The FanDuel Group and MotorCity Casino have reached an agreement that will grant the sportsbook operator official gambling partner status with the Detroit Tigers and Detroit Red Wings, two of the city’s most popular professional sports teams.
FanDuel Sportsbook will be displayed on the outfield wall and dasher boards at both Comerica Park and Little Caesars Arena, as well as on the Detroit Tigers and Detroit Red Wings Radio Networks, which attract fans throughout the state of Michigan.
Live in Michigan
FanDuel Group and MotorCity recently went Live in Michigan, unveiling a vertically immersive, real money online gaming experience for residents and tourists.
Mike Raffensperger, the company’s CEO, stated: “After a very successful launch in Michigan, we are excited to continue our momentum by partnering in this way with two of the most iconic sports organisations in the country.
“To celebrate, we are offering a $25 registration bonus for all eligible Red Wings and Tigers fans that use the code DETROIT after registering for a FanDuel Sportsbook account.*”
Aligning with Major League Baseball teams
This relationship with the Tigers, according to FanDuel, is part of the company’s ongoing policy of aligning with Major League Baseball teams in markets where smartphone gaming is legal. Major League Baseball has designated the company as one of around 15 MLB Permitted Gaming Operators. The National Hockey League has now made FanDuel its official sports betting affiliate.
MotorCity Casino is also a marketing partner of the Tigers and Red Wings. The state-of-the-art FanDuel Sportsbook at MotorCity Casino in Detroit, which opened in March 2020, is a collaboration between FanDuel Group and MotorCity Casino in Michigan.
