Michigan poker players have been enjoying online poker games since Jan 2021 when PokerStars launched its poker room. PokerStars Michigan has enjoyed great success during the last couple of months as had a monopoly over the Michigan poker market. That monopoly has now come to an end with the launch of BetMGM Poker.
BetMGM Poker Open To Michigan Players
BetMGM teamed up with partypoker to launch online poker services this week. This launch makes the BetMGM gaming offering complete as BetMGM had earlier launched its sportsbook and online casino. This is the second state where BetMGM is launching its online poker offering, the other state being New Jersey.
BetMGM has rolled out both tournaments and cash games for Michigan players. Similar to its offering in New Jersey, BetMGM Michigan will offer players over 70 daily tournaments with some impressive prize pools. One of the tournaments that you need to watch out for is the $12,000 GTD Mega Tuesday 6-Max that takes place each Tuesday at 8 pm EST and has a buy-in of $535.
Only players physically located in the Wolverine state will be allowed to access the BetMGM poker offering. BetMGM will use geo-location facilities to prevent players from out of state accessing the poker room. If a poker player uses a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to access the poker client and wins, BetMGM reserves the right to not pay out the winnings for violating terms and conditions.
BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt said that the operator was happy to roll out its online poker client on the heels of its online casino and sports betting offering. Given the success of online casino and sports betting in Michigan, BetMGM is confident that its poker offering will also get a good response.
Special Bonuses For New Players
BetMGM knows that it has only one market competition for now in PokerStars. However, PokerStars is the biggest online poker room in the world and it will be up to BetMGM to quickly make a strong impression in the market. BetMGM is looking to do that right away by offering new players an attractive welcome bonus upon registration.
New players that sign-up with BetMGM will receive a welcome bonus of $25 and can claim a 100 percent match deposit bonus of up to $600. All new players at BetMGM will also receive a special invitation to a $50,000 Freeroll Invitational Tournament that is set to take place on April 4.
BetMGM Poker Mobile App
BetMGM has also launched a mobile poker app for Michigan players that can be downloaded for free. Poker players in Michigan, who like playing their favorite poker games while on the go, will enjoy this easy to use mobile poker app.
The new mobile poker app has different poker variants that rotate, offers both poker cash games and tournaments. Mobile poker players will have different options when it comes to buy-ins as BetMGM is looking to host events that cater to low stakes, mid-stakes and high stakes players.
If you have already signed up for a BetMGM account and have started playing online casino games or placing sports bets, then you can use the same account to start your mobile poker experience. The mobile poker app has an easy to use interface and also makes it easy for players to deposit funds and withdraw their winnings.
Poker players in Michigan will only be able to play against each other for now as Michigan does not offer inter-state liquidity. However, poker operators like BetMGM are confident that Michigan will soon allow inter-state liquidity and allow them to link up with other markets like New Jersey.
MGM Rewards
BetMGM poker players will have the option to integrate their play into the M life Rewards program and will be able to redeem their points at all MGM properties which include MGM Grand Detroit.
