BetRivers has a long history of slot tournaments. Since its inception, the operator has ridden on the back of numerous similar tournaments to rake in significant revenue. Thanks to some of its exciting promotional offers, BetRivers has pooled over $8 million in monthly revenue for the past seven months.

One of its major slot promotions is the Daily “Rush Race” which players can access on the BetRivers Casino app. There are also several VIP tournaments and weekly campaigns that gamblers with different bankroll sizes can enjoy.

The Michigan Millions slot tournament began on the 1st of April and will continue throughout the month. BetRivers is taking several steps forward with the cash prizes up for grabs. Players will compete for their share of a $1 million cash prize pool while a lucky player will walk away with a $100,000 grand prize.

Speaking about the new slot tournament, Richard Schwartz, CEO of Rush Street Interactive, the operators of BetRivers online casino had this to say:

“BetRivers is known for bringing first-of-its kind online casino experiences to our customers and we couldn’t be more excited to launch Michigan’s most exciting online slot tournament ever. With BetRivers Michigan Million, you get all the excitement of a real-world slot tournament, and the chance to win part of $1 million in guaranteed bonus money, from the comfort of home.”

With the cash prize offers, the BetRivers Michigan Millions ranks as one of the most rewarding online slots tournaments ever in the state.

Your Guide to Participating in the BetRivers Michigan Millions

While the Michigan Million Slot Tournament runs throughout the month, it would take place in three stages, allowing you to get into the tourney at different points. For the duration of the tournament and across each phase, the slot game to play is Cash Machine, a title developed by Everi. Players have to compete on the online slot to rise through the ranks on a leaderboard.

The first phase is a Qualifying Round. To join this stage, players are expected to deposit at least $50 with the promo code “MILLION” in their BetRivers Casino MI account. The deposit must be made between April 1 and 30. All eligible players will receive 100 tournament spins to play on the Cash Machine slot anytime during the month of April.

Clients that attain increased loyalty points will receive extra tournament spins. However, only players that end the month of April in the top 400 on the leaderboard will make it to the semi final phase.

All 400 players in the semi final round will be awarded 200 tournament spins to spend between May 5 and 6. From this phase, only the top 10 gamblers will qualify to the finals. However, semifinalists will walk home with $1,500 for their participation.

The final phase will take place via an live online event scheduled for the 15th of May. The top 10 players in the finals will have a 10-minute face-off to determine the grand prize winner. Each player will receive an unlimited number of spins and the best player after the live round wins the $100,000 grand prize. Other finalists will receive $35,000 each from the bonus money pool. 

John Mason Chosen to Moderate the Michigan Millions Slot Tournament

Public address announcer for the Detroit Pistons, John Mason, will host the entire tournament and live show for the Michigan Millions. Like he does regularly with the Pistons, Mason will seek to infuse some excitement into the slot tournament.

“Players in Michigan have never seen a slot tournament like this before,” said Mason. “I’ve been connected to the brand since the launch and am thrilled to be part of the BetRivers Michigan Million Online Slot Tournament. I can’t wait to see 400 Michiganders win their share of the $1 million bonus money prize pool.”

John Mason and BetRivers go way back. In January 2021, Mason placed the first wager with BetRivers Sportsbook Michigan. He has also had several unofficial engagements with the entire team at Rush Street.
