If you’re a Michigander itching for the day when you can bet on sports online and play online casino games, you are not alone. In fact, BetRivers Michigan wants to increase your anticipation.
The online gambling partner of Little River Casino & Resort in Manistee is offering $50 if you register for its platform right now, ahead of the Michigan online sports betting launch which is set to take place either in late December or early in 2021. That’s free money you can use any way you want once the product is actually available in the Wolverine State.
Details on the BetRivers Michigan registration bonus offer
You can’t legally stake yourself in casino games online or take part in online Michigan sports betting just yet, so how can residents of and visitors to MI register for BetRivers now? Well, that’s because it is not illegal to sign up for an account or even make a deposit on the app/website. You just can’t actually bet yet.
In fact, you don’t even have to be within the borders of Michigan to do either of those things. So if you live in Wisconsin but plan to gamble online in MI, you can take advantage of this offer without crossing the border.
As long as you’re at least 21 years of age and not on any gambling self-exclusion lists, you qualify for registration. To get started, visit the BetRivers website on your mobile device or computer. If you’re using an Android device, you can download the app for your operating system there.
For now, the company is not offering an iOS app for use in Michigan, but that should be coming soon.
First, sign up for BetRivers Michigan here. The app or website will then walk you through the registration process. You will need to provide a few pieces of information, such as:
- Date of birth
- Email address
- Last four digits of your Social Security Number
- Legal name
- Mailing address
After BetRivers verifies your information, it will credit your account with $50 in site credit. When the Michigan Gaming Control Board gives BetRivers the go-ahead to “flip the switch,” you can use that credit to bet on sports, play casino games, or both.
How soon will I get to use this site credit in Michigan?
While there’s still no firm date for when online betting will be available in Michigan, it is now likely that online Michigan sports betting will start in 2021.
BetRivers may be one of several Michigan operators to go live at their first opportunity. Those who register to take advantage of this deal will be able to give the company a spin with none of their own money at risk.
