The PromoGuy himself
When you are looking for a new sportsbook in Michigan, you might not think to look too far beyond what the big names are offering. So you don’t miss out, you should take time to read our Betfred Michigan preview.
Betfred sportsbook MI is not active just yet, but that doesn’t mean that it won’t offer generous welcome bonuses and a host of other benefits for anyone opening a new account when it does come online. In this Betfred Michigan preview, we’ll tell you about everything you are likely to find there, so you know exactly what to expect.
Because Betfred Michigan is not yet active, you might not have considered the bonus that would be available should it launch here in the future. This is not the case, as Betfred already operates successfully in many other states, and they are almost certain to duplicate what works elsewhere in any new states they open up in.
For that reason, we can realistically expect that the first wager match up to $500 would also be available here. This is an interesting bonus that goes one step further than the simple ‘risk-free’ bet offer you are likely to see elsewhere.
As the offer is not yet live in this state, we cannot say for certain whether you will need a Betfred promo code MI to activate the offer, but there are no other restrictions other than the legal ones that you are at least 21 and physically located in the state.
As mentioned above, a first wager match goes further than a risk-free bet, as you get a matching Betfred free bet whether your first wager wins or loses. The wager needs to be over $10 and placed at odds of -200 or longer, and the free bet will be credited to your account when that first bet is settled. This is not only quite generous compared to many other offers, but it has a simplicity that works for many deposit sizes and might appeal to the host of new bettors that would be joining Betfred Michigan.
As in all of the other states, a future Betfred sportsbook MI website will benefit from a simple layout that will be easy to navigate for those first-time bettors. Finding the key areas like account details and your balance, as well as all of your banking options, should be straightforward: they will be top right, with any support functions sitting right next to them on the top menu bar.
Placing a bet is simple, even if you’ve never done it before, as the page is set out to make it easy. There are already a number of options set out in the middle of the screen, but these will change immediately when you select your preferred sport from the left hand side of the screen. From the events displayed, clicking on any one of them will display all of the available markets as well as the Parlay options to build compound wagers. Whatever you select will be displayed on the betting slip on the right.
As the odds and lines at all of the other Betfred locations are competitive, we would expect the same to be true for Betfred sportsbook MI. We would also expect Betfred boosts to be in place. These increase the odds and lines available on selected events each day, typically for parlay wagers.
The live betting markets are also extensive and placing a live bet follows exactly the same process as ones for a ‘future’ event. We saw no live streaming options on the other operations, but this might not be the case by the time Betfred Michigan becomes a reality.
Future Betfred Michigan bettors also have an excellent mobile app to look forward to, regardless of whether they are an Android or iOS user. Again, placing a bet is intuitive and your details are top right with all the sports in a menu just below, with the main menu displayed across the bottom of your phone screen.
Funding your account at Betfred Michigan will be just as straightforward as placing a bet or using the bonus. This is because in other locations the main options used are online bank transfer, Visa and Mastercard, VIP Preferred, Play+ and PayNearMe.
This might seem like a limited number of options (and this might increase by the time Betfred Michigan becomes a reality), but they still offer a lot of choice. Remember that you can fund your Play+ account from a number of different sources, and PayNearMe allows you to use cash at a number of retail outlets. We would expect all of these payment methods to be credited to your account quickly, with no extra charges added by Betfred Michigan.
This is also a simple process, providing you have verified your account by uploading the required ID. After that you can request a withdrawal using Play+ for the fastest turnaround, VIP Preferred and bank transfer taking a few days, or by a check in the post – which could take 5 to10 working days, depending on the courier.
Having a problem with a deposit or withdrawal is the most likely reason you’ll need to contact customer support at any online sportsbook. When Betfred Michigan comes online, if it mirrors what is available in other locations, you’ll have the options of live chat, email, text and telephone. This covers all of the bases and more than makes up for the lack of any FAQ page that we could find.
Overall, Betfred rates highly for customer service, so this is yet another positive that any future customers of Betfred Michigan can look forward to.
The short answer here is no. The longer answer is that Betfred Michigan is not yet a reality, although when it is, it is likely to follow suit with other operations and be affiliated with a land-based casino. Betfred is an international operation that originated in the UK and has a long-standing reputation. This will go some way to ensuring that you can trust Betfred with your money and data, the other being that SSL encryption is in place across all Betfred locations in the US to keep things secure and private.
While there is currently no VIP or loyalty program in place, any future scheme is likely to match the industry standard of accruing points through wagers and cashing them in for rewards like free bets.
Aside from this, there are also likely to be the same sort of Betfred promo code that exists in other locations, like the Betfred boosts explained earlier, and other localized promotions handing out free bets when other certain bets are made, usually as parlays.
Without seeing what is on offer just yet, our rating is arrived at purely on what we would expect to see based on other locations. Taking all of this into account, Bettors in Michigan have a lot to look forward to. They will have an easy-to-use site and app, and a straightforward bonus that is one of the more generous we have seen. There are plenty of customer support options if things don’t go to plan, and plenty of ad hoc promotions and odds/lines boosts that will suit casual and regular players alike.
