The 2024 EGR Awards show was recently held in New York City to announce the winners of the most coveted gaming honors in the industry and BetMGM took home the hardware in two premier categories.

BetMGM Gets Its Flowers

EGaming Review, commonly referred to as EGR held its annual awards show on June 27th at the Midtown Loft & Terrace in New York City. According to the organization, the awards show’s mission focuses on “celebrating the most successful and innovative online gaming companies across North America.”

All the major players in the online sports betting and iGaming market were present, but it was BetMGM that copped two of the most prestigious honors, including the Sports Betting Operator of the Year and Employer of the Year. The former award was presented to BetMGM due to its innovative approach to aligning with non-traditional sports betting partners like X and Marriot Bonvoy. It was also lauded for amplifying its betting offerings after its parent company, Entain, acquired Angstrom, a sports forecasting, pricing, and data analytics firm last year.

BetMGM was also named the industry’s Employer of the Year due to its emphasis on improving employee performance through more vigorous training programs while implementing diversity and inclusion learning and fostering career education and opportunities. It was also lauded for motivating its workforce and retaining premier talent to continue the company’s upward trajectory.

“Winning two EGR North America Awards is a tremendous honor,” said Adam Greenblatt, Chief Executive Officer, of BetMGM. “We have a passionate team at BetMGM dedicated to delivering best-in-class betting experiences which saw exponential leaps in capability this year with unparalleled omnichannel opportunities, enhanced user interface, and increased brand visibility. These awards are a tribute to all the hard work and the strong culture that we are building at BetMGM.”

What’s Next for BetMGM?

MGM Resorts CEO & President Bill Hornbuckle has touted the appeal of “MGM Live”, which will be live-streamed from the casino floors at the MGM Grand and Bellagio Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is a product that is geared toward internationally regulated iGaming markets in which the company will be actively seeking licenses in those jurisdictions.

The live casino games will initially feature single and double-zero roulette as well as baccarat games. The company has partnered with Playtech to bring the glitz and glamor of Las Vegas casino gambling to the global market outside the United States.

“The launch of this new and exciting live casino offering, in partnership with Playtech and directly from Bellagio and MGM Grand in Las Vegas, furthers our strategic vision to be the world’s premier gaming entertainment company. This collaboration amplifies our commitment to providing unparalleled experiences and expands our global reach to our customers,” said Hornbuckle. “We believe the content, celebrity talent, and sophisticated gaming experience that we will offer – all from the trusted and highly reputable brands of MGM Resorts – will be unmatched in the industry.”

Commitment to Safer Gambling

Mor Weizer, Chief Executive Officer at Playtech said; “We are thrilled to partner with MGM Resorts, a world-renowned gaming and entertainment brand. This alliance combines the strength of MGM Resorts’ global prestige with Playtech’s extensive international market knowledge and innovative games.

“Our alliance is built on a shared vision to create an innovative and unique customer experience alongside our commitment to safer gambling. Both Playtech and MGM Resorts are dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of player protection and ensuring our offerings are enjoyed responsibly,” added Weizer.
