The first live dealer games have gone live in the state of Michigan, as the Michigan Gaming Control Board approved of Evolution's live dealer software.
The games are initially launching on DraftKings today, having gone live at 10am on July 22nd. There are three initial games being broadcast today, with Blackjack, Roulette, and Baccarat tables available. Additional games will be added in the future, including broadcast-style games like Dream Catcher, Monopoly Live, and others.
A release sent by DraftKings to players in Michigan read in part: "Live Dealer brings the real casino experience to you, wherever you are! Whether you're at home, hanging out with friends, or on the go, Live Dealer is the perfect blend of casino & convenience. Live Dealer casino games are exactly what they sound like, casino games played with a real dealer rather than computer RNG software."
These are the first live dealer games for the state of Michigan, and there'll undoubtedly be more casinos getting access to the games as time goes on. Michigan's online gaming industry launched in January and has brought in millions of dollars in revenues and tax dollars in the time since launch.
