As Michigan prepares for regulated online betting, the Wolverine State granted American software group High 5 Games approval to begin offering their games to licensed online casino operators when the market launches.
High 5 has been operating with social games in Michigan for some time, and their popular games like Double Da Vinci Diamonds, Secrets of the Forest, and The Green Machine Deluxe have brand recognition. This will make them an attractive get for operators, who'll be keen to offer the games to paying customers. High 5 has seen success in the New Jersey market, and there are many similarities in terms of population that Michigan shares, leading the company to be confident that the state will be profitable when it launches.
There are more than 150 games in total in High 5's library, mainly consisting of video slots. The games are designed in HTML5 and all feature built-in mobile compatibility.
Commenting on the licensing High 5 Games CEO Anthony Singer said, "We've expanded into every European market over the last few years, and now we're refocusing our efforts here at home. Receiving approval for our games to go live in Michigan is a key step. We'll be there on Day 1, we'll be in Pennsylvania shortly after, and we've made a commitment to be in every state across the U.S. as new iGaming markets open up. Big things are happening."
