Written By Brant James on April 29, 2021

BetMGM Poker and Borgata Poker launched in Pennsylvania on Thursday as Pennsylvania online poker options increased to three. Previously, PokerStars had the state to itself.

BetMGM Poker is now live in three states (including Michigan and New Jersey), while Borgata Poker is live in two, but both brands are already popular PA online casino operators. Both the BetMGM Poker and Borgata Poker apps are available on their websitees.

“Pennsylvanians can now experience our superior poker offering through both BetMGM Poker and Borgata Poker,” BetMGM Chief Executive Officer Adam Greenblatt said in the release “We’re eager to expand our platform to a larger online audience, and give players in the Keystone State safe, accessible and entertaining poker options.”

BetMGM, Borgata details and bonus offers

New players in Pennsylvania are eligible to receive a $25 bonus and a 100% deposit match bonus, up to $600, according to BetMGM. They are also eligible for one “Opening Week Freeroll” event between May 9-16.

Existing BetMGM and Borgata Casino players who sign up for the poker offering will receive an invitation to the $40,000 Crossover Invitational Freeroll event on May 16.

BetMGM Poker and Borgata Poker are run under the partypoker US network but have their own digital wallets. The BetMGM sports betting and poker apps are single-wallet integrated and Borgata Poker is integrated with Borgata Casino in Pennsylvania. BetMGM and Borgata are both managed by Entain, giving them similarities in appearance. They will also share player pools.

According to a release, the offerings, working in concert on the Partypoker US Network, will give customers “access to benefits tied to Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa in Atlantic City as well as other MGM Resorts’ casino-resorts nationwide.”

“Pennsylvania customers will find that BetMGM Poker and Borgata Poker provide engaging experiences for both new and seasoned players,” Ray Stefanelli, Director of Poker, BetMGM, said in a release. “The partypoker US Network supports the online poker community, providing access to training initiatives designed to help all participants strengthen their play.”

BetMGM Poker and Borgata Poker is integrated with MGM Resorts’ M life Rewards program, making gameplay redeemable at resort properties including Borgata and MGM Grand, Bellagio and ARIA in Las Vegas, MGM Grand Detroit, MGM National Harbor in Maryland, and Beau Rivage in Mississippi.

BetMGM Poker went live through the license of retail partner Hollywood Casino Grantville. Borgata Poker is in league with Rivers Philadelphia.
