US.- DraftKings has partnered with Bay Mills Resort & Casino to open a temporary retail sportsbook at Bay Mills Resorts & Casino in Brimley. The temporary venue is due to open on June 22 and the permanent venue with expanded amenities in the autumn.
Michigan is the seventh state to announce a DraftKings-branded retail sportsbook, joining Colorado, Iowa, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey and New York.
Ezra Kucharz, DraftKings’ chief business officer, said: “Through a commitment to provide customers with a premier sports betting experience, DraftKings is happy to partner with Bay Mills Resort & Casino. The Great Lakes State presents a number of gaming opportunities and we look forward to collaborating with Bay Mills to provide residents with the best-in-class experience DraftKings is known for.”
Bryan Newland, tribal chairman for the Bay Mills Indian Community, added: “We are excited about our new partnership with DraftKings. Expanding on what entertainment options we can offer at Michigan’s longest operating gaming facility is always our goal. Our new on-site DraftKings Sportsbook will be one more great reason for Michiganders to vacation with us in the Upper Peninsula.”
DraftKings recently announced a collaboration with BetBlocker, a responsible gaming and safer play charity, to use its software. The collaboration aims to advance awareness of, and access to, BetBlocker’s software. Players can use BetBlocker to set restrictions on gaming activities across all devices at no cost. The restrictions apply to thousands of gaming sites, whether regulated or not.
