BetMGM Poker focuses efforts on improving player experience

Each month since launching in April 2021 BetMGM has been focusing on improving its online series. BetMGM regularly talks to pros such as Darren Elias and reaches out to the local poker communities online.

“I know they now have a representative in popular discord groups—trying to get feedback on how they can improve,” said PA online pro Justin Lett of Philadelphia. “That’s a step in the right direction.”

One thing that players enjoy and have asked for more of is the popular Progressive Knockout (PKO) tournaments.

Half the tournaments in the upcoming series will be progressive knockout events. PKOs are a special type of bounty tournament. When a player eliminates an opponent, that player cashes in 50% of the opponent’s bounty. Those funds go directly into the winning player’s own account.

The other half of that opponent’s bounty is added to the bounty on the winning player’s head. Every knockout the player wins, the larger the bounty that is on their head.

Besides these bounty events, BetMGM will also offer turbos and short-handed events. Some stand-out events in the Pennsylvania series include:

  • $215 NLHE Re-Entry (Event 5A, Jan.23) – $30,000 guaranteed
  • $535 NLHE Eight-Max PKO (Event 9A, Jan. 25) – $15,000 guaranteed
  • $50 Pot Limit Omaha PKO Bounty (Event 10B, Jan. 25) – $5,000 guaranteed
