Golden Nugget Strikes Michigan iGaming Agreement With Casino

One of the New Jersey’s top online gaming providers has made a move to enter the Michigan iGaming market.

Golden Nugget Online Gaming has struck a deal with the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community to provide Michigan online gaming options via the Ojibwa Casino, Golden Nugget announced Thursday in a news release.

It’s not known when the Golden Nugget online gaming products will be available for players in Michigan. The state legalized online gaming and online poker late in 2019 with the intent of activating the games at some point this year.

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed both sports betting and online gaming into law in December 2019. Revenue made in the state from iGaming and sports betting are earmarked toward the School Aid Fund and the First Responder Presumed Coverage Fund, to benefit first responders who have developed certain types of cancer as well as the general student population.

The state has been adding options for bettors since then. For instance, Michigan legal sports betting began on March 11 at Detroit’s three commercial emporiums – Greektown Casino, MotorCity Casino and MGM Grand Detroit. But within days, the coronavirus pandemic shut down both those casinos and the sporting events that people came there to bet on.

The Michigan Gaming Control Board started accepting supplier licensing forms for online gaming in May, a step toward making the games available for state residents or visitors within the state’s geofencing.

The news out of Michigan is part of continuing developments in the American online gaming market. This week, West Virginia became the fourth state with online gaming options when DraftKings launched its line of iGaming options in the state.

Michigan iGaming Part of Golden Nugget’s Ambitions

Golden Nugget Online Gaming, recently purchased by Houston Rockets owner Tillman Fertitta, announced in June that it would go public on the Nasdaq market.

Golden Nugget is a top supplier of games for the New Jersey market and has designs on expanding its online gaming presence in states where and when the practice becomes legal.

This February, Golden Nugget agreed to a deal with Scientific Games to provide SG’s products in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
