Thank you last week James Harden–Ben Simmons trade, the Philadelphia 76ers are a hot topic. As Simmons and Harden prepare to outfit their new teams, BetMGM has launched Sixers Blackjack and Roulette.
However, this does not mean that the NBA MVP candidate Joel Embid will be spending his days off at a BetMGM live dealer studio asking NJ online casino players to hit a soft 17. Although that’s kind of fun. By the way, Embiid’s odds of winning NBA MVP are +550 to BetMGM Sports Betting.
That’s a topic for after the NBA All-Star break.
BetMGM, which is an official gaming partner of the 76ers, shared details of the branded table games via a press release.
Garden State players will find Sixers blackjack and roulette on the BetMGM, Borgata and Party apps. Pennsylvania players also have access through Borgata and BetMGM online casinos.

What We Know About Sixers Blackjack and Roulette
76ers Roulette features realistic animations, additional neighboring section bets and a comprehensive results interface. 76ers Blackjack is designed with up to five seats and includes popular side bets. Evolution, BetMGM’s partner live dealer, developed both titles. And get this – players sit in a three-dimensional suite at the Sixers arena.
Additionally, NJ online players can choose the “Go Live” option. After selecting this option, players are taken out of the suite, onto hardwood, and straight into the live version of the game.
The tables at BetMGM online casino are even designed in the colors of the Sixers team.
“We are proud to expand our partnership with the 76ers, a historic NBA franchise, through the introduction of these brand new roulette and blackjack games,” said Olivier Bartlett, Director of Games, BetMGM. “These games are great additions to BetMGM’s ever-growing casino offering in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.”
BetMGM-Borgata partnership continues to set records
The Sixers’ blackjack and roulette rollout is just part of BetMGM’s big week. State regulators released January revenue totals on Wednesday afternoon, and it was another record month.
All nine licensees reported $137.8 million. And guess which licensee dominated the market?
It would be Borgata with $39.1 million. BetMGM, Borgata and Party online casinos all contributed. Suddenly the idea of BetMGM/Borgata producing the first month of $40 million in New Jersey, the history of online gambling sounds like a very real possibility.
However, we may not see it until March. On the one hand, February has only 28 days against 31 for January. Second, if we look at total 2021 revenue, the second month of the year was the only month in which NJ internet gambling revenue did not exceed $100 million.
As with blackjack and Sixers roulette, it’s a numbers game.
