Michigan live casino fans can look forward to a new era of engaging and thrilling live dealer fun. Evolution Gaming's tie-up with Golden Nugget means that the award-winning provider has entered another state in its quest for US dominance.
Michigan online casino fans can now legally play live dealer casino games through Golden Nugget’s website and mobile apps. Registered users will now find games such as live blackjack, live baccarat, and live roulette after the Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB) approved Golden Nugget’s live dealer application last Wednesday, with the online gaming platform introducing the games a day afterwards.
Live dealer titles allow players to experience the thrilling atmosphere of land-based casinos while still gaming from the comfort of their home (or on the go while using mobile devices). The live dealers add an element of social interaction to online casino games, making play more entertaining and immersive. This is a great option for those who live far away from a land-based venue, but still want to experience live casino action. Moreover, those who must isolate or have coronavirus-related concerns can still enjoy the company of professional dealers without having to visit crowded casinos.
Golden Nugget’s principal supplier of live dealer products is Evolution Gaming, which is now firmly established as the industry leader for live casino games. Players will be able to enjoy a wide array of games, with live blackjack inevitably being the most popular option. There are five different live tables offering regular blackjack, with a minimum betting amount of $30. Another popular form of blackjack is Infinite Blackjack, which can cater for many players simultaneously and allow bets as low as $1, in addition to several more lucrative side bets.
As well as blackjack, the deal allows players to access live baccarat and two versions of live roulette.
Experience from watching other markets (NJ and PA in particular), show’s it’s safe to assume that the live dealer vertical will continue to expand in Michigan, with Golden Nugget likely to introduce additional titles by the end of the year, including various live poker variants such as Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em. Moreover, many innovative live game shows by Evolution have proven to be popular around the globe, including Crazy Time, Deal or No Deal, Monopoly Live, Dream Catcher, and more. Although these titles are not initially available as part of the Golden Nugget/Evolution tie-up, they should become part of the MI online casinos landscape sooner rather than later.
Legal live dealer casino games have already proven popular in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, with players in these states already enjoying all the benefits of this relatively new type of gaming. New Jersey is currently the leader in the US online casino gambling scene, with live dealer games holding their own against the ever-popular slots in the Garden State.
