FanDuel Casino Michigan Preview 2020

FanDuel may have started with Daily Fantasy Sports, but its reach is now far greater. Acquired by international gaming giant Flutter Entertainment in 2018, FanDuel Group has become part of a more expansive portfolio as it continues its ascent in sports betting and online casino. While an exact launch date is still unknown, Michigan will soon be joining the growing roster of iGaming/online casino states with access to FanDuel online casino.

This page will serve as a comprehensive preview of FanDuel Casino MI, covering what players can expect from its catalog of games, promotions, rewards, and most importantly, when the betting will start.

FanDuel online casino bonus offer (likely)

FanDuel Casino’s welcome bonus has been consistent across the board, regardless of the state you’re playing from. It would come as a big surprise if the same offer wasn’t awaiting Michiganders when the site launches soon in the state.

The welcome bonus consists of a 24 hour – $200 risk-free play. Here’s how it works: After creating a FanDuel Casino account and depositing money, bettors receive a 24 hour window to play risk-free. If users are down money at the end of the 24 hour period, a refund in the form of site credits is awarded, up to the maximum of $200. After using the credits once (a 1x rollover requirement), those funds become equivalent to cash, and users can treat it as such in the casino or withdraw if preferred.

The 24 hour risk free window will begin the moment you place your first real money wager in the casino.

Welcome bonus breakdown

FanDuel’s welcome bonus is a pretty straightforward offer that doesn’t require much explanation. As discussed above, the promotion provides a 24 hour risk-free betting window. After placing your first real money wager, gamble in the casino until your heart is content. If you’re down money after 24 hours you will be awarded bonus credits as compensation, up to the $200 max. Keep in mind that the promotion is capped at $200, so if you lose more than that on your first day, there will still only be $200 coming back.

Any site credits received through the promo must be used within seven days or they will expire. You just need to wager the bonus credits 1x in order to officially clear it and make the refund available for withdrawal. And should you finish up after 24 hours? You won’t get any additional bonus, but the reward is an expanded bankroll.

Who can play on FanDuel Casino Michigan?

There are just a couple of general requirements that must be met before you can ante up in the FanDuel MI online casino. First, you must be at least 21 years old. The 21+ age requirement is the status quo throughout the casino industry in the United States.

Second, you need to be physically present in the state of Michigan, which legalized iGaming, sports betting and online poker in 2019.  To be clear, you don’t have to live there – you just have to be inside the state. Driving through, connecting at an airport, vacationing on the lake, it doesn’t matter. If you’re in Michigan, you can play.

Satisfy both and you’re good to go!

Signing up with FanDuel Casino

In states like Pennsylvania, FanDuel casino is available exclusively through a mobile app. However, you can still sign up and create an account from a computer. We don’t know exactly what FanDuel’s plans are for Michigan, but we expect registration to be available from all platforms.

When the casino does go live, in order to get the bonus, you will need to begin the account creation process using the links on this page.

You can also download the FanDuel Sportsbook app through your preferred app store on your mobile device. The FanDuel Casino is currently accessible through the FanDuel Sportsbook app. There’s a designated ‘Casino’ button at the top and bottom of the app homepage. Once you’ve loaded the app, select the ‘Join Now’ button in the top right corner.

Once on the registration form, FanDuel will ask for some information including name, date of birth, email, a username, security questions, and password. The last four digits of your Social Security Number are also required before you can legally gamble online. That applies for Michigan, and every state with some form of regulated iGaming.

FanDuel Casino MI platforms

Traditionally most regulated online casinos in the United States operate on three primary platforms:

  • Computer/Web browser
  • iOS App
  • Android App

Computer/Browser

Expectations are that FanDuel casino will eventually support each platform for online gaming in the state of Michigan. However, if its operations in other states are any indication, it may take some time to get there.

In Pennsylvania, for example, FanDuel casino currently operates in a mobile-only capacity. While you can sign up from a computer, you cannot play online casino games from one. Instead you must download one of the optimized mobile apps for your iOS or Android device.

Likewise, in New Jersey there is no FanDuel casino website either. Instead, its Garden State online casino actually runs through fellow Flutter Entertainment brand, Betfair.

Again, we do expect browser-based versions of the FanDuel casino to eventually hit the market, but it wouldn’t be a shock to see it initially launch in Michigan with a mobile-only structure.

iOS App

You can easily locate the FanDuel app within the Apple app store. It’s listed as FanDuel Sportsbook, which also incorporates the online casino. After opening the app you’ll be asked to select the right state. Once live, Michigan will be added to the following list:

After arriving on the FanDuel Michigan Sportsbook app homepage, click one of the designated ‘Casino’ buttons located at the top and bottom of the screen to see what games are available.

Android App

Much like its iOS counterpart, Android users can find the FanDuel app within their chosen app store. It’s also not uncommon for online casinos to have specific download pages that offer direct download links for Android devices, bypassing the app store completely.

Regardless of device, mobile apps will provide customers with access to all essential account functions including the game catalog, support, and of course, banking…

Deposits and Withdrawals

Online casino cashiers generally look very similar, regardless of the state they’re in. Therefore, even though FanDuel Casino has not opened in Michigan, we can make some educated guesses as to the methods of payment it will accept for both deposits and withdrawals.

  • Online Banking: If your bank offers an online bill paying service (many do), you can connect your account directly to your FanDuel casino account for easy transactions.
  • PayPal: A popular eWallet that’s easy to fund, and easy to send money with.
  • eCheck/ACH: With your basic banking details you can essentially write a digital check to cover your deposit. eChecks are very fast, and efficient.
  • Bank wire: A little slow, but very steady. If you’re moving a larger sum, it’s hard to beat a wire.
  • FanDuel Casino Prepaid Play+ Card: Play+ cards are essentially a casino-centric, prepaid credit card. You can fund it through a variety of methods and use it for both casino deposits and withdrawals.
  • Credit/Debit Cards: Visa and MasterCard are likely a sure thing, though we’ll cross our fingers for a more niche option like American Express or Discover. Notably, cards are typically only available for deposits.
  • Check: If you prefer an old school method, upon request you can withdraw by receiving a paper check from the casino. It’s not a common deposit method, but is available in some instances.

It’s worth mentioning that customers are often required to withdraw using the same method that they use for deposit. Similarly, not every available method will be an option for both deposits and withdrawals – so keep that in mind when funding your account. We will be sure to update this section to reflect the current FanDuel Casino cashier as soon as the site launches in Michigan.

As a top destination for DFS, sportsbook, and now casino, FanDuel Michigan customers will likely be able to share one wallet between all three verticals. This flexibility is a great convenience for customers.

FanDuel MI casino games

Online casinos typically start with a small group of games, and then use them as a building block to shape their overall catalog. It is our expectation that the site will first go live with a rather limited group of game options, and expand it over time. Part of the beauty of online casino gaming is that there are often numerous versions of the same game, each with different rules, limits, and aesthetics.

FanDuel casino will feature all of the industry’s major draws, such as:

Blackjack

As one of the biggest pulls to any casino, it is unlikely that FanDuel will launch its online site in Michigan without at least one version of the popular table game. Eventually users will have a wide variety of online blackjack tables to choose from, each with its own rules and graphical feel.

Slots

Slots work fantastically well on mobile devices and will make up a large portion of every online casino’s overall game library. Expect to see dozens, if not hundreds of titles to choose from.

So which specific slots will land in Michigan? We can’t say for sure, but many of the usual suspects should be present, like Gonzo’s Quest, Dear or Alive, and of course… Divine Fortune. Jackpot slots, like DF, are amongst the most popular machines in the industry.

Roulette

Online casinos typically boast numerous roulette games that include American Roulette (0 and 00), but also French and European Roulette which are played with just a single 0 space. The fewer the zeros, the better the odds are for players. While it’s unclear which, or how many versions will be available at launch, it’s a safe bet that some form of Roulette will be present from the get-go.

Video Poker

Like the rest of the library, expect the video poker options for FanDuel MI to start small. FanDuel has a track record of offering Game King video poker games, which are generally the most sought after titles in this category. It’s Pennsylvania casino has just a handful of video poker titles, though, in the more mature New Jersey market its partners spread plenty of choices, including: Game King Video Poker, Bonus Poker, Double Bonus Poker, Double Double Bonus Poker, Five Play Draw Poker, Jacks or Better, and more.

Live Dealer

Bring the complete casino experience home with you. Live Dealer games are produced in a professional studio and streamed over the internet. Participants are dealt real cards, in a real casino game that’s officiated by a live dealer. You can interact with the table and even chat with the dealer who can respond in real time. It’s as close as you’re going to get without actually being there in-person.

Common Live Dealer games include blackjack, roulette, baccarat, craps, and video poker.

Live Dealer games will be coming to Michigan, though it may take a little time for them to get set up. Based on activity in other states it would be unlikely to see them available at launch. Expect a slightly delayed Live Dealer rollout that’s well worth the wait.

FanDuel loyalty & rewards

FanDuel does not currently offer a casino rewards program in other states, thus it doesn’t seem realistic to expect Michigan to buck the trend. While other online casinos like BetRivers are expected to debut with a robust loyalty program, we can’t say the same for FanDuel.

It’s not unrealistic to assume that some sort of loyalty program is on the way. FanDuel offers a complex rewards scheme for its Daily Fantasy Sports players, it just hasn’t made its way over to the casino side of the business yet. A Pennsylvania rewards system has been rumored for some time, but has yet to make an appearance.

Let’s hope a surprise is in store for Michigan users.

Support

If you have questions, FanDuel support is there. As a legal, regulated online casino, Michigan gamblers will be able to easily contact support representatives for FanDuel casino through a variety of methods, including:

  • Email: [email protected] is the support email address for Pennsylvania. We will update accordingly should it change for MI.
  • Live chat: Probably the easiest way to get a prompt reply from an informed member of the FanDuel team.
  • Phone: Once available we’ll list the corresponding support phone number for FanDuel Michigan.
  • FAQ: Search through a detailed database of commonly asked questions.

More on FanDuel

Founded in 2009, FanDuel got its iGaming start in Daily Fantasy Sports. It quickly rose to the top of the industry going head-to-head with chief competitor, DraftKings.

In 2016 both FanDuel and DraftKings announced intentions to merge and combine their player bases. However, after months of deliberation the Federal Trade Commission blocked the merger which would have given the company a monopoly with more than 90% of the industry’s business.

In the years since FanDuel has blossomed as one of the world’s largest online gaming providers, expanding its business to also include both casino and sportsbook. The company now operates online casinos, sportsbooks, and retail sports betting facilities in numerous states throughout the country.

In 2018 FanDuel was acquired by the iGaming juggernaut Paddy Power Betfair, which has since rebranded as Flutter Entertainment. As of 2020 the Flutter blanket pulls together a number of prominent brands, including FanDuel, PokerStars, FOX Bet, Betfair, Paddy Power, Adjarabet, and many more.
