Launched in February, Rakin’ Bacon Odyssey is a new version of the original Rakin’ Bacon slot game, which came out in 2018. Rakin’ Bacon Odyssey centers around a cartoon pig called Cornsquealius and is set on a 3×5 reel that can expand to 6×5 during the bonus round. There are 7,776 ways to win and four jackpots. Bonus features include free spins and a progressive pick feature.

As BetMGM seeks to integrate online and land-based casino offerings, players in the Great Lake State can access the game via the BetMGM online casino or the MGM Grand Detroit.

“Rakin’ Bacon Odyssey is a fantastic example of BetMGM’s omnichannel advantage. We are incredibly proud to be the exclusive online home of the newest version of this popular game in Michigan which has proven to be the top state for igaming,” said Oliver Bartlett, BetMGM’s vice president of gaming product & content.

This week, BetMGM said it is teaming up with Wheel of Fortune for its “Big Money Week,” which will take place from through Friday. To celebrate its 8,000th episode, BetMGM will sponsor a progressive jackpot and a segment on the giant wheel that players will spin.
