Michigan bettors can now sign up with BetRivers to claim a $50 pre-launch bonus.
The BetRivers bonus can be used on casino games or sports bets once Michigan launches online sports betting and digital casinos. BetRivers offers the bonus with just a 1x playthrough requirement, undercutting big competition like DraftKings’s 25x requirement.
How To Claim Your $50
To snag the $50 bonus money, you’ll need to register for a BetRivers account in Michigan. The process is very simple. Here’s the info you’ll need:
- Screen name and password (you’ll create these)
- Email address
- Date of birth
- Phone number
- Last 4 of your SSN
- 2 security questions (you’ll choose these and enter answers)
Once you create an account, all you need to do is wait for BetRivers to launch in Michigan. Michigan online sportsbooks and casinos are inching ever closer to a full-fledged launch, so hopefully, the wait won’t be too long.
You can wager the bonus money on any sports bet at odds of -200 or longer (e.g. -175, +200). You can also use it for online casino games except for baccarat or roulette. You must use the bonus money within 30 days of BetRivers’ Michigan launch.
The offer expires as soon as BetRivers launches in Michigan, so act fast!
BetRivers In Michigan
BetRivers is expected to be a major player in the Great lakes State, right alongside other big names like BetMGM, DraftKings, and FanDuel.
In nearby Illinois, BetRivers has consistently performed very well against its competition. In September, BetRivers produced $46.3 million in handle, just behind FanDuel ($49.27 million) and beating out DraftKings ($40.08 million). And these numbers are all from the sportsbook only; Illinois doesn’t have online casinos.
BetRivers is partners with Little River Casino in Manistee for its sports betting and online casino license.
New Player Bonus
On top of BetRivers’ generous pre-launch bonus in Michigan, the operator will also offer a new player bonus. It comes in the form of a 100% deposit match up to $250. It may look small in comparison to major competitors’ $1,000+ offers, but there’s a key factor that sets it apart. BetRivers requires only 1x playthrough while the bigger names in the industry require much higher playthroughs, such as DraftKings’ 25x.
BetRivers Mobile App
You’ll be able to access BetRivers on your mobile device, but there’s one thing to keep an eye out for. In some states, BetRivers doesn’t yet offer an iOS app. In Colorado and Indiana, the BetRivers app redirects users to the mobile browser version of the sportsbook. In Illinois and Iowa, BetRivers has a full-fledged iOS app.
Whether BetRivers will offer a native iOS app in Michigan is yet to be seen, but it’s possible the operator will launch with an app based on its presence in Illinois and Indiana. Even if it’s not ready at launch, players can enjoy BetRivers via mobile browser until the app launches.
Android users will be able to download the BetRivers sportsbook and casino app direct from BetRivers’ website.
