Michigan live casino players can now take advantage of branded tables, more games, and possibly soon new live dealer providers
The game of live dealer blackjack will remain the same, but now players at these casinos have less waiting time before playing, since the branded tables are dedicated to them.
Also, the live chat function will offer an improved experience, since until now players could not see interactions between the dealer and players from other casinos.
The tables opened at 11AM on Tuesday, with most casinos filling their dedicated tables within minutes. That shows that these casinos may have to offer more branded tables soon, as well as demonstrating the popularity of the live dealer experience in Michigan.
Which MI casinos have branded tables currently?
Branded Evolution blackjack tables are available in the following MI online casinos:
All bets are currently set a minimum of $30, with a $10,000 max limit at DraftKings.
What live dealer games could be next on the cards?
According to sources, live roulette will be the next game to receive the branded table experience. We also hope that dedicated tables will soon be available for live dealer poker and live baccarat. Already we see the various live poker variants (Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em, Casino Hold ‘Em) enjoy dedicated tables in New Jersey, and we feel it’s just a matter of time before MI casinos adopt these branded titles for the benefit of Michiganders.
Will new live dealer providers soon challenge the Evolution monopoly in Michigan?
The short answer is yes. Both Scientific Gaming (SG) and Playtech could soon join the MI market and challenge the monopoly that Evolution currently enjoys. In fact, Playtech is in the process of setting up a studio, also in Southfield. And SG recently purchased European live dealer provider Authentic Gaming, with rumors that a plan to extend their offering to the US.
The growth spurt in online casino activity in Michigan has been boosted since the live dealer niche became a reality in July
July 22nd first saw the introduction of live casino games to the Great Lake state, and it is surely no coincidence that the state immediately saw record growth in online casino gambling in both August and September. Given the fast take-up of the branded blackjack tables on Tuesday morning, it looks like we could be seeing another record month in November.
