BetMGM Casino launched its Michigan live dealer offering in July 2021 and currently holds 39% market share in the state. Today’s opening of the new studio allows players to interact with a live dealer and other players at blackjack, roulette, and baccarat tables of varying price points.
“This beautiful, new studio enhances BetMGM’s live casino experience in Michigan and deepens our partnership with Evolution,” said Oliver Bartlett, Director of Gaming, BetMGM. “Inspired by the MGM Resorts brand, the studio is adorned with the iconic golden lion and the familiar black and gold BetMGM color scheme. We’re confident that it will amplify our market-leading casino offering in Michigan.”
“We’re thrilled that BetMGM has again entrusted Evolution with providing a full dedicated studio solution, powered by our technology,” said Jeff Millar, Commercial Director North America, Evolution. “As we set out to create a unique feel that players would love, the BetMGM studio in Michigan is one of the grandest we’ve built. We’re excited to continue our work within the state of Michigan, while strengthening our ongoing partnership with BetMGM.”
