How Many Casinos Are In Michigan?

Michigan may be known for its great lakes (it is called the Great Lakes State, after all), but it’s also become a hub for gambling in all forms. In fact, Michigan has 38 casinos available to all adults (18 to 21 depending on the property), including out-of-towners. This is because Michigan has a host of brick-and-mortar casinos as well as a hefty stable of online casinos that boost its total casino count. Online and retail casinos offer the same odds on slots, table games, video poker, keno, and beyond, giving bettors more access here than almost anywhere else in the country.

Michigan Casino Tips & Tricks

Now that you know Michigan has 38 total casinos across its land-based and online industries, you can start playing. here are a few tips to get you started.

Check Tribal Casino Age Requirements

Some Michigan tribal casinos set the age minimum lower than 21—usually at 18 or 19. This means some gamblers below 21 can enjoy all these casinos have to offer. If you’re unsure about the age requirement at your local casino, we recommend calling ahead to ask.

Line Up Your Online Casino With Your Local Land-Based Property

If you like to do a mix of land-based gambling and online betting, we recommend using the online casino that’s partnered with your local property. YOur rewards will often work at both the retail location and the online casino, meaning you’ll earn rewards faster as you play at both.

Claim Multiple Bonuses

If you wish, you can sign up for multiple online casinos and claim the bonus at each one. Fair warning, these bonuses typically require an initial deposit or a playthrough requirement after you’ve initially claimed the welcome promotion. Bet responsibly and only deposit what you can afford to lose – and don’t forget about the Michigan online casino no deposit bonus codes.
