- BetMGM has launched their partypoker powered online poker platform in Michigan.
- BetMGM launched online sports betting and casino in Michigan in late January 2021.
- BetMGM is a sports betting/interactive gaming partnership between MGM Resorts and Entain PLC.
BetMGM and partners Entain PLC have announced the launch of the BetMGM poker platform in Michigan. This is the second state for BetMGM’s poker offering powered by the partypoker US network joining New Jersey. BetMGM is the sports betting and interactive gaming division of MGM Resorts (NYSE: MGM) operated in partnership with Entain PLC (LSE: ENT). For some reason, the press releases I get always come from Entain.
The new platform is integrated with BetMGM’s sports betting and casino making it a one stop shop for Michigan gaming enthusiasts. Players can manage their bankroll with a single wallet which is more convenient to be sure. BetMGM Poker features a wide assortment of poker variants, signature poker tournaments – like the popular partypoker US Network Progressive Knockout Bounty Online Series – and cash-games of all buy-in levels. It’s also tied in to MGM Resorts’ M life Rewards program.
Adam Greenblatt, Chief Executive Officer, BetMGM, is pleased to offer Michigan players a multifaceted gaming platform:
“The launch of BetMGM Poker in Michigan fully rounds out our premier gaming portfolio in the state. BetMGM’s sports betting and casino offerings have been met with incredible early success in Michigan and we’re thrilled to provide players with another exciting gaming option.”
Ray Stefanelli, Director of Poker, BetMGM, cited the strong interest in online poker from players across the state:
“The demand for online poker in Michigan was made clear by players across the state. BetMGM Poker is proud to offer them a seat at our tables and we’re confident that BetMGM Michigan customers will enjoy an engaging, reliable and fun poker experience.”
The press release from Entain PLC announcing the launch explained the combination of brands that makeup the partypokerUS Network:
partypoker US Network brings the BetMGM Poker, Borgata Poker, and partypoker US brands together to create an unmatched poker network. BetMGM Poker players in Michigan now have direct access to the brand’s player-first operational mindset and partnerships – the most recent with LearnWPT, ensuring continued player education.
To celebrate the arrival of BetMGM Poker in Michigan, new players are eligible for a $25 bonus and a 100% deposit match bonus, up to $600. All BetMGM players in the state will be invited to a $50,000 Freeroll Invitational Tournament scheduled Sunday, April 4th. Integration with MGM Resorts’ M life Rewards program also gives BetMGM players in Michigan the opportunity to redeem their gameplay for world-class experiences at MGM Resorts properties, including MGM Grand Detroit, as well as MGM Grand, Bellagio and ARIA in Las Vegas, Borgata in New Jersey, MGM National Harbor in Maryland, and Beau Rivage in Mississippi.
