BetMGM Casino launched in Michigan in January 2021, offering players a trusted brand and a full range of slots, table games and video poker, in addition to its online sportsbook and upcoming online poker platform.
BetMGM, a joint venture of industry giant MGM Resorts and Entain (formerly GVC Holdings), continues to expand its national digital footprint as more states legalize online gambling. The BetMGM name is particularly well known in Michigan — licensing partner MGM Grand Detroit was the first commercial casino to open in the state — and is the state’s top-performing online casino in total revenue.
Michigan gamblers have access to a full spectrum of betting options on BetMGM's mobile app and website — not to mention an array of generous bonus offers for both new online casino and sports betting users.
Pros: Generous bonus offers, great game selection, history of top-level gaming; Cons: Lack of demo mode to test games.
BetMGM Casino Michigan offers online players two bonus offers. New sign-ups receive a 100% deposit match of up to $1,000 on their initial deposit, a higher dollar match than most other Michigan online casino offer. The deposit match has a 15x bonus release requirement. The welcome bonus also includes $25 in free play, which is automatically added to your account after sign-up. The $25 welcome bonus has a 1x wagering requirement. All BetMGM bonus money must be wagered within 30 days after the account is created.
No BetMGM bonus code MI is required to be entered to claim the online casino bonus, but that’s not always the case. You can find our exclusive bonus codes on GreatLakeStakes.com.
