Golden Nugget Casino gets approval to launch Live Dealer products in Michigan

Golden Nugget Casino has rolled out its line of online live dealer offerings in the Wolverine State following the green light from the Michigan Gaming Control Board.

Michigan Online Casino: Golden Nugget Debuts Live Dealer

The Deal – The launch of its online live dealer segment spells good news for Golden Nuggets Casino’s Michigan-based customers, as they can now wager on their favorite live dealer game at the comfort of their homes via mobile devices. 

The Product – Golden Nuggets Casino has now granted its customers in the region access to its live dealer products such as Baccarat, Roulette, and Blackjack.

GNOG has tapped the service of B2B solution provider Evolution to provide technical support for the online live dealer games. Through this partnership, the operator assures its products can simulate the same gaming experience players usually get in land-based casinos. In an online set-up, players can still drop real-money bets against other players and real dealers.

The Objectives – The live dealer segment enters the fray just months after Golden Nugget debuts its online casino and sports betting product in Michigan last January. A new era in Michigan’s online casino and sports betting ecosystem has taken place after GNOG collaborated with the Ojibwa Casino & the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community. 

GNOG executives feel optimistic about the future of its online casino in Michigan despite an underwhelming performance from the region’s iGaming sector last June.  

According to Play Michigan, the online casino and poker revenue took a significant dive from May as more people “spend less time indoors.” The relaxing of restrictions on mass gatherings resulting from state-wide vaccination against COVID-19 apparently halted the momentum the online casino sector has built on over the last few months. 

The state recorded a 5.9 percent decrease in online casino and poker room revenues, down from $94.9m to $89.2m, over the 30 days of June. The said sectors also generated $3m per day, a slight decrease from $3.1m per day in May, accounting for $13.7m in state taxes and $5m in local taxes.

Quotes from the Press Release

Thomas Winter, GNOG president, stated: “We were the first to bring live dealers to New Jersey and are excited to expand into Michigan. We invite all online players to try this new and exciting online live gaming experience.”
