BetMGM adds a blast from the past to its expanding New Jersey portfolio
If you’ve heard of space invaders, then you’re definitely old enough to gamble online in New Jersey. If not, then you’ll still want to read on to find out why this nostalgic past-time is causing a scene across the Garden State’s online gambling market.
The 23rd February 2022 saw a BetMGM press release notify its Garden State casino enthusiasts that the legendary arcade game would soon be available to those making use of its mobile and online casino. TAITO’s legendary arcade game has clearly stood the test of time and has since been developed by Inspired, allowing the classic game to move freely into the modern era and transform itself into a phenomenal online slot game.
BetMGM’s partnership with Inspired ensures that the popular online operator holds exclusive rights to the Space Invaders slot game for one month in each state that it is released. Currently, Space Invaders is exclusively available to play at all of BetMGM’s online casinos that feature on this list of legal gambling sites in New Jersey.
- BetMGM online casino
- Borgata online casino
- Party Casino
Although other variations of the slot look set to be released further down the line, the BetMGM Space Invaders slot available to those residing in New Jersey is a 5×3 reeler with 20-win lines. Claire Osborne, the Vice President of Inspired describes the slot as a “fun and exciting slot that features vibrant, nostalgic graphics, enhanced game modifiers, six bonus rounds, a bonus gamble and more, to give players a chance at winning big bonuses and mystery cash prizes”.
Retro vibes run throughout the Space Invaders slot game, featuring classic low-resolution symbols including rockets, spaceships, invaders, and the Space Invaders logo itself. Just like many other popular titles that feature across BetMGM’s online casino library, three scatter symbols will trigger a Space Invaders bonus wheel. When triggering the bonus wheel playing Space Invaders, players can expect to unlock one of five bonus rounds, boosting their winnings as they go.
Unfortunately, the Return to Player (RTP) percentage is currently set at a sub-par 95%. A percentage that is lower than the average RTP we have come to expect from other popular BetMGM gaming titles. However, alongside the reel wins and bonus wheel, Space Invaders also offers players the chance to win big with the help of six bonus features.
The Space Invaders slot looks set to join the ever-expanding portfolio of BetMGM at a particularly busy and profitable time. Earlier in the month, BetMGM released new blackjack and roulette games inspired by the 76ers, soon after the shock James Harden-Ben Simmon trade. The table game is no doubt aimed at enticing those who are fans of wagering on the NBA across to the wonderful world of online roulette and blackjack at BetMGM, Borgata, and Party Casino.
Naturally, it is also worth mentioning that BetMGM is still running their sizable sign-up bonus – a 100% deposit match up to $1,000 – that is eligible for use across all online casino slot titles. The same new customer deposit bonus is also available to those who opt to join Borgata online casino or the Party Casino. So, for any new bettors hoping for a bonus boost that can be used on a blast from the past, you know where to go!
