Whether you’re a Red Wings fan, prefer the Michigan vs. Michigan State rivalry, or more closely follow professional golf, sports betting allows fans a fun way to engage in their favorite games.
The launch of legal sports betting last year has Michiganders enthusiastically moving to the regulated market. Since sports betting went live in 2020, sports fans in Michigan have wagered $2 billion and the state reached $1 billion in online wagers in just four months after mobile betting launched this year — faster than any other state in the country.
Beyond the fun of giving fans a new, immersive experience, legal sports betting is paying back into the community through tax revenue supporting everything from parks, schools, public safety programs, fire departments and other local improvements.
Sports betting has grown exponentially since 2018 — it’s now legal in 31 other states and Washington, D.C. as well as in Michigan.
