EDITOR’S NOTE: The scheduled maintenance to Barstool online casino and sportsbook was completed Friday, July 14. Read below for details on why it was down.

Barstool Sportsbook and Casino is hoping to get some much-needed momentum for itself in the online gambling industry.

With its Michigan online casino and online sportsbook numbers diving, Barstool is now under maintenance for a scheduled 72-hour period. During that time all Barstool accounts will not be accessible.

Starting Sunday night, the scheduled maintenance will transition Barstool to a new in-house operating system set forth by new owners, Penn Entertainment.

While impacting online sportsbooks around the country, it also will impact the handful of online casinos Barstool operates, including here in Michigan.

Barstool casino progressive jackpots on pause during maintenance

One big impact during this scheduled maintenance will be on progressive jackpots offered by Barstool Casino MI.

Any local progressive jackpots that were in operation prior to going into maintenance on Sunday night will be paused during this process.

The games will be resumed at the same amount once the maintenance has been concluded. All progress will be reset during the maintenance period.

When it comes to linked progressive jackpots between New Jersey and Michigan, they were disabled at 9:30 p.m. on Sunday. Impacted games include:

  • MJP Cleopatra
  • MJP Golden Goddess
  • MJP Ocean Belles
  • MJP Siberian Storm
  • MJP Wheel of Fortune on Air
  • MJP Wolf Run

Further questions on the jackpot games can be done through the Barstool 24/7 customer support service.

Barstool working with theScore for upgraded experience

Barstool is touting that this upgrade will bring an enhanced presentation with improved functionality to the online gaming brand.

Barstool will now be utilizing theScore media and gaming, a digital media company based in Toronto to aid in its upgraded platform.

“Over the last year, our team has been working hard to build a new and improved Barstool Sportsbook, loaded with additional features to upgrade your betting experience. The upgraded app will include fast load times, deposits and withdrawals, more markets and expanded player props, enhanced promotions and more Barstool exclusives. Barstool Sportsbook also will be more deeply integrated with theScore App, allowing you to build your betslip, follow your betting activity and get live matchup markets all from right withing theScore,” Barstool stated on its website.

What Barstool didn’t bother to note in this quote is how this upgrade will apply to its online casino.

That’s not terribly surprising considering it hasn’t put much effort to feature its iGaming product here in Michigan. Overall, Barstool has seen notable drops in online casino revenue and online sports betting handle for 2023.

What will be different at Barstool Online Sportsbook & Casino?

Barstool will be making some overall changes to its online product with this maintenance.

Outside of the added features the site promoted, there will be a few technical changes as well.

One new feature following the upgrade will be the log-in.

Users will now be using their email address to log in as opposed to their username.

Bonus cash will no longer exist with Barstool following the maintenance. Instead, it will be replaced with bonus bets, bonus spins or cashback promotional offerings.

All Responsible Gaming limits that currently exist on accounts will remain intact following the maintenance period. Any changes that were pending prior to the start of the maintenance period will need to be re-requested following its conclusion.
