BetMGM Casino Players Can Win With The Detroit Lions, For A Change. Here’s How.

Written By Matt Schoch on August 13, 2021

No matter happens with the Detroit Lions this coming NFL season, you have a chance to be a winner with them, thanks to BetMGM Casino.

Through their partnership with Michigan’s beloved National Football League team, BetMGM launched Detroit Lions Blackjack and Detroit Lions Roulette this week.

The games helped bring BetMGM (319 games), the MI online casino market leader for revenue, one game away from TwinSpires Casino (320) for the top spot in game count, as of Friday afternoon.

Slick renderings for Detroit Lions table games

The Detroit Lions Blackjack and Detroit Lions Roulette games are digitally set in a Ford Field suite at the home of the Lions in downtown Detroit.

Behind the dealer, you can see the 50-yard line.

To be clear, this is not a live dealer online casino game, though it is made by Evolution, the sole provider of live dealer online casino games in Michigan so far.

The online casino games do, however, feature a “Go Live” button. You can click it in between hands, and it will take you to the Evolution studio for live dealer online casino games. BetMGM is one of 10 Michigan operators that have launched live dealer games through Evolution.

The games stem from a partnership BetMGM hatched with the Lions last fall.

BetMGM also has Hall of Famer Barry Sanders in its lineup of spokespersons, though Sanders has not yet appeared in any widespread promotional materials.

The fruits of that relationship will be something we’re watching this fall at Playinmichigan.

Bonus offer for Detroit Lions games launch

BetMGM is also sweetening the pot for the launch of its Detroit Lions games.

If you opt-in on the Promotions page to the Lions Bet & Get offer, then play $25 in Detroit Lions Blackjack, then you get $10 of free play on Detroit Lions Roulette.

The free play has a 25x wagering playthrough requirement, so you have to play $250 on Detroit Lions Roulette before it converts to real money.

FireKeepers Casino debuts at No. 11 on our game count

Another thing we watch regularly here at Playinmichigan is the online casino game counts.

FireKeepers Casino launched last month and is already initially strong with 73 total games, good for No. 11 in the market.

As of our last count last month, TwinSpires Casino, BetMGM Casino and WynnBET Casino were the top three in the market for game selection. Those three remained at the top on this check.
