BetMGM - Legal website in the U.S.
BetMGM Online Casino
There is something new in Michigan, Starting on February 1, 2021, Michigan gamblers were given access to online casino gambling through licensed providers. One of those providers in BetMGM Michigan.
BetMGM Michigan is owned by the joint venture partnership of MGM Resorts and GVC Holdings.
The actual online casino website looks like a generic version of so many other online casinos in operation all over the world. While the website is functional and fairly easy to navigate, there doesn't appear to be much substance here. The website layout features banner advertising across the top, promotion of popular casino games in the middle, and administrative information at the bottom. For equal opportunity gamblers, there is a direct link to the BetMGM Michigan sportsbook on the home landing page.
Software Platform and Games
The BetMGM casino is tied together with a proprietary software platform that features approximately 120 online casino games from software developers like NetEnt, IGT, Konami, Barcrest, and SG Interactive. Of these software developers, only Netent ranks as a top developer. Unfortunately, many of Netent's top video slots are not currently part of the BetMGM Library.
With that said, online slot players might enjoy playing games like Narcos, DaVinci Diamonds, Starburst, Gonzo's Quest, Meltdown, Raging Rhino, King Kong Fury, Dead or Alive, Guns N Roses, Jumanji, and Blood Suckers.
Admittedly, the selection of table games is rather small. The list includes several versions of Blackjack and Roulette, plus games like Let it Ride and Baccarat. Currently, the BetMGM casino does not include live dealer games. However, they have contracted with Evolution Gaming for said games in the future.
Bonuses and Promotions
BetMGM Casino does offer a decent slate of casino related bonus offers. The welcome offer features a "no deposit required" gift, plus a 100% matching bonus of up to $1,000 based on the customer's first real cash deposit.
The casino does offer a five-tiered VIP program that allows customers to accumulate points for cash rebates and other benefits.
Banking and Customer Service
The number of banking options is limited, but the list does include VISA, MasterCard, VIP Preferred, PayPal, and online banking. Withdrawals are fairly restrictive. Customer service is available via live chat, email, and phone.
Verdict: Right out of the gate, the BetMGM Michigan online casino seems rushed and thrown together as though the sportsbook was the real objective. Over time, customers can expect improvements like the addition of like dealer games.
