Additional highlights of BetMGM Poker Championship at ARIA
For any package winners headed to Las Vegas, MGM will have lots of events to keep players busy. Aria casino will host private sportsbook parties and also host a $600 Mystery Bounty tournament on June 25 in Las Vegas.

Through our relationship with MGM Resorts and its world-class U.S. properties, we’ll continue to leverage event programming and connect with players both online and in their favorite poker rooms,” said Staudenmaier.
