MGM Resorts Planning, Real Money Poker Site

The MGM Resorts is a very popular destination for all casino and poker enthusiasts both on the ground and online.


The MGM Resorts Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has been ruling the roost as far as the Atlantic City casinos are concerned. But, with the introduction of many gaming websites, MGM Borgata could not withstand its number one position and is now pushed to the second position.

All this will change as MGM Resorts is looking to come out with a real money online casino and poker site. It is looking to regain the number one position in the Atlantic City through the playMGM service that is going to go live very soon.
