As the NBA season is officially here, BetMGM and the Philadelphia 76ers have come together on a multi-year sports betting partnership.
In addition to being the Sixers’ official sports betting partner, fans of the team will also be able to benefit from events happening all season long.
While the Sixers are working with BetMGM on the sports side, the team also has a presence on PA online casinos.
BetMGM PA supplies online casino players with Sixers-themed table games.
Details of Sixers and BetMGM’s PA online sports betting partnership
As the Sixers’ sports betting partner, fans of the team will be seeing BetMGM content across the team’s social media platforms and email campaigns. There will also be BetMGM signage throughout the Wells Fargo Center, including the grandstand, video board, and courtside LEDs.
The Sixers and BetMGM are getting fans involved with the partnership, too. BetMGM will coordinate VIP fan amenities including courtside access to pre-game shootarounds and luxury seating for games. BetMGM Sportsbook PA players will have access to a 50% live odds boost token during 76ers games.
Matt Prevost, BetMGM Chief Revenue Officer, said in a press release:
“This extension allows us to further enhance the gameday experience for fans, in the arena and at home. We look forward to continuing our rewarding relationship with the 76ers this season and beyond.”
As the Sixers opened their 2023-24 campaign earlier this week, Katie O’Reilly, Sixers Chief Revenue Officer, said:
“We’re joining forces again with BetMGM to promote another opportunity for fans to embrace competition, just in time for the new season. We are thrilled to build on our continued success here in the Philadelphia market and offer our unique experiences for BetMGM customers and 76ers fans alike.”
The partnership extends to MGM Resorts’ Borgata Casino and Spa along the Jersey shore. The resort will host VIP watch parties for invited guests featuring appearances by Sixers alumni, merchandise giveaways, and more.
Sixers presence on BetMGM Casino PA
Pennsylvania, and specifically Philadelphia, is known as a crazed sports state and city. BetMGM has realized that and has created exclusive online casino games to cater to diehard sports fans.
One of the biggest reasons BetMGM is such a successful online casino operator is because of the exclusive games it provides in-house. Two of those games include Philadelphia 76ers blackjack and roulette, which can only be found on BetMGM’s platform.
BetMGM’s VP of Gaming, Angus Nisbet, said back in June that having its own library of games set itself apart from the field. The operator has other sports-themed games, too. Nisbet said on the iGaming Next podcast:
“We’ve got exclusive games with the Philadelphia 76ers, doing roulette and blackjack with them. We’ve got slots for the Detroit Lions, Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Jets. We have National Hockey League slots that are now exclusively with us. That’s just what we’re doing on our own.”
It’s clear that BetMGM is cross-selling from its sportsbook into the online casino. Therefore, it’s important to have strong relationships with professional sports teams such as the Sixers.
