Bingo! We got bingo!
New Jersey online casino options expanded Wednesday as BetMGM announced the launch of Borgata Bingo online in the Garden State.
This gives New Jersey players access to the first 75-ball real money online casino bingo product in the United States, as well as to a host of other slot games and jackpot prizes.
This is the first bingo product built exclusively for BetMGM by Entain.
This is a completely separate app from the Borgata Online Casino and Borgata Poker apps within the state.
In New Jersey, Borgata offers players four separate apps (Bingo, Poker, Sports, Casino). However, there is a great amount of crossover for player ease such as casino games are available via the sports/bingo apps, sports/poker offerings are available via the casino app, etc).
“Borgata Bingo provides players with an engaging digital gaming experience – one that builds upon the fun of live, in-person bingo,” said Matthew Sunderland, vice president of gaming for BetMGM, in a news release. “We’re pleased to introduce this first-of-its-kind platform as we further expand the Borgata brand online.”
Many Options for Bingo, Other Games
Borgata Bingo features both 75- and 90-ball bingo games.
In addition to a full schedule of bingo programming and content, Borgata Bingo players also can play Slingo and slot games, including the company’s progressive jackpot games.
Currently, BetMGM is the top online casino operator in the Garden State, with a reported 30% gross gaming revenue (GGR) market share in October. It is also the leading online gaming operator in the U.S., with an estimated 32% national GGR market share across its live markets in four states: New Jersey, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Michigan.
Borgata Bingo is available for download in New Jersey on both iOS and Android, as well as via desktop.
New Poker Action This Month
Just five days ago, BetMGM had announced two new online poker series during the holidays with Partypoker US Network’s Cheap Stakes and New Year Knockout Weekend.
Cheap Stakes starts this week. It will be an online poker low-stakes tournament series, featuring daily buy-ins of $20 and $50 and will run from Dec. 17-26.
That will be followed by New Year Knockout Weekend, a tournament series built solely around progressive knockout bounty events. That runs from Dec. 29 through Jan. 2, 2022.
“We’re thrilled to roll this out for the first time across all of our live markets,” Luke Staudenmaier, director of poker for BetMGM, said in a press release. “Cheap Stakes provides low-stakes players a chance at great prizing on the heels of last month’s End Boss series, during which we hosted events with higher stakes across the board.
“Just after that wraps up, New Year Knockout Weekend helps end this year and ring in the new one with a celebration of one of the most entertaining formats in poker.”
The poker games can be played in New Jersey through BetMGM Poker, Borgata Poker and partypoker NJ.
Last Monday, Poker Stars unveiled another event on the New Jersey poker calendar. “25 Days of Tournaments” runs from now until Dec. 30. Each event has a $50 buy-in version and a mini $10 buy-in version.
