Sports betting became legal in Michigan on December 20, 2019, and launched in retail locations (physical sportsbooks and casinos) on March 11, 2020.
On January 22, 2021, the Wolverine State launched online and mobile sports betting across the state, and BetMGM was one of the first online sportsbooks to go live and start taking bets from across Michigan.
Yes, sports bettors in Michigan can register, fund, and bet with any MI online sportsbooks online without ever setting foot inside a brick-and-mortar casino. On top of that, you don’t even have to be a Michigan resident in order to use a betting app or online sportsbook, as long as you are within the state borders.
Michigan finalized most of the rules and regulations for sports betting at retail sportsbooks only a few days before the COVID-19 pandemic struck, which meant that many of the state’s casinos couldn’t take advantage of the new regulations. It was this unfortunate timing that led to the accelerated approval of online sports betting in Michigan.
Yes, you may participate in college sports betting in the state of Michigan, but you may only bet on NCAA Division I sports. Player prop bets are also prohibited on college events. Since Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed the “Lawful Sports Betting Act” into law, sports bettors in Michigan can place wagers on most major league and international professional sports, as well as college sports, at either brick-and-mortar sportsbooks such as the MGM Grand Detroit or by using BetMGM’s mobile online sports betting app.
Michigan is home to some of the most popular professional sports teams and boasts incredibly competitive collegiate sports programs. The most popular sports that bettors can wager on include:
Michigan has three large commercial casinos and 23 tribal casinos, all permitted to offer sports betting to their customers. The MGM Grand Detroit is the best brick-and-mortar option for in-person sports betting, and BetMGM’s online sportsbook is the place to be if you want to place bets from anywhere within Michigan state limits.
