The licensing agreement between BetMGM and Digital Gaming Corporation will make all of DGC’s multi-channel content available to all of the BetMGM network; the BetMGM Network also includes the Borgata Casino, Party Casino as well as BetMGM.
UK-based DGC (Digital Gaming Corporation) made its US debut in the Garden State, launching its wide selection of online slot games with Atlantic City’s biggest online casinos following its partnership with BetMGM, the joint venture between GVC Holdings and MGM Resorts International.
Following the successful integration with DGC’s RGS platform, Garden City players at BetMGM, Borgata Casino, and Party Casino can now play DGC’s diverse, premium online casino games.

iGaming Grows in New Jersey
One benefit of the COVID-19 shutdowns of Atlantic City’s casinos, is that it drove the city’s gamblers online, driving the growth of both online casinos and sportsbooks.
In August alone, online casinos raked in $84,737,965, setting a new record for the Garden State. Moreover, the gains came almost entirely from the Borgata online casino, which made less than $14.5 million in July to more than $19 million in August. The dominance of the Borgata online casino bodes well for DGC’s slot games.
The brick-and-mortar casinos in Atlantic City may not be back to where they were was last year, but while the economic recovery is underway, the online casinos are making up some of the difference.
In fact, the boom in online gaming has nearly made up for the shortfall. While July’s total gaming revenue in New Jersey was down 33% year-on-year, that deficit fell to 7.5% in August, thanks to iGaming.
Online Gaming is the Future Worldwide
Online casinos not only helped to keep New Jersey’s gaming industry afloat during the COVID-19 lockdowns, iGaming helped to maintain every jurisdiction which allows it.
Many states across the US are beginning to legalize both iGaming and sports betting, which means that those that have better managed to weather the economic downturn triggered by the pandemic.
From Atlantic City to Macao, online casinos helped not only keep some revenue flowing to the land-based casinos, but it also helped to keep gaming taxes flowing to local governments.
The shift to online gambling as a result of the COVID-19 shutdowns has hugely benefited the companies that offer online casinos, poker, lottery games, and bingo in the United States, Europe, and Asia.
