American Gambling Awards gives best online casino award to BetMGM

BetMGM is really the best. Beloved by West Virginia online casino players, BetMGM was named the Online Casino of the Year at the 2022 American Gambling Awards at the end of November.

The awards committee praised BetMGM’s growth in 2022 and its strong games and engagement tools portfolio. BetMGM has been a major player in the West Virginia online casino market since its debut in August 2020. The award is a deserved recognition.

BetMGM’s chief revenue officer Matt Prevost said in a press release announcing the news:

“BetMGM is honored to be named Online Casino of the Year, and we’d like to thank Gambling.com for this incredible recognition. This award is reflective of our team’s hard work and dedication to setting a high iGaming standard.

“As North America’s leading iGaming operator, we remain focused on providing our customers with innovative gaming experiences, working with premier partners, and providing a world-class omnichannel experience.”

The BetMGM West Virginia online casino and sportsbook experience

Tethered to the famed Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia, BetMGM WV online casino promised game players an unforgettable experience when it began, launching over 30 online casino games.

Earlier this year, it announced the introduction of live table games, including poker, blackjack, and roulette.

At the time, it boasted West Virginia’s only progressive jackpot-linked games. These games offer the potential for a major payout with every spin.

“The addition of the leading iGaming offering in West Virginia is a powerful differentiator for BetMGM,” said Adam Greenblatt, CEO of BetMGM, at the time of launch. “With the largest slate of casino games in the state, we’re confident that our superior offering will quickly become the online gaming destination of choice for players.”

BetMGM was West Virginia’s third sanctioned sportsbook following the industry’s approval in the state in 2019. The casino is accessed through a tab on the BetMGM online sportsbook app.

BetMGM now has an estimated 30% national online casino share in four states: West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and New Jersey.

BetMGM committed to consistency and responsible gambling

West Virginia has online casinos linked to big gambling industry players Caesars, FanDuel, BetRivers, and DraftKings. But the BetMGM experience is what made it the winner nationally.

Charles Gillespie, chief executive officer of Gambling.com Group, who presented the awards, said:

“BetMGM continues to solidify its position as the iGaming industry leader in North America through its top-of-the-line casino product and is very deserving of receiving the Online Casino of the Year award.

“With its diverse game portfolio, first-class partnerships, and omnichannel focus, BetMGM offerings set them apart from their competitors.”

BetMGM continues to update its online casino offerings with new games each week. And it has reaffirmed its commitment to responsible gaming education by enlisting the services of the GameSense program.

This program reminds players of preset time and money limits while they are engaging with the online casino.
