BetMGM's, Bison Fury online casino pays out one lucky player in West Virginia

A resident in West Virginia took home $156,000 by winning a slots jackpot while wagering with BetMGM Casino.

A Charles G. in the Mountain State is one lucky man, earning the quality payout from the $156K Colossal Jackpot. He won playing the exclusive slot title at BetMGM, Bison Fury.

Entain’s in-house game studio created Bison Fury in 2021.

BetMGM WV pays out

There is no better feeling than winning while gambling, especially if that amount surpasses six figures.

BetMGM’s director of online gaming, Oliver Bartlett, spoke about how this isn’t anything new for those at the operator. Bartlett said:

“Congratulations to Charles on his amazing win. This win is the third Colossal Jackpot awarded to a BetMGM player in the last three months and reaffirms our commitment to offering players life-changing prizes across all of our live markets.”

Of course, the jackpot winner was ecstatic. Charles G said:

“The prize was completely unexpected! I still can’t believe it’s real.”

BetMGM’s online casino app launched in WV in August 2020. It helps service The Greenbrier, along with its BetMGM Sportsbook WV.

BetMGM’s 2022 outlook

The operator is looking forward to this next year. It provided an update for the next 12 months, in which it hopes net revenues will exceed $1.3 billion.

BetMGM set its growth target at 20% to 25% for 2022 in regard to sports betting and online casino figures.

Expanding its reach is always a good way to ensure more profit. BetMGM is currently available in 19 different areas inside the US.

It’s committed to growth by investing in more markets. Along with Entain, the operator’s parent company, MGM Resorts, plans to invest around $450 million this year alone.

The online casino continues to get more innovative, too.

BetMGM released the debut of Borgata Bingo for its online customer base in the state of New Jersey. This is the first 75-ball, real-money online bingo game available in the country.

Although that isn’t offered to bettors in WV just yet, it could be something to look out for.

BetMGM continues to be one of the more popular casino apps in the majority of states it’s launched in. It has around a 32% national gross gaming revenue share when looking at WV, NJ, Pennsylvania and Michigan.

The company’s online casino and sportsbook accumulated $227 million toward the overall revenue in the third quarter. This figure increased 17% from the previous period.

Other statistics also show that BetMGM is heading in the right direction.

In the previous quarter, 42% of sign-ups for MGM’s rewards program, M life, derived from users from either BetMGM mobile app.

BetMGM is securing new partners in Arizona, Gila River Hotels and Casinos and the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals. Its online sportsbook is already active in the Grand Canyon State, along with several retail locations.
