BetMGM Partners with Score Gaming to Launch Double-Up Blackjack



Online debut of blackjack variant game exclusively available at BetMGM

BetMGM, a leading iGaming and sports betting operator, announced that it has partnered with Score Gaming, a specialist in the creation and design of table games and side bets, to launch Double-Up Blackjack. Double-Up Blackjack is now available online for the first time exclusively at BetMGM Casino and Borgata Online in New Jersey.

Double-Up Blackjack takes traditional blackjack to the next level by offering players the chance to double their wager on any 2-card hand, except for a natural blackjack. To “double-up,” a player places an additional wager of any amount, up to the original wager. Double-Up is built around Score Gaming’s proprietary End 16 Rule, which enhances the game by ensuring players can win, but can never lose when the dealer has a 16. The game also features a new side bet, 16 Bonus, an optional wager that wins when the dealer’s cards total 16. The payouts are based on the number of cards it takes the dealer to total 16, with payouts of up to 500x.

“Double-Up Blackjack offers a twist on the classic game and adds another layer of excitement for players. Double-Up Blackjack further strengthens the variety of our table game offerings that feature in-house produced titles from Entain, as well as great partners like Score Gaming.” – OLIVER BARTLETT – VICE PRESIDENT OF GAMING PRODUCT

Double-Up Blackjack debuted at land-based casinos in 2012 and achieved global success. Today, over a third of casinos have multiple Double-Up games on the gaming floor. Double-Up Blackjack is the first offering from Score Gaming’s suite of End 16 games.

“Score Gaming shares in BetMGM’s excitement and looks forward to collaborating with BetMGM to bring a consistent stream of new End 16 content to the online space.” – MERRILL SPARAGO MD – FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT OF SCORE GAMING
