As Michigan awaits for the official online casino gaming and mobile sports betting launch, players are getting an idea of which companies will be ready when the state goes live
The Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB) is currently in the licensing and regulatory approval process for platform providers and operators, and as licenses are granted, those providers move a step closer to being one of the first to go active when online gaming and mobile sports betting officially launch.
High 5 Games is the latest online casino provider to earn a license after the MGCB issued an online casino supplier license to the gaming company. The license will allow the provider to operate when Michigan’s online casino gaming launches. High 5 is partnered with Golden Nugget Online Casino.
“High 5 Games has been a long-standing partner of ours and has been an integral part of our success thus far in New Jersey,” Warren Steven, senior director of Golden Nugget Online Gaming, said in a media release. “We’re excited to extend our relationship to Michigan where goldennuggetcasino.com will continue to demonstrate our never-ending commitment to our players by providing them with the best online casino experience.”
Golden Nugget and High 5’s partnership is prevalent in New Jersey, where over 100 High 5 games are available at Golden Nugget’s New Jersey online casino.
In July, Golden Nugget announced a partnership with the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community, which operates the Ojibwa Casinos in Marquette and Baraga. This deal gave Golden Nugget access to the Michigan market, allowing the operator to launch an online casino and sportsbook in the state.
Golden Nugget is owned by by Tilman J. Fertitta. The online gaming company is considered one of the market leaders and was the first to introduce live dealers and live casino floors to the U.S. online gaming market.
Golden Nugget has also received numerous accolades for its products, including being named the Operator of the Year each year since 2017 by the eGaming Review North American Awards.
High 5 Games was founded in 1995 and has since continued to add to its gaming library. High 5 now has over 500 titles in its gaming collection and provides casino content for land-based, mobile, online and social markets.
The company has licenses and game certificates in jurisdictions around the world and also features its own full casino platform that has a history of entertaining players worldwide.
