Fanatics Betting and Gaming (FBG), a subsidiary of Fanatics Holdings, a global digital sports platform, launched its sportsbook and casino in Michigan last week. The Michigan debut follows recent launches in Pennsylvania and Vermont in January and a launch in Iowa in February this year. 

Michigan has become the thirteenth and third state where Fantatics has a presence with its sportsbook and casino, respectively. The mobile sportsbook is available in Colorado, Connecticut, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. In addition, Fanatics in-person sports betting venues operate in West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Fanatics mobile casino is now available in three out of the six US states where iGaming is legal: Michigan, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.  

FBG started an acquisition spree in August 2023 when it bought the US division of Australian sportsbook operator PointsBet. Michigan sports bettors and casino players can download the Fanatics app, available for Android and iOS devices and licensed by the Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB)

Michiganders that have previously had an active PointsBet account in the state will be migrated seamlessly to the Fanatics platform, with their customer name, password, rewards points, account balance and responsible gambling preferences now available on the Fanatics sportsbook and casino. 

Fanatics customers in Michigan enjoy a state-of-the-art app with a unique design for each operating system, offering better speed, connectivity, and navigation experience. Michigan casino customers who wager on Fanatics Casino earn cashback on bets, spins, and card hands. Points convert to FanCash, which can be used for bonus play, merchandise, and other benefits. 

Fanatics Casino MI offers a wide range of popular games powered by top software providers like IGT PlayDigital. Popular titles include Cleopatra, Fortune Coin, Cash Eruption, and a full suite of MegaJackpotsTM games.

Light & Wonder is another premier software provider that powers the Fanatics Michigan casino library. MI players can play hit titles like 88 Fortunes, Jin Ji Bao, Endless Treasures, Dancing Drums Explosion, China Street, and many others. The Fanatics Game Studios offer Michigan casino players exclusive games that cannot be found elsewhere, like the Fanatics Blackjack game that was developed in partnership with Boom Entertainment.  

Fanatics Michigan also partnered with Evolution Gaming to provide MI players with immersive live-dealer blackjack, roulette, baccarat, and poker variants. There are also award-winning titles like Lightning Roulette, game shows, and more. Live-dealer games take place in a live studio, with actual game tables and human dealers. The games are streamed in real-time to players, who can place bets, watch the game unfold, and interact with the dealers and fellow players via chat.
