This Friday, with mobile betting ready to go live in Michigan, DFS and sportsbook operator DraftKings Inc have teamed up with Bay Mills Resort & Casino for the forthcoming launch of their Great Lakes State mobile sportsbook and casino app for bettors.
Via the sportsbook app, sports enthusiasts will be able to place bets on their favourite leagues and teams as well as play a range of igaming options, such as blackjack, roulette and slots.
The launch of DraftKings Sportsbook in Michigan follows an expansive year during which the business grew to include Colorado, Illinois, Iowa and Tennessee in its national sportsbook product footprint. The business will be live with mobile sports betting in 11 states after a successful launch on Friday, which, it says, is more than any other company in the industry.

Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO, Jason Robins, commented: “Foremost, we would like to thank Bay Mills for their tremendous support in bringing DraftKings to the great state of Michigan. We are confident that our mutual commitment to product innovation and customer experience will serve as a solid foundation as we soon introduce Michiganders to the signature DraftKings experience.”
Bay Mills Resort & Casino is the longest running gaming facility in the state and has been instrumental in providing the state of Michigan with access to DraftKings’ online sportsbook and casino.
A new aspect of gaming entertainment
Bryan Newland, Indian Community Chairman, Bay Mills said: “We look forward to officially launching our partnership with DraftKings and bringing a new aspect of gaming entertainment to our fellow Michiganders. Online gaming and sports betting will help our tribe and our casino move solidly into the future.”
Customers in Michigan should expect many promotions, including those linked to the four professional sports teams and a variety of Division I college football and basketball programs, in addition to DraftKings’ wide range of conventional and special betting opportunities.
As the business is now the Detroit Pistons’ official sports betting and casino partner, clients will play team-specific, free-to-pay pools, odds boosts, and more. DraftKings is offering new customers in Michigan two deals to celebrate the eventual launch, including doubling your money on the Detroit Pistons to score a 3-point shot on Friday and doubling your money on any NFL team to score a touchdown from Friday to Sunday for the Conference Championship.
