BetMGM, a leading iGaming and sports betting operator, and Inspired Entertainment, a leading B2B provider of gaming content, technology, hardware, and services, announced the launch of MGM Bonus City, an innovative online Hybrid Dealer game.
MGM Bonus City utilizes Inspired Entertainment’s groundbreaking technology that seamlessly integrates Virtual CGI, green screen technology, and footage of real dealers, creating an unparalleled gaming experience. BetMGM is North America’s first and only online casino to offer a Hybrid Dealer game. MGM Bonus City is available at BetMGM in New Jersey and will launch in Pennsylvania and Michigan in the near future.
MGM Bonus City virtually transports players to Las Vegas, where players can choose from eight potential outcomes that will spin on the big wheel, including four iconic Las Vegas MGM property-themed bonus rounds: New York-New York, Luxor, MGM Grand, and Bellagio. Before the host spins, the game randomly awards a special multiplier that can enhance the player’s winnings.
Hybrid Dealer is a new product category that offers players branded casino and gameshow content by blending physical and digital elements. Hybrid Dealer game outcomes require no studio as they are RNG-generated. The scheduled action continues 24/7, with the hosts changing regularly to keep players engaged.
“We are thrilled to partner with BetMGM to introduce our revolutionary Hybrid Dealer technology via MGM Bonus City. Our patented technology offers unparalleled opportunities for our customers to provide a realistic ‘as live’ experience to players without the logistics of dedicated studios and staffing. This is just the start of a whole new category of games,” Brooks Pierce, President and Chief Executive Officer of Inspired, said.
“MGM Bonus City brings an added level of fun to BetMGM, allowing players to experience MGM Resorts’ Las Vegas casinos in a new way. We’re confident that our customers will enjoy this unique digital offering,” Oliver Bartlett, Senior Director of Gaming at BetMGM, said.
