Fanatics Launches Sportsbook & Casino in Michigan, Expanding US Presence

Fanatics Betting and Gaming, the sports wagering wing of global digital sports platform Fanatics Holdings Inc, has made a significant leap in its US market expansion with the launch of Fanatics Sportsbook & Casino in Michigan. This marks the entry of Fanatics into its thirteenth state, further solidifying its presence in the competitive sports betting landscape. The innovative platform, now available for iOS and Android users in Michigan, represents the latest milestone in Fanatics’ strategic expansion, following recent forays into Pennsylvania, Vermont, and Iowa.

In a move that underscores its commitment to enhancing customer experience, Fanatics has seamlessly migrated the account details of PointsBet customers in Michigan to the Fanatics Sportsbook platform. This strategic acquisition and integration process not only consolidates Fanatics’ market position but also ensures a smooth transition for PointsBet users, who will find their usernames, passwords, account balances, rewards points, and responsible gaming settings transferred to the Fanatics Sportsbook.

The Fanatics Sportsbook app, built natively for iOS and Android, offers an unrivaled user experience with swift sign-up processes, easy betting, and transparent withdrawals. It introduces unique features such as FanCash, which rewards customers with up to 5% of their wager back for use on bonus bets or purchases on Fanatics.com, and a Discover feed that personalizes content delivery according to user preferences.

Complementing the sportsbook, Fanatics Betting and Gaming is also unveiling its online casino within the app. The Fanatics Casino promises a rich selection of games, from classics like roulette, slots, and blackjack to live casino experiences in partnership with Evolution. The casino will also feature games from IGT PlayDigital and Light & Wonder, including popular titles such as Cash Eruption™, Fortune Coin™, Cleopatra™, and many more.

This launch in Michigan is just the beginning of an ambitious rollout plan, with Fanatics Sportsbook aiming to further expand its footprint across the US. Licensed through the Lac Vieux Desert Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians, Fanatics enters one of the US’s most mature markets, ready to compete with 14 existing betting apps in Michigan. Fanatics Sportsbook is not only enhancing the sports betting ecosystem but also setting new standards for online casino gaming, promising an exciting future for Michigan’s bettors.

As Fanatics continues to transition its sports betting platforms in states where PointsBet previously operated, it is poised to launch in North Carolina next month, adding another state to its growing portfolio. This strategic expansion reflects Fanatics’ vision to dominate the digital sports betting and casino gaming space, offering unparalleled experiences to sports fans and bettors across the United States.
