Good news for all the bettors from Michigan as the FireKeepers Casino will start providing internet wagering and sports betting from Monday onwards. The casino will start its operation at noon after getting approval from the Michigan Gaming Control Board [MGCB]. Individuals who like online betting and sports gambling can do so at the FireKeepers Casino from now on without facing any issues. 

How The Casino Got The Approval?

The Michigan Gaming Control Board authorized the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of Potawatomi Indians and their platform partner NYX Digital. This ultimately helped them to launch the sports wagering and online betting operations under the FireKeepers Casino Hotel. The FireKeeper Casino has become the 13th operator of internet and sports gambling within the state of Michigan. The Play Gun Lake of Gun Lake Casino is an additional authorized operator or the 14th operator who will be responsible only for online casino gaming. 

Few Words From Henry Williams

Apart from that, he also said that the representative of the tribe has provided a lot of support during the development of the laws, which were signed back in 2019. This allowed the federally recognized tribes within the state of Michigan to obtain a license for internet sports betting and online casino gaming. 

Williams ended his statement by saying that this participation will help produce funds for K-12 education and the tribal community Nottawaseppi Huron Band. The revenues will support the tribe’s economic development as well.

What Does FireKeeper’s CEO Have To Say?

The CEO of FireKeepers Casino Hotel, Kathy George, shared her thoughts on this matter. George started by saying all the guests at the casino will be pretty thrilled as they will get the chance to enjoy all their favorite casino games right from their comfort zone. She said that they are pretty excited to introduce a brand-new level of entertainment to all the people in Michigan. 

Relation Between NYX Digital & FireKeepers

NYX Digital and FireKeepers Casino had worked together before and made a self-branded platform. The casino joins two other casinos within Michigan to launch a self-branded product. The Four Winds Casino has launched its self-branded platform, and the Soaring Eagle will do so soon. 

What’s Next?

The FireKeepers Casino will begin its online sports wagering and betting operations for all the bettors out there. The people from Michigan will enjoy themselves and have a wonderful and fun experience. No matter where people are located within the state, they will get the chance to place their bets on casino games and perform sports betting from this particular casino as well.
