Chicago-based ODDSworks, Inc., announced Wednesday that it has partnered with BetMGM to deliver its proprietary and third-party online gambling sites content through their BETguard Remote Gaming Server (RGS) platform in Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.
ODDSworks aims to specialize in world-class gaming content and best-in-class interactive technologies for regulated and real money gaming markets. With only six U.S. states allowing iGaming, the company sees a tremendous amount of potential in the future waiting to be capitalized on.
"We are pleased to be partnering to provide our unique, proven game content via the versatile BETguard platform to BetMGM," ODDSworks President Larry DeMar said in a news release. "We look forward to working with BetMGM and to grow our respective operations."
The BETguard RGS platform processes over $2 billion annually in wagering on popular gaming options including online blackjack and other card games. It will power the ODDSworks games as they expand with each new market. ODDSworks is integrating with all major online casinos and provides their unique, market-proven game library to operators.
The BetMGM announcement follows a partnership between ODDSworks and Las Vegas-based Eurostar Studios West. Under the partnership with Eurostar Studios West, the company will provide slot games for operators in North America using ODDSworks’ BETguard RGS.
“We look forward to partnering with ODDSworks to bring our never-before-seen mechanics and next-level creativity to key operators in North America,” said Jerry Seelig, Eurostar Studios’ chief gaming officer.
BetMGM Casino operates in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Michigan.
In May, ODDSworks strengthened its BETguard RGS after forming an alliance with Malta-based GameArt.
Under the terms of the GameArt deal, games from the slot supplier’s suite of iGaming titles, such as Rosh Immortality Cube Megaways, Piggy Bjorn-Muspelheim’s Treasure, Wolf Hunt, Lucky Coins, and Fortune Tiger HyperWays, will become accessible to the ODDSworks platform.
ODDSworks received its Interactive Gaming Manufacturer License from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board in April. Pennsylvania gaming was the fourth jurisdiction approval for ODDSworks. The company is currently licensed in Michigan, New Jersey and West Virginia. Connecticut and Ontario are in the approval process.
ODDSworks partnered with Rush Street Interactive, Inc. to deploy its BETguard RGS content in Michigan.
The company provides content from land-based casinos in the U.S. and online casinos in Europe to online casinos in the United States.
iGaming platforms in Connecticut, Delaware, Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia generated $1.21 billion in the second quarter of 2022 (April 1 through June 30), gaining 34.3% year-over-year and inching $3 million (0.2%) ahead of the previous record set in the first quarter of 2022, according to the American Gaming Association's Commercial Gaming Revenue Tracker.
Six iGaming markets were live this quarter compared to five in 2021 (excluding Nevada online poker).
