BetMGM is introducing live casino games to its Michigan gaming catalog.
On Thursday, BetMGM announced live casino games will now be included in the MI BetMGM Casino. BetMGM’s games are provided by Evolution, which is one of the top suppliers of live casino content.
“Through our partnership with Evolution and our omnichannel strategy featuring MGM Grand Detroit and first-class promotions, BetMGM is excited to deliver the top live dealer experience to Michiganders,” Matthew Sunderland, vice president of gaming for BetMGM, said in a news release. “We look forward to continuing to launch these familiar and trusted live dealer experiences in all states of operation, strengthening our position as the most dominant live gaming operator in the U.S.”
Roulette, auto roulette, baccarat, blackjack and infinite blackjack are the live games currently available to players in Michigan. In the future, BetMGM plans to add live craps, poker, game shows, more blackjack tables, in addition to a branded, live casino studio.
“Through Evolution’s new and state-of-the-art Michigan studio, we’re proud to be able to immediately provide BetMGM with a great selection of games and the best in live dealer technology,” Jeff Millar, Evolution commercial director for North America, said in a media release. “Today’s launch in this important market is a significant part of our nationwide agreement with BetMGM, as they continue to establish themselves as a leading operator offering unique players experiences across the U.S.”
BetMGM Top Online Casino in Michigan
BetMGM has established itself as the dominant MI online casino provider. Since MI online sports betting and internet casinos launched on Jan. 22, BetMGM has recorded the highest revenue numbers for each month. Cumulatively, BetMGM has reported $175.4 million in gross receipts, nearly twice as much as the next operator, FanDuel, who is at $89 million.
BetMGM’s $175.4 million makes up 36% of the total online casino market share since the state’s launch. The company credits its online casino success to its live offerings, which have grown 500% year-over-year, in addition to its gaming portfolio, proprietary technology and the largest real money jackpot network in the United States.
Overall, BetMGM has become the top casino operator in the nation with an estimated 28% national market share in the four states it is in operation.
