In New Jersey, the BetMGM brand operates under the Borgata online gaming license and shares player pools with both Borgata Poker and partypoker.
BetMGM Poker debuted in Michigan in March 2021, becoming just the second online poker operator in the state.
On April 29, 2021, BetMGM Poker (and sister site Borgata Poker) officially went live in the state of Pennsylvania. The launch of BetMGM Poker marked just the second operator to go live in the Keystone State, ending the market monopoly held by PokerStars since they went live in 2019.
Currently, there is not interstate online player sharing in Michigan or Pennsylvania which means that for the time being residents of both states play only against other players located inside their respective states. However, it is expected that Michigan will eventually sign on for interstate play and allow BetMGM players to join other partypoker US Network players in New Jersey (and potentially other states that, in the future, allow for interstate play).
While it may take a little longer it is anticipated that eventually Pennsylvania will also join a multi-state compact.

About BetMGM Poker
MGM Resorts International was founded in 1987 under the name of MGM Grand Inc and opened the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in December 1993 for a total cost of $1 Billion. MGM has since expanded to seven other states, including ten casinos in Las Vegas and several in China.
In 1999, casino mogul Steve Wynn began a $330 million “Tunnel Project” that would connect the Atlantic City Expressway to a new casino that he was building called “Le Jardin.” Le Jardin was scrapped after Donald Trump sued Wynn, stating that his tunnel project was nothing but a direct pathway to his new casino.
Despite Le Jardin being scrapped, the tunnel project carried on. MGM and Boyd Gaming teamed up to build The Borgata that we know today. The Borgata Hotel and Casino opened its doors in July 2003. Just 2 years later, The Borgata underwent a $200 million expansion and later in 2008, opened a second tower hotel called The Water Club.
In 2016, MGM bought Boyd Gaming’s 50% ownership and became sole owners of The Borgata. Today, The Borgata is home to 161,000 square feet of gaming floor, 4000 slots, 180 table games, and the biggest poker room in New Jersey, featuring over 85 tables.
BetMGM Poker offers daily tournaments ranging from freerolls, satellites, and buy-ins from $0.10 up to $535. Some of the featured tournaments are:
|Daily $10,000 Guarantee||Daily||$109||$10,000|
|Mega Tuesday 6-max||Tuesdays||$535||$12,000|
|Sunday $35,000 Guarantee||Sundays||$215||$35,000|
There are cash games running 24/7 ranging from blinds of $0.01/0.02 up to $25/$50. Poker game varieties include No Limit Texas Hold’em, Limit Texas Hold’em, Pot Limit Omaha, and Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo.
Sit and Gos
Sit & Gos run 24/7 with buy-in ranging from $1 up to $500. Sit & Gos are mostly No Limit Texas Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha and can be played as Hyper turbo, Turbo or with standard blind structures.
The iRewards program is a 5 tier level system, where the higher the tier, the better the perks. The more you play each year, the more iRPs you earn, the higher tier you achieve. The higher tier levels lead to perks that can be redeemed for Express Comps at live MGM casinos. This includes bonus dollars that can be redeemed as cash or online poker tournament entries. They can also be redeemed for electronics, accessories, or other online store items.
|IRewards Tier||Tier Credits Required Per Year|
|Noir||By invitation only|
BetMGM Poker awards 5.5 iRPs per $1 contributed to rake in cash games or tournament fees. For Example, if you played in a $55 ($50 tournament entry+$5 tournament fee) you would earn 27.5 iRPs.
