Four Michigan Casino Operators Set to Debut Red Tiger Timed Jackpot Slots



  • After successful debuts in several other states in North America, Red Tiger is expanding into Michigan casinos.
  • The Evolution subsidiary company aims to bring its long line of slot products and progressive jackpots to players in the Great Lake State.
  • Red Tiger will kick off its operations in the state with the introduction of timed daily jackpots starting from $1,000.

Red Tiger has begun plans to introduce its online slots and a special collection of timed jackpot releases in Michigan. The Evolution-owned iGaming supplier made this announcement on the 25th of January, 2023 and is expected to go live with four operators in the Michigan market.

After a record-breaking 2022 that saw Michigan online casinos grow by 41% from the previous year, Red Tiger aims to contribute to the success of the industry. Through its systems, Michigan players will be able to participate in Mini and Daily jackpot rewards in the coming months.

Michigan Becomes Second US State to Feature Red Tiger Jackpots

After a successful stint in Connecticut, Quebec and Ontario, Red Tiger is further expanding its operations into North American markets. Michigan will be the first US state this year to welcome innovative titles and jackpot games from the supplier. As it stands, Red Tiger is the only iGaming slots developer in the US offering state-of-the-art timed jackpots.

The company announced this launch via a press release on its website and subsequent social media posts on Twitter and Facebook. With its entry into Michigan markets, players will now enjoy up to 48 award-winning and highly rewarding titles. It is expected that the games will be officially available in February, subject to regulatory approval.

Since 2014, Red Tiger has proven its worth in Europe, with players and operators vouching for the sheer quality and excitement that come with the developer’s products. Commenting on this new expansion activity, the Chief Commercial Officer of Evolution North America, Jeff Millar remarked:

“We’re very excited to be launching jackpot games in Michigan today. Our unique timed jackpot mechanic will create a sense of excitement amongst players, a thrill that can only come from this countdown effect.”

As part of this development, eligible Michigan online casino operators will be able to set up progressive jackpots with special configurations.

Everything You Need to Know About Unique Timed Jackpots

All 48 Red Tiger slots to debut in Michigan will offer two types of progressive jackpots. The first is a Mini Jackpot with rewards starting at $100 while the other is a Daily Jackpot with starting prizes of $1000. Both of these progressive jackpot options are configurable by respective casino operators.

By design, these jackpots are guaranteed to hit before a particular time of the day. Many operators typically set the Daily Jackpot to hit at peak nightly hours, from 9pm to 11pm. It is expected that this would draw more players and build excitement as clinching the grand prize draws closer.

These jackpot games will include in-built meter widgets for operators to configure into their mobile apps and websites. Considering the brand popularity that Evolution has built in the US gambling markets over time, there are no doubts that this project will become a massive success as quickly as it takes off.

Of course, Michigan won’t be the last of states to enjoy this outstanding feature. According to Jeff Millar, the company has plans to extend beyond the frontiers of the Great Lake State. In his press release, he further noted thus:

“We are constantly looking to build on our partnerships and strengthen our relationships with North American operators, and we look forward to launching Red Tiger jackpots in all approved jurisdictions across North America.”
