Hybrid dealer games are gaining momentum with online gambling.

Caesars Digital is the next to be jumping into the new gaming format, announcing a deal with Inspired Entertainment to bring hybrid dealer games to its online apps.

That means they will be coming to Michigan online casinos soon through the Caesars Casino Michigan app.

Hybrid dealer in Michigan will have live-dealer feel with random results

Last week, Caesars Digital and Inspired Entertainment announced their new partnership.

The agreement centers around Inspired providing hybrid dealer products for Caesars.

Hybrid dealer games are a new technology for online casinos that seamlessly integrates Virtual CGI, green screen technology, and footage of real dealers to create a unique gaming experience.

“We are excited to be working with Caesars to bring these revolutionary hybrid dealer products to their players,” said Brooks Pierce, President and CEO of Inspired in a press release.

“[This] is a whole new category of games, and through our advanced technology, Caesars will be able to provide realistic experiences to their players without the expense and effort of dedicated studios and staffing.”

The hybrid dealer format is a patent-pending product that is meant to offer players branded casino and gameshow content without the challenges that can come from live-dealer products.

Hybrid dealer games don’t need a studio to operate. All outcomes are random-number-generated.

The games will run 24 hours a day, seven days a week with the hosts changing regularly to keep players engaged.

The addition of these new dealer games allows Caesars to bring online players to their flagship casino properties through the virtual product.

“We are always looking for new ways to enhance the player experience and for ways to keep our players engaged,” said Matt Sunderland, Senior Vice President and Head of iGaming at Caesars Digital in a press release. “Inspired’s Hybrid Dealer technology provides a customizable gaming experience that is second to none and allows our players to enjoy the thrill of our iconic Caesars destinations in a whole new way. This partnership is a testament to our dedication to providing the best online casino experience for our players through cutting-edge offerings.”

Caesars operates two Michigan online casino products. It launched Caesars Palace Online Casino in the state back in August. That is a standalone online casino application.

Along with that, Caesars still has a lesser online casino product as part of its Caesars Sportsbook Michigan app. That offers fewer games, but still covers all major gaming categories.

Last week, Caesars Digital reported it was up 54% in net income for Q3 of 2023. That is in comparison to Q3 of 2022.

Hybrid dealer expanding in Michigan

Last month, BetMGM announced it had also struck a deal with Inspired Entertainment to bring hybrid dealer games to its online products.

MGM Bonus City was the first hybrid dealer game to be unveiled. It first launched in New Jersey, but will be coming soon to BetMGM Casino Michigan.

These partnerships with Inspired Entertainment show that Michigan online casinos continue to seek new gaming options for customers. It also is a sign that iGaming in the state isn’t going to be slowing down anytime soon.
