The first real-money online poker provider has launched in Michigan. PokerStars is live and in service, having partnered with the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians Gaming Authority to offer services. Along with PokerStars, its sister brands FOX Bet and Stars Casino are also live in the state. With the service options, players located in Michigan will have access to the best in sports betting, poker, and casino games.
New Service Options
Because all of the new sites are connected, players can enjoy all services with a shared wallet. Easily visit FOX Bet, PokerStars, or Stars Casino and play with shared funds. Each segment offers a quality gaming experience for players, both beginners, and veterans of the iGaming world.
The online poker site will provide players with daily tournaments and cash games. Players will also have access to popular series like the Championship of Online Poker. Major Sunday events and weekday options are also available.
With FOX Bet, players have access to traditional sports betting along with in-play and futures. There is a solid selection of sports betting markets to choose from along with a range of international and national events.
FOX Bet CEO Kip Levin commented on the new launch by stating: “The key differentiators for us have always been our valued partnership with the FOX Corporation and the strength of our industry-leading FOX Bet Super 6 product combined with the PokerStars business and we plan to lean into these unique assets as we launch in Michigan. Behind FOX Bet Sportsbook, PokerStars, and Stars Casino, customers create one account for all three apps, unlocking a wide variety of exciting and entertaining options to supercharge the experience for our Michigan audience.”
The addition of PokerStars, FOX Bet, and Stars Casino is just a fraction of the operators entering the growing online gambling market in Michigan. In late January, NetEnt was approved in the state, set to offer its most popular titles including Divine Fortune and Starburst.
NetEnt will offer gaming services in the state via several operators including FanDuel, William Hill, DraftKings, Golden Nugget, and BetMGM.
