On Monday evening, BetMGM launched an online poker room in Michigan, becoming the second operator to offer services in the state. The gaming software can be downloaded through the platform and played via the BetMGM Poker MI application. The operator now offers online poker gaming in Michigan and New Jersey. On top of now having a new poker room, players in the state can access new gaming variants thanks to a game launch by PokerStars.

Online Poker Platform

The Michigan Gaming Control Board approved BetMGM to offer services in the state in late January. At the time, the brand decided to launch its online casino and sportsbook services. PokerStars went live in January as well, making it the only poker room operating in the state.

BetMGM is able to offer services in Michigan thanks to a partnership with MGM Grand Detroit. With its online poker room, the site is offering daily tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $0.25 to $535. This is a good range and provides event gaming options for players of all skill levels and bankrolls.

Players will find cash games as well as special promotions at the site. A nice variety of games are offered along with signature events. Easily use a single account to play online casino games, enjoy sports betting and poker via one wallet.

The site also integrates the M life Rewards program owned by MGM Resorts, the company behind the BetMGM brand. This allows players to earn points while playing in all areas of the online gambling services of BetMGM.

New Games via PokerStars

For players who are already enjoying services provided by PokerStars, the brand has decided to launch two new variants. PokerStars MI now includes HORSE and 8-Game titles. The operator provided a few of these game types during events of the MICOOP series and decided to bring the games on full time.

The regular weekly tournament schedule now includes HORSE and 8-Game events. The new options offer something different for players who like to play the odd variants or take a break from Texas Hold’em or Omaha.

Along with HORSE and 8-Game, PokerStars MI is also offering Draw Games. The operator has 2-7 Triple Draw games on offer as well as 5-Draw. Players who are not familiar with these variants can still visit PokerStars and play.

The provider offers the games with play money so that players can practice before wagering real funds. This is a great way to try out games risk-free, learning how to play effectively, and then hitting the real cash tables. Trying new games also makes poker more fun, as you might find yet another variant to mix into your regular gameplay.

The online poker market is still young but thriving. We expect that even more gaming options, tournaments, and promotions will launch in the weeks and months ahead. The market has huge potential and could easily reach great heights, surpassing New Jersey and Pennsylvania as the top state in the US offering online poker gaming. We are excited to see what happens next in this blossoming market.
