We are confident that customers old and new are going to love what is the latest in a long line of Soaring Eagle developments.Less than two months after launching online casino gaming at the Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort in Mount Pleasant, the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan has entered into a partnership with Evolution Gaming for live dealer games and a host of additional online casino content.
The agreement calls for Evolution to provide its portfolio of live casino games and first-person RNG titles from its live studio in Southfield, a suburb just outside of Detroit. The live dealer games offered include variants of baccarat, blackjack, craps, and roulette.
Evolution said top slot games from its Red Tiger brand — including Gonzo’s Quest Megaways and Piggy Riches Megaways — and Red Tiger’s jackpots would be available to players at Soaring Eagle right away. Other titles from Evolution’s NetEnt brand — such as Divine Fortune Megaways, Fruit Shop Megaways, and Starburst — “will be available to players in the coming weeks,” the Sweden-based company said.
Soaring Eagle Gaming CEO Melinda Coffin added that, in table games alone, the casino “prides itself on offering the hottest gaming action in the Midwest. Now our players will be able to experience the same thrill online, not only playing the casino classics but also exciting and entertaining game show-style games.
“We are confident that customers old and new are going to love what is the latest in a long line of Soaring Eagle developments.”
Soaring Eagle is Michigan’s Largest Class III Tribal Casino
The Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB) authorized the tribe to launch online casino gaming and sports betting in April. While the MGCB does not regulate tribal casinos in the state, it has oversight authority to ensure tribes comply with gaming compacts between tribes and the state.
At the time, Soaring Eagle became the 15th casino in the state. Of those, 12 are tribal casinos, and three are commercial casinos in Detroit. Soaring Eagle is also the largest Class III tribal casino in Michigan, according to state revenue figures for 2021, the most recent available.
Soaring Eagle entered a separate agreement with UK-based GAN in May 2021. Under that agreement, GAN agreed to provide the facility in Mount Pleasant with online casino games and an online sportsbook.
