There will be some new games on the BetMGM online casino in West Virginia soon. Aristocrat online slot games such as Miss Kitty, Wild Wild Samurai, and 5 Dragons Rising Jackpot will soon make their way to the West Virginia online casino app.

BetMGM announced a partnership with Anaxi, a wing of the Aristocrat online gambling development company, to provide new, dynamic content for the BetMGM WV online casino. Cath Burns, executive vice president of Anaxi, said in a news release announcing the deal:

“We are thrilled to be collaborating with BetMGM as Anaxi reimagines the world’s greatest gaming content online. This is the first content release for Anaxi, and we look forward to continuing to innovate and create online gaming experiences that entertain for our partners and players.”

BetMGM West Virginia online casino first to get new Anaxi slot games

BetMGM launched in West Virginia in 2020 at The Greenbrier. And in January, it held the top spot in West Virginia in terms of handle and revenue ($150.3 million) through its BetMGM and FanDuel Casino West Virginia apps.

Operators are constantly updating games and adding new ones to spark interest in players. BetMGM wants new inventory, and connecting with an online gambling developer like Anaxi is one way to get that.

“We are honored to be the first operator in North America to offer Anaxi’s world-class content,” said Matt Prevost, chief revenue officer, BetMGM. “Partnering with Anaxi to provide some of Aristocrat’s most iconic games supports our goal of making BetMGM online casino the best destination for players.”

There is no timetable for when the new Anaxi games will be available for West Virginia players. But because of the deal, BetMGM will be the sole place where new Anaxi slot games debut.

The new world of online slots

If you’ve played an online slot game recently, you know that the games are more elaborate than ever. They now feature pulsating music, multiple ways to win, and unique symbols that keep rolling.

Players can unlock cut scenes in some games that have movie or television tie-ins. These cut scenes can help players win multipliers to enhance their payouts.

According to the Anaxi website:

  • Miss Kitty features a ferocious feline and scattered moon bonus symbols for players.
  • 5 Dragons Rising has an Asian art theme, featuring fish, turtles, and dragons that come to life with emerging combinations.
  • Wild Wild Samurai offers plays up to a 9x multiplier.

Anaxi is a wing of Aristocrat, which promises cutting-edge design and technology for online games. In February of 2022, Aristocrat combined its Real Money Gaming & Customer Experience Solutions into Anaxi.
