BetRivers Michigan Free $50 Signup Bonus Available Now

Written By Derek Helling on December 10, 2020 - Last Updated on January 19, 2021

Keen to bet on the Detroit Pistons and Red Wings online? The next NBA and NHL seasons should (in theory) see the advent of online sports betting platforms such as BetRivers Michigan.

Even for those Michiganders who prefer to play online casino games instead of wager on sporting events, a free registration bonus of $50 from BetRivers could prove quite useful. There’s little reason to pass on free money.

$50 BetRivers Michigan signup bonus

BetRivers isn’t actually offering online casino games or taking sports bets online in Michigan either… yet. It plans to do so starting at noon on Friday, Jan. 22 as the Michigan Gaming Control Board gave the all-clear.

BetRivers has an online gaming deal in place with the Little River Band of the Ottawa Indians who operate the Little River Casino & Resort in Manistee. That enables BetRivers to offer gamblers in MI an incentive to register their accounts.

All you have to do to take advantage of the $50 promo is sign up for BetRivers. To do that, click this link and visit the website on your computer, smartphone, or tablet. If you’re using an Android device, BetRivers will invite you to download its app.

Although BetRivers doesn’t have an iOS app for use in MI yet, it should be available soon. To register, you’ll need to provide the app/website with a few pieces of identifying information. Those are:

  • Date of birth
  • Email address
  • Last four digits of your Social Security Number
  • Legal name
  • Mailing address

The sportsbook will verify your eligibility and then at that point, credit your account with $50 free. You can deposit more funds if you like, but that $50 is free to use on sports bets, online casino games, or both.

You don’t have to be within the borders of MI to deposit funds or sign up for your account. Taking full advantage of this offer will give you $50 of site credit you can use in any way when online gambling does go live in the Wolverine State.

Options for how to use the free site credit on BetRivers

Although it’s possible that the MGCB could authorize iGaming and online sports betting at different times, the likelihood is that both will go live simultaneously. That means you’ll have a lot of different options for your site credit.

Rules for the promotion exclude using the bonus on baccarat and roulette, but all other casino games are fair game. For the sports bet, only odds at -200 or longer are prohibited (so -150 and +225, for instance, are OK).

When online sportsbooks in Michigan go live, there will be a wide array of events to wager on. Of course, provided there aren’t any serious COVID-19 complications, that’s likely to include:

  • College men’s basketball
  • NBA
  • NFL playoffs
  • NHL
  • Premier League soccer

If you’re successful in your gambling, you could turn your site credit into real money. That winning betting strategy may or may not include the Pistons and Red Wings, but at least you won’t be putting your own money at risk.

It’s $50 free. No reason to pass this up, guys.
