoying an interactive virtual Jets experience inside MetLife Stadium.”
The Jets roulette game features ball animations, section bets, and a full results statistical interface.
The Jets blackjack game lets players wager in up to five seats and includes two popular side bets: 21+3 and Any Pair.
Both games will also feature a “go live” button that takes the player out of the suite, onto the field and directly into a live dealer version of the game they were playing, the release said.
“At Evolution, we are very proud of our U.S.-wide partnership with BetMGM and our successful history in New Jersey. Our latest collaboration, the launch of New York Jets Blackjack and Roulette games, is an exciting new development,” Jeff Millar, North America commercial director for Evolution, said in the release. “These two unique online games feature a great franchise and offer a fantastic branded gaming experience. We are confident the games will become absolute favorites with both Jets fans and online casino players across the state.”
Market Share Leader
BetMGM, which has reached an estimated 33% national market share in its four states of operation, is also the market share leader in New Jersey, where New York Jets blackjack and roulette are first being launched on BetMGM Casino, Borgata Casino, and PartyCasino.
The Jets (1-3) make the trip across the pond to play the Atlanta Falcons (1-3) at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on Sunday. It’s a 9:30 a.m. ET kickoff on NFL Network. In New Jersey sports betting, the Jets are slight (3.5 to 4.5 points) underdogs to the Falcons.
