The first Michigan online betting apps are likely to appear by early 2021.
Under the current laws, online gambling sites wanting to provide games in Michigan must be partnered with an existing land-based operator. For sports betting, each casino is only allowed to have one online sportsbook partner.
Some tribal casinos in Michigan have got a head start on the commercial casinos by signing deals with online partners. The Stars Group (TSG) has penned a deal with the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, owners of the Odawa Casino Resort.
PokerStars already operates an online poker site in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. A similar operation in Michigan will be a simple rollout.
Australian sportsbook PointsBet has partnered with the Lac Vieux Desert Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians, owners of the Northern Waters Casino Resort. The deal will likely cover an online sportsbook and casino.
UK betting giant, William Hill, has buddied up with the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians, owners of the Turtle Creek Casino and Hotel.
BetAmerica, who already have a presence in the US market, have enter the market in partnership with the Hannahville Indian Community, owners of the Island Resort & Casino.
BetAmerica will offer online casino games and sports betting, plus a retail sportsbook at the Island Resort.

Major operator BetMGM will form an obvious online partnership with Detroit’s MGM Grand Casino. A retail sportsbook has already opened at the MGM Grand, and it’s likely that a sports betting app will appear in 2021.
Greektown Casino in Detroit is another land-based casino in Michigan that has already opened its own retail sportsbook. ‘The Sportsbook’ was one of Detroit’s best retail sportsbooks before shutting down when the COVID-19 outbreak hit.
The first Michigan sportsbook apps will likely be similar to those seen in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Bets will be available to over-21s only, but gamblers will have access to thousands of markets covering NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB.
Michigan customers will also be able to bet on overseas markets like soccer and politics. Greyhound and horse racing markets may also be available to bet on.
