BetMGM has always made extra effort to be among the US online gambling industry leaders.

One of the company’s latest achievements is partnering with Atlantic Digital to be the studio’s exclusive US home for gaming products. BetMGM Casino announced on Jun 17 that it is debuting two online slots:

  • “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective”
  • “Cheers”

Key takeaways

  • “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” and “Cheers” titles will be tested in Michigan first.
  • BetMGM recently dropped from the top spot earlier this year but climbed back up to be the top-performing Michigan online casino operator.
  • BetMGM has added many games and partnerships to its portfolio including an exclusive deal with Boldplay, new games added by 1X2 Network, and tapping Relax Gaming’s RLX Gaming.
  • Atlantic Digital says more movie and TV slot titles will be released soon.

BetMGM adds Atlantic Digital slots to Michigan online casinos

“Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” and “Cheers” mark Atlantic Digital’s North America debut on BetMGM in Michigan. The companies confirmed in the press release that both titles will be available in all jurisdictions where the US online casino operator is live pending regulatory approvals.

The Michigan online casino market is among the most successful in the US, next to Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

BetMGM Casino Michigan regained the top spot in May in terms of win. The operator has led the state market for 39 months since online casinos launched in January 2021.

FanDuel Casino briefly dethroned BetMGM in March and April of 2024.

BetMGM launch of Atlantic Digital games adds a new dimension to offering

Atlantic Digital specializes in online casino games based on classic movies and TV shows. Some of their most famous titles recognized by many players are “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and “Charlie’s Angels” slots.

The company’s CEO, Sam Hobcraft, said in the BetMGM news release: “We are delighted to work with these iconic brands – Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Cheers and BetMGM.

We have built two unique games that really show off the brands to their fullest extent, from classic theme tunes to animations showcasing all the characters.

It is a pleasure partnering with BetMGM to launch these branded games and add a new dimension to their product offering.”

“Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” is a 5×3, 20-pay line slot that offers four fixed jackpots, mini wheel respins, and bonus spins with cash-on-reels and multiplier wilds.

Based on the TV sitcom, the “Cheers” slot puts players inside this cozy bar in Boston to join the main characters. The 17-payline slot has re-spins with sticky, nudging wilds, three fixed jackpots, and nine diverse bonus games.

Other popular movie and TV-based titles on BetMGM Casino

BetMGM (NYSE: MGM) has been home to many online slots based on popular TV shows and movies. To name a few examples, BetMGM Casino players can enjoy slots like:

  • Peaky Blinders
  • Beavis and Butt-Head
  • Hercules

Oliver Bartlett, VP of Gaming Product & Content, BetMGM, told PlayUSA:

“Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” and “Cheers” are the latest additions from our exclusive partnership with Atlantic Digital. These two titles add another layer of variety from previous releases like ‘The Godfather’ and ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation.’ TV and movie titles are recognizable brands and when they are translated creatively for iGaming they tend to resonate well with built-in fan bases and slot players.”

BetMGM announced the arrival of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” slot game in January. It resulted from BetMGM initiating a strategic alliance with Atlantic Digital, solidifying BetMGM’s position as the sole US distributor of the studio’s offerings in 2023.

After signing the agreement, BetMGM introduced “The Godfather” slot last year.
