Evolution Michigan Stuido

Michigan’s iGaming industry has only been live since January of this year, and it has already proven that it is a force to be reckoned with. Michigan is consistently neck-and-neck or tied with New Jersey (a state where online casinos have been live since 2013) and is on track to outpace the Garden State by year’s end. 

So it’s no surprise to see Evolution quickly launching their popular live casino platform in the state. The gaming behemoth launched its third live casino in Michigan two weeks ago. 

In a press release, Commercial Director North America for Evolution, Jeff Millar stated, “This is another major landmark in Evolution’s US growth. We are fully committed to the new Michigan market – we launched games from our NetEnt brand with all operators in Michigan at the market opening in January, and we have now become the first provider to launch live casinos in Michigan. We are delighted to have created such close partnerships with operators in Michigan and will continue to extend our content offering for this state with further exciting launches over the coming months. Our aim is simple: to excite and entertain players with.”

Millar added: “Our new Michigan studio is one of the biggest and best equipped in the US iGaming market, with room to expand in line with our licensees’ needs. Operators have been greatly impressed with what’s on offer, so much so that we also have several requests to launch dedicated, exclusively branded tables for a number of them, scheduled for later this year.”

What Can MI Players Expect from Evolution?

The new Michigan live casino studio provides “a state-of-the-art B2B live casino solution for multiple operators wishing to offer world-class live casino gaming to online players on desktop, tablet and smartphone”. Nine gaming operators went live on day one of the launch, including Barstool Sports, BetMGM, BetRivers, DraftKings, FanDuel, Golden Nugget, PokerStars, TwinSpires, and William Hill. More casinos are slated to follow later this year. 

As far as games go, “Evolution-powered live table games such as Infinite Blackjack, standard Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette and Auto Roulette are now being live-streamed to operators’ players in Michigan. Further live casino games and game shows are expected to be added to the Evolution Michigan offering.”
