Golden Nugget Online Gaming (GNOG) has received authorization from the Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB) to start offering its online casino and sportsbook at 12pm EST on January 22, 2021.
From Friday, Michigan players can place wagers and sports bets on their laptops at GoldenNuggetCasino.com, or download the Golden Nugget Online Casino app to their smartphone or tablet.
GNOG has been an online gaming operator in New Jersey since 2013. It received a provisional license from the MGCB for commercial and tribal casinos’ online gaming and sports betting offerings last month.
In the Wolverine State, the operator will offer its premium product and customer experience through its partnership with the Ojibwa Casino & the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC).
GoldenNuggetCasino.com will feature a variety of online slots and table games and will offer a welcome bonus of up to $1,000, plus its popular promotions including The Five Million Dollar Race.
Thomas Winter, President of Golden Nugget Online Gaming, said: “We are really excited to go live in Michigan and are committed to offering a superior product, flawless execution and world-class player experience like we have done in New Jersey.
“We’d like to thank our partners, the Ojibwa Casino and the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community, for their support in introducing our premium online casino and sportsbook in the great state of Michigan.”
GNOG will also launch a brand new version of its online sportsbook using the open sports platform from Scientific Games.
GoldenNuggetSports.com will offer up to $250 in free bets to all new sportsbook customers as well as daily odds boost (Golden Lines), reduced juice bet-types (Notorious VIG) and enhanced parlays with the ‘Parlay Boost’ feature. Pre-game and live betting will be offered across all American sports leagues and a wide selection of international sports.
Larry Denomie III, General Manager of Ojibwa Casino, added: “We look forward to our partnership with the Golden Nugget. Their launch highlights our commitment in bringing an exceptional online casino and sportsbook experience to our patrons in Michigan.
“Working with a strong brand such as Golden Nugget complements our casino offerings in Marquette and Baraga.”
