Lace ’em up and get ready to face off with the latest game from BetMGM.

The company is putting the power play on the New Jersey online casino market with its latest offering courtesy of its existing partnership with Digital Gaming Corporation.

The first-ever NHL-endorsed online slot game comes from BetMGM: NHL Gold Blitz, now available in the Garden State.

How BetMGM’s NHL Gold Blitz sets itself apart

Courtesy of Digital Gaming Corporation’s B2B iGaming Division, NHL Gold Blitz enters New Jersey as a 6-by-4 video slot featuring 4,096 ways to win.

Players “skate through the action,” as a press release detailed it, that features NHL Gold Blitz Instant Cash Collection, Wild Multiplier Free Spins and exciting jackpots. Logos from all 32 NHL teams, obviously included the New Jersey Devils, help create an immersive NHL experience that BetMGM Online Casino NJ calls “a hat trick of excitement and entertainment.”

“BetMGM is ecstatic to partner with the NHL and Digital Gaming Corporation to bring this first-of-its-kind slot to BetMGM,” Oliver Bartlett, vice president of gaming product and content at BetMGM, said in a press release. “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.”

Added Neill Whyte, chief commercial officer of Digital Gaming Corporation’s B2B iGaming Division:

“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 NHL Gold Blitz does just that. A great game, a great brand and a great team.”

BetMGM continues sports-centric themes among NJ online casinos

The arrival of NHL Gold Blitz comes a year after BetMGM rolled out other NHL-branded casino games, ranging from roulette to blackjack to baccarat.

Also in 2022, BetMGM introduced New York Jets-themed blackjack and roulette, which features a three-dimensional rendering of a suite at MetLife Stadium, the NFL team’s home stadium in East Rutherford.

The Jets flavor didn’t stop there. Earlier this year, BetMGM launched Jets Deluxe, an online slot game adorned with Jets colors and logos.

BetMGM has been on a tear of late, most recently touching the nostalgic side of NJ online casinos with the rollout of Borgata Arcade.

BetMGM’s award-winning online casino is home to over 1,500 games and one of the largest state-by-state exclusive jackpot networks. In 2023, BetMGM was named Casino Operator of the Year by SBC North America, EGR North America, Global Gaming Awards, and American Gambling Awards.
