The hits just keep on coming for BetMGM.

One of the leading online casinos in New Jersey just bolstered its portfolio in the Garden State by adding slots modeled after some hit TV show and movies.

Thanks to a partnership with Atlantic Digital, the BetMGM online casino will integrate titles ranging from Ace Ventura to Cheers, bringing the nostalgia of some blockbuster hits to the new era of iGaming in New Jersey after first making their debuts in Michigan.

“BetMGM is a destination for the most recognizable movie and TV shows-turned slot games,” Oliver Bartlett, vice president of gaming product and content at BetMGM, said in a statement.

“Taking popular movies and TV shows and reimagining them for iGaming is a great way players can experience them in a different and exciting way. Our partnership with Atlantic Digital has added an element of exclusivity and entertainment to our already expansive library of games.”

Keep it ‘all righty, then’ with Ace Ventura at BetMGM Casino NJ

What’s not to love about these newest titles at BetMGM Casino NJ?

Quote Jim Carrey’s iconic 1990s pet detective while playing Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.

Imagine opening the 5-by-3, 20-line slot: “If I’m not back in five minutes … just wait longer.”

Join the classic character on a “wild journey,” as BetMGM describes it, as he searches for Snowflake the dolphin. With four fixed jackpots, mini wheel respins, and bonus spins with cash-on-reels and multiplier wilds, there is plenty to enjoy with this blockbuster hit.

Not to mention slot symbols such as Ace’s rubber face, Ray Finkle jerseys, and laces-out footballs.

Of course, we can’t all be winners. And thanks to Ace Ventura, we have a comment ready to unleash to keep things light-hearted: “LOOO-HOOO-ZUH-HER!”

‘Cheers’ to a small-screen hit at BetMGM

If the big screen blockbuster doesn’t grab your attention, how about a classic 1980s sitcom?

In Cheers, you can take a seat inside the classic Boston bar with the likes of our favorite TV characters Sam Malone, Woody Boyd, Norm Peterson, and more.

You will have the chance to ensure that everyone knows your name playing this 3-by-3, 17-line slot, per BetMGM, featuring “respins with sticky, nudging wilds, three fixed jackpots and nine different bonus games.”

“We are delighted to work with these iconic brands – Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Cheers and BetMGM,” Sam Hobcraft, CEO of Atlantic Digital, said in a press release.

“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.”

BetMGM riding hit titles to NJ online casino supremacy

Recall late last year when BetMGM New Jersey brought in The Godfather as part of its first Atlantic Digital integration, quickly becoming the most popular exclusive game at the NJ online casino.

BetMGM also went live with Charlie’s Angels and Star Trek: The Next Generation. The company teased that more movie and TV slot titles “are coming soon” to BetMGM.

This has certainly helped BetMGM firmly establish itself as a go-to online casino in New Jersey. Since the Division of Gaming Enforcement began tracking skin-specific revenue in January, BetMGM has totaled a whopping $$110.3 million in NJ online casino revenue, trailing only DraftKings and FanDuel.
