BetMGM & White Hat Announce Content Agreement to Continue US Push

Online slots players with an affinity for reprobate teddy bears and TV game shows may welcome the new partnership between BetMGM, one of America’s top real money online casino operators, with White Hat Gaming and its newly created division White Hat Studios.

The arrangement between BetMGM and Malta-based White Hat means that BetMGM players will have access to some of the most popular online slots games, including Ted (based on the Seth MacFarlane-voiced animated teddy bear with a taste for booze) and Deal or No Deal, which evokes the popular game show that was hosted by comedian Howie Mandel, according to a news release.

The White Hat Studios suite of slots games, plus RNG (random number generator) table games will be available to BetMGM customers in New Jersey, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. Only a handful of U.S. states have legalized online casino play and BetMGM is in the most populous of those states.

Popular Slots Games Available

Along with Ted and Deal or No Deal, among other online slots titles that come with the White Hat partnership is Thriller Gorilla. Also, on its website, White Hat advertises a Beavis and Butt-Head game, an adult cartoon about ne’er-do-well teenagers.

“We are delighted at the incredibly positive and enthusiastic response from BetMGM to this new venture. We are moving at record pace and are excited to sign with the iGaming market leader so quickly,” Andy Whitworth, White Hat Studios CEO, said in a news release. “We look forward to seeing this best-in-class content live shortly across BetMGM sites.”

For its part, BetMGM is happy to add online casino games that have already proved their popularity overseas.

“BetMGM is thrilled to be the first operator to launch content from one of the top European suppliers to online casino players in the U.S.,” Oliver Bartlett, BetMGM’s director of gaming, said in the release. “We look forward to adding White Hat Studios top titles such as Ted, Deal or No Deal and Thriller Gorilla to what is already the strongest gaming portfolio in the industry.”

White Hat Making Moves

In July, White Hat announced that it had made an asset purchase of Blueprint Gaming’s catalogue of games with an eye on America.

And just last week, FanDuel and White Hat Studios announced an agreement expanding the catalog of games, including online slots, poker and more, at FanDuel Casino, including some short-term exclusive games.

In addition to FanDuel Casino, the deal also brings more options to Stardust Casino, PokerStars and Mohegan Sun Casino.
