BetMGM has an estimated 29% national online casino market share in its four states of operation: New Jersey, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. In 2022, BetMGM awarded over $104 million in progressive jackpot payouts to online casino players. 

Earlier this month, sports betting and gaming group Entain reported a 15% increase in net gaming revenue (NGR) for the first quarter of 2023, compared to 12% for the whole of last year. Strong growth within the BetMGM business helped to push net gaming revenue up during the quarter, while the group also reported growth across all other segments.

According to the report, BetMGM grew NGR 76%, with a 28% iGaming market share and a 17% share in sports betting and iGaming markets where it operates. BetMGM’s NGR was up 94% to approximately $470 million, in line with guidance of between $1.80 billion and $2.00 billion in revenue for the full year.
