BetMGM Poker Championship Back at Aria in June


The BetMGM online poker and sports betting platform continues finding some synergy with some of the company’s casino properties. That continues this summer in Las Vegas with the return of the BetMGM Poker Championship at the Aria for the second year. The tournament is set for June 9-13 in the poker room, with the final table streamed live from PokerGO Studio.

The championship features a $3,500 buy-in with a $2 million guarantee. Players will find two starting flights with at least 100 qualifiers coming from BetMGM Poker markets in New Jersey, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Ontario, Canada. Qualifying events got underway on May 1.

“It’s great to bring BetMGM players back to Las Vegas during one of poker’s most exciting times of the year.” BetMGM Director of Poker Luke Staudenmaier said. “For a second straight year, Aria is delivering a Championship event and we are happy to continue to build on our relationship with MGM Resorts, while connecting BetMGM online players to the best poker rooms in the U.S.”

The tournament  is part of the Aria Poker Classic, which begins with an $800 Mystery Bounty event on June 8. Online qualifiers will win packages that include the championship tournament buy-in, Mystery Bounty buy-in, travel expenses, and a six-night Aria stay from June 7-13.

“Partnering with BetMGM for another summer championship is a tremendous opportunity for us to offer poker players a one-of-a-kind experience,” MGM Resorts Director of Poker Strategy Sean McCormack said. “Aria has doubled the guarantee from last year to $2 million, giving the competitors the chance to win one of our industry’s top prize pools.”
