Sports betting and online casino operator BetMGM recently launched its first-ever National Hockey League-endorsed online slot game, NHL Gold Blitz.

In the pursuit of reaching a broad audience, BetMGM strategically introduced the game in the thriving New Jersey online casino market. It plans for further expansion into other states where online slots are authorized.

What to expect from the NHL Gold Blitz NJ online slots game

NHL Gold Blitz presents an engaging 6-row, 4-reel grid video slot game designed with 4,096 ways to win, and offering ample opportunities to secure prizes. In addition to its expansive winning possibilities, the game also features:

  • NHL Gold Blitz Instant Cash Collection
  • Wild Multiplier Free Spins
  • Jackpot rewards

Furthermore, this online slots game incorporates an added flair where it displays team logos of all 32 NHL teams and an NHL shield.

In correspondence to BetMGM management, Neill Whyte, chief commercial officer of Digital Gaming Corporation’s B2B iGaming division, emphasized the significance of this launch. In a BetMGM press release, he states it aligns with their overarching objective of providing games that offer a “high level” of engagement.

“In BetMGM, we have a partner that understands the importance of offering their players unique and diverse content that delivers the high levels of engagement and entertainment they are seeking. Our collaboration on the NHL Gold Blitz does just that. A great game, a great brand and a great team.”

Other NHL-branded games from BetMGM Casino

The introduction of this first-of-a-kind game comes after the iGaming operator released a series of NHL-branded casino games last year. This laid the groundwork for BetMGM’s continued collaboration with the NHL and Digital Gaming Corporation.

The games released last year include:

Collaborating with Evolution, BetMGM Casino crafted these games, incorporating three-dimensional renderings and animations to enhance the overall player experience.

With a dedicated effort to make each game stand out, every game is equipped with a ‘go live’ button, seamlessly transporting players to the BetMGM Casino live dealer version of the same game.

BetMGM took deliberate steps to ensure the games were launched in key online casino regions. And with its brand recognition solidifying its market share in the top echelons of the industry:

With over 1500 games and as the largest state-by-state jackpot network, BetMGM is steadily expanding. In this bid, BetMGM recently struck an agreement with LeoVegas Technology to debut in the UK.

Last month also saw the operator roll out Borgata Arcade in New Jersey.

The Vice President of Gaming Product & Content at BetMGM, Oliver Bartlett expressed delight in the collaboration with the NHL:

“BetMGM is ecstatic to partner with the NHL and Digital Gaming Corporation to bring this first-of-its-kind slot to BetMGM. The iconic NHL brand combined with the great action of the game make this a real winner. We are proud to offer this and many more unique games exclusively at BetMGM.”
