Michiganders looked forward to the launch of MI online casinos and sportsbooks for months. Friday, Jan. 22 ended the wait, as FanDuel Casino and others finally launched in Michigan. With this guide, you can not only get started but take advantage of FanDuel’s offer to cover your losses over your first day, up to $200.
We’ll go over registering your account, deposits, withdrawals, and the types of casino games you’ll find on the app. If you’re looking to try out FanDuel Sportsbook in Michigan as well, we’ve got you covered for that here. Without any further adieu, let’s get started.
FanDuel Online Casino in Michigan
It’s easy to try a lot of different games when you know the casino will cover your losses. That’s exactly what FanDuel is offering new customers in Michigan. Note, however, that if you have already taken up FanDuel on its welcome bonus for sports betting in MI, you won’t be eligible for this introductory offer on the casino side.
Just click on the link above to access FanDuel’s offer to cover any losses you have after your first 24 hours on the casino app. Players should remember that FanDuel will only cover your overall losses after your first day, meaning if your balance after 24 hours is lower than the amount of your initial deposit, FanDuel will make up the difference up to $200.
If you come out ahead overall, even if you do lose some money playing certain titles, you won’t get any site credit added to your casino account. Now that you know the details on FanDuel’s new customer bonus, it’s time to actually become a new customer.
Creating a FanDuel Casino account for Michigan online casino play
While you can access the online casino on a computer, the easiest and best way to get into the game is using FanDuel Casino’s mobile apps. Whether your device runs on the Android or iOS operating systems, FanDuel has you covered.
Please do note that if you’ve already installed the FanDuel Sportsbook app, you will have to repeat that process. FanDuel maintains a separate app for casino games. However, the two apps use a shared account and wallet, so you can use the same credentials to log-in to the casino if you’re already a sportsbook customer. If you’re completely new to FanDuel, however, take the following steps.
Step 1: Download your preferred app on your smartphone either on the App Store or by visiting the FanDuel Casino website using a mobile browser on your Android device. Google does not allow gambling apps on its Play marketplace. The website will detect your use of an Android device and walk you through the process of installing the app, including enabling downloads from third-party sources.
Step 2: You will be asked for a few bits of personal information. This may include the following:
- Date of birth
- Email address
- Last four digits of your Social Security Number
- Legal name
- Mailing address
This information is necessary not only for tax purposes but to ensure you’re eligible to play casino games in MI. Part of that is making sure you’re physically in Michigan when you play. To provide for that, you’ll need to install geolocation software if you’re on a computer or enable location services on your mobile device.
Step 3: Create a username and password. If you’ve played daily fantasy games with FanDuel before, you can use this same information. FanDuel will let you know if it needs any more information to verify your eligibility for casino. If you’re at least 21 years of age, not on any gambling self-exclusion lists, and within the state’s borders, you’re good to go.
How to deposit and withdraw funds on the FanDuel Casino app in Michigan
FanDuel accepts most credit and debit cards for account funding. If you don’t want to use that type of source, there are several other options. Those include:
- ACH payments from a checking or savings account
- Online banking
- Prepaid debit cards
- Third party e-wallets like PayPal
Once your funding source is set up, you can transfer funds from that source into your FanDuel account at any time. Please note that if you use prepaid debit cards, the company that grants the card may charge you a transaction fee.
While the easiest thing for withdrawals is to use the same financial information you deposit with, you don’t have to. FanDuel makes it quite easy to withdraw your winnings in a number of ways.
All of the above are offered, plus visiting the casino cage at the Greektown Casino in Detroit for a cash withdrawal.
Again, however, check with your financial institution to see if there is a transaction fee before you select your withdrawal method.
FanDuel Casino games for Michigan online gambling
Games on the casino app number in the hundreds and come in three distinct categories: live dealer, slots, and table games. No matter if you have favorites, or if you want to take advantage of your first 24-hour bonus period and try them all, you should be able to find something to your liking.
These games are an online representation of the video slot machines you can find at Michigan commercial and tribal casinos. They work the same way in that with each “spin,” the game pays out according to a random result.
Titles available on FanDuel Casino include:
- Divine Fortune
- Red Hot Tamales
- Triple Red Hot 7s
- Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spin
If you’d rather take a “seat” at a gambling table, FanDuel’s got you. High stakes or low bets to prolong your playing, it’s up to you, and the casino app welcomes your play either way in several games which include:
- American roulette
- Video poker
Live dealer games
Unfortunately, Michigan has not yet approved these games for play online. Just as the name suggests, these games really give you the feel of being in a casino because they have a live dealer. While there is no official timeline for when these games might be available, they are coming eventually.
FanDuel wants you to enjoy yourself on its casino app, so it’s offering to cover your losses over the course of your first day. With that guarantee, trying out the FanDuel Casino Michigan is a win-win.
