It hasn’t exactly been a season to remember for Pittsburgh Steelers fans, with the team sitting at 5-5-1 entering the stretch run, but now fans of the black and gold can at least see those colors whenever they want at BetMGM’s online casino.
“For BetMGM, it has been a successful first year as a gaming partner of the Steelers,” Oliver Bartlett, the director of gaming for BetMGM, said in a press release announcing the launch of the titles, which are debuting a little more than a year after the operator became the team’s first gaming partner. “As we take the next step together, BetMGM is thrilled to further foster its connection with one of the most passionate fan bases in professional sports through these additions to our market-leading portfolio of games.”
While the play of both the roulette and blackjack games is the same as any other version of the popular casino games, the ambiance surrounding each is different. Steelers Roulette, which was developed in partnership with Evolution, puts the player in a 3D-rendered Heinz Field suite, where the wheel will spin. Additionally, there’s a “go live” button that will transport the player directly to a live version of the game.
Black(jack) and gold
Steelers Blackjack, which was developed in tandem with Entain, takes place on Steelers-themed felt and allows players to place 21+3 and any pair side bets.
“We’re proud to see the continued growth of our partnership with BetMGM providing our fans with exciting opportunities throughout the year,” Ryan Huzjak, the Steelers’ vice president of sales & marketing, said in the release.
In addition to the casino games, BetMGM’s partnership with the Steelers has also included sponsoring the team’s pregame show and broadcasts, as well as taking part in digital marketing and promotions. Last season, the partnership also featured “Decade of Black & Gold,” in which one lucky fan won two club-level season tickets and two VIP passes for the next 10 years.
The games are now available at both the BetMGM and Borgata online casinos.
