First-person online craps is now available at six Michigan online casinos, courtesy of global game operator Evolution.
The Michigan operators first offering the game Wednesday included:
Evolution hosts a live dealer studio in Southfield, although craps does not generate from there. The company released branded live dealer blackjack last week at six Michigan online casinos. Evolution live dealer games launched from Southfield on July 22, which included baccarat, blackjack and roulette.
The Michigan online casino industry has been on fire since launching on Jan. 22 and craps could be more of an attraction for players during the holiday season.
Evolution also launched online craps in Pennsylvania on Wednesday and told PlayPennsylvania that live dealer online craps would be coming there soon.
How to play online craps at Michigan online casinos
For online craps in Michigan, you won’t exactly get the same rush as playing at a live casino.
Although craps sometimes is the most lively table on the floor, online craps is more a singular game.
For the virtual version, players place bets on the craps table, and then push a button to roll the dice. Random-number generators dictate the roll of the dice.
All of the usual bets are available in the online version:
- Pass line/Don’t pass line
- Come bet/Don’t come
- The field
- Free odds/laying the odds
- 2 or 12
- Any 7
Operators with online craps could get a leg up
The end result of the impact from the launch of online craps in Michigan remains to be seen, but it can’t hurt the operators who do have more games available.
The bad news for those trying to climb the ladder is that market leader BetMGM Casino is among the first to have the game.
In September, the latest month we have revenue data from the Michigan Gaming Control Board, BetMGM earned $40.6 million of internet gaming revenue. That’s a 39.7% market share of the state’s $102.4 million record haul, by far the most of the state’s 14 operators.
So BetMGM is likely to continue keeping its competition at much more than arm’s length in this area of development, as well.
