- The Michigan Gaming Control Board in association with the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Native Americans announced they will be bringing online gaming and betting to its Four Winds Casino brand.
- The new iGaming brand will only improve upon the total tax revenue of the state, which is expected to generate $90 million in tax revenue in 2021.
DETROIT, Mich. – The continuing push of legal online gaming in Michigan has received a major boost this week.
In a new partnership and agreement between the Michigan Gaming Control Board and the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Native Americans, the Four Winds Casino will begin offering their own online gaming and betting.
This new agreement, which is already in effect as of the time of writing, will allow the platform to bring in massive amounts of tax revenue to the already bolstered haul of Michigan gaming platforms.
The Four Winds Casino, which is owned by the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Native Americans, will be the 12th of such casinos in the state to offer online betting.
This move comes in wake of a strong push from the state to make online gaming and betting in general, a major attraction and money maker. Expectations for 2021 have Michigan looking to bring in over $90 million in tax revenue from gaming and sports betting alone.
“We welcome the addition of Four Winds Casinos and Pala Interactive to Michigan’s growing online gaming and sports wagering market,” said Richard S. Kalm, executive director of the Michigan Gaming Control Board. “Their participation will generate revenue to support education, economic development, and the Pokagon Band’s tribal community.”
Fans and gaming enthusiasts in the state will now be able to bet through the Four Winds Casino either online or on their phones. It is unclear whether the platform will have a dedicated app for mobile users, or simply have bettors log in through their phone’s internet browser.
The new addition to the arsenal of Michigan online betting options make Michigan one of the most accessible states in the US in terms of sports betting and gaming.
As always, residents in the state are still able to use many of the other online gaming outlets that are available in the state.
