BetMGM adds Atlantic Digital slots to Michigan online casinos

“Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” and “Cheers” mark Atlantic Digital’s North America debut on BetMGM in Michigan. The companies confirmed in the press release that both titles will be available in all jurisdictions where the US online casino operator is live pending regulatory approvals.

The Michigan online casino market is among the most successful in the US, next to Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

BetMGM Casino Michigan regained the top spot in May. The operator has led the state market for 39 months since online casinos launched in January 2021.

However, that trend ended in March 2024 after FanDuel took its place.

BetMGM launch of Atlantic Digital games adds a new dimension to offering

Atlantic Digital specializes in online casino games based on classic movies and TV shows. Some of their most famous titles recognized by many players are “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and “Charlie’s Angels” slots.

The company’s CEO, Sam Hobcraft, said in the BetMGM news release: “We are delighted to work with these iconic brands – Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Cheers and BetMGM.

We have built two unique games that really show off the brands to their fullest extent, from classic theme tunes to animations showcasing all the characters.

It is a pleasure partnering with BetMGM to launch these branded games and add a new dimension to their product offering.”

“Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” is a 5×3, 20-pay line slot that offers four fixed jackpots, mini wheel respins, and bonus spins with cash-on-reels and multiplier wilds.

Based on the TV sitcom, the “Cheers” slot puts players inside this cozy bar in Boston to join the main characters. The 17-payline slot has re-spins with sticky, nudging wilds, three fixed jackpots, and nine diverse bonus games.

Our partnership with Atlantic Digital has added an element of exclusivity and entertainment to our already expansive library of games.”
