Michigan online casinos are going to see their gaming libraries expand even further.

The Michigan Gaming Control Board recently gave a business to business (B2B) supplier license to Playzido, an innovative gaming platform from Light & Wonder.

This new platform will allow operator partners in Michigan to receive a new stream of content for their gaming libraries through a proprietary remote gaming server.

That means the operators working with Light & Wonder among Michigan online casinos will have access to many new gaming studios and games.

Michigan first to bring Playzido into the US

The Playzido technology is purpose-built for creative independent studios. It supports every game type, including multiplayer games and jackpots.

Light & Wonder acquired Playzido a year ago and began expanding the product to different markets. Now, it arrives in the United States with Michigan as its first landing spot.

“This new license for Playzido in Michigan is a significant moment for us in terms of creation and delivering content that truly appeals to players in the state,” said Dan Jackel, Head of US Commercial at Light & Wonder iGaming, in a statement.

“Playzido’s platform is rightly regarded as one of the industry’s strongest and has already enjoyed enormous success in Europe. Everyone at Light & Wonder is ecstatic to harness the Playzido technology to bring next-level studios and games to our operator partners and players in Michigan to enjoy.”

Michigan online casino players can expect to see titles like Charlie’s Angels, Diamond Multiplier Respin and Blazing 777 2x3x5x to be coming to the state soon.

With success in Michigan, Light & Wonder hopes to expand Playzido throughout North America.

Michigan online casinos keep adding to gaming library

The Playzido licensing will allow Michigan’s online casinos to keep adding to their overall gaming library.

As of the beginning of October, all Michigan online casinos combined for over 9,600 game offerings across 16 different platforms.

Of that library, nearly 1,000 are of the jackpot variety. That will only increase as well with the introduction of Playzido.

With the expanding libraries, the online casinos in Michigan are staying well ahead of 2022’s revenue pace this year.

Through August, Michigan’s iGaming industry has produced $1.24 billion in revenue. That’s 22.3% greater than the first eight months of 2022 ($1.01 billion).

The $225.9 million in additional revenue this year is second in the US, only behind Pennsylvania ($282.7 million).
