When MGM Resorts International bought out long-time partner Boyd Gaming Corporation’s interest in the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in August 2016, the industry-leading global hospitality, casino, and entertainment company immediately expressed an interest in launching a BETMGM Casino and Poker site in New Jersey.
In fact, MGM senior vice president of business development Tom Mikulich told the press the organization was “indeed interested in the online opportunities out East and are hopeful to launch our MGM Resorts brand out there in the near future.”
Those plans became a reality in August 2017 when MGM full launched their online casino.
