Written By Drew Ellis on December 9, 2022

Michigan online casino players are going to start seeing an influx of options from Design Works Gaming.

Already partnered with BetMGM, DWG has reached deals recently with DraftKings and Caesars online casinos here in Michigan.

Touting success in New Jersey, DWG games is hoping for similar results with its expansion in Michigan.

Quick expansion for DWG at Michigan online casinos

Design Works Gaming was approved for its Michigan Gaming Control Board license in October of 2021 and didn’t wait long to get started.

DWG games first launched at a Michigan online casino as part of a deal with BetMGM Michigan in early November. Just weeks later, it added a partnership with DraftKings Casino MI.

This past week, DWG added Caesars Casino MI to its inventory, landing some of Michigan’s top names in the iGaming industry.

“After the success we’ve seen with our games in New Jersey, our team is brimming with excitement to finally be live in Michigan and to debut with the largest operator in the state,” CEO of DWG Troy Zurawski told PlayUSA. “In just a few short months since going live with BetMGM in New Jersey, we’ve seen unmatched dedication to creating the best player experience possible.”

New Jersey was the first state to feature DWG games, with Michigan becoming the second. DWG also holds licenses in Connecticut and Pennsylvania.

What games does Design Works Gaming offer?

DWG brings in a wide portfolio of online casino games.

Slot and LuckyTap titles from Design Works Gaming are now offered through the Light & Wonder OpenGaming platform.

Titles casino players can expect to see include:

  • LuckyTap
  • Double Fancy 7s
  • 10X Fortune
  • Piggy Payouts Bank Buster LuckyTap
  • Test Your Strength LuckyTap

Michigan online casinos coming off record-breaking October

The addition of DWG games should only help Michigan’s online casinos, which are coming off a record-setting October.

Michigan had $141 million in iGaming revenue for October, which was the fourth highest month on record in the United States.

The record month was a 9.4% jump in revenue from September ($128.7 million), which was the biggest month-to-month increase since December of 2021 (13.2%).

Both BetMGM ($52.3 million) and DraftKings ($20.1 million) had record iGaming revenue numbers in October as well.
