MGM Resorts' (MGM) BetMGM Collaborates With Everi Holdings

MGM Resorts International’s MGM BetMGM recently collaborated with Everi Digital (online gaming division of Everi Holdings) and launched a custom-themed game — Borgata 777 Respin.

Everi develops entertaining game content and gaming machines, gaming systems as well as services for land-based and iGaming operators. With this collaboration, the company intends to boost its online gaming offerings through video slot enhancements and progressive jackpot contents.

Delivered through Everi's proprietary Spark Remote Game Server, the game offers a re-spin bonus that triggers randomly on any winning spin and each re-spin awards prizes equal to or more valuable than the previous re-spin. Also, it offers players with 10x, 5x and 3x multipliers to gain chances for wins through wild Borgata symbols. The company stated that the game will be available through BetMGM Casino, Borgata Casino and Party Casino in New Jersey as well as BetMGM Casino and Borgata Casino in Pennsylvania.

With respect to the launch, Oliver Bartlett, BetMGM's director of Online Gaming, stated "BetMGM continues to leverage its strong themes and iconic brands to build the most robust online gaming portfolio and we're thrilled to provide players with another exciting gaming option."

Tech IPOs With Massive Profit Potential

In the past few years, many popular platforms and like Uber and Airbnb finally made their way to the public markets. But the biggest paydays came from lesser-known names.

For example, electric carmaker X Peng shot up +299.4% in just 2 months. Think of it this way…

If you had put $5,000 into XPEV at its IPO in September 2020, you could have cashed out with $19,970 in November.

With record amounts of cash flooding into IPOs and a record-setting stock market, this year’s lineup could be even more lucrative.
