Rush Street Interactive (RSI) is the latest to launch its live casino games in Michigan.
On Friday, RSI announced it had received authorization from the Michigan Gaming Control Board to release MI online casino live dealer games on its BetRivers.com website.
Players are now eligible to play numerous table games from their phones or other mobile devices on the BetRivers.com platform.
"Many online players prefer and trust live dealer options because they can watch the action as it happens," said Richard Schwartz, president of RSI in a media release. "A live dealer game is as close as you can get online to playing in a land-based casino and we're thrilled to be among the first to offer Michigan residents the opportunity to sit and play on Evolution's world-renowned virtual live dealer casino tables."
BetRivers.com’s MI online casino games are powered by Evolution Gaming, one of the more well-known live dealer table games providers. On BetRivers.com, players can enjoy a mix of live tables with both high and low-stakes blackjack games, roulette and baccarat.
Live casino games are run live and payouts are circulated in real-time, giving players online or on their mobile devices the realistic feeling as if they are sitting in a real casino while in the comfort of their home or anywhere else in Michigan.
BetRivers in Michigan
RSI gained market access to Michigan through its partnership with the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians. The tribe operates the Little River Casino Resort in Manistee.
BetRivers is one of 11 other operators who are attempting to gain more of the gaming market share after the big three of FanDuel, BetMGM and DraftKings. In June, those three combined for over $62 million of the total $89 million in online casino revenue in the state.
BetRivers recorded $6 million in revenue for June. Since March, the $6 million mark has been consistent for BetRivers when it recorded its month-high of $6.7 million. Since then, BetRivers has seen slight decreases in revenue while still hovering around the $6 million mark.
