Michigan Sports Betting FAQ’s

Given the current state of sports betting in Michigan, it should come as no surprise that we get loads of questions surrounding the state’s policies. The first bets in the state were placed in March of 2020, by May the entire state was shut down due to COVID-19, and sportsbooks/casinos have yet to reopen.

The questions we receive most about sports betting in Michigan are related to online sportsbooks and when they will become available, but expand into the state’s policies and plans for reopening. Find answers to these questions and more below.

Is sports betting legal in Michigan?

Yes, sports betting has been legal in the state of Michigan since December 11, 2019. The first bets were placed in the state of MI in March of 2020.

Is mobile sports betting legal in Michigan?

The plan the state laid out for sports betting was to launch brick-and-mortar sportsbooks in the state’s casinos in March of 2020. This would be followed by online sportsbooks attached to the brick-and-mortar locations in late 2020/early 2021. Sometime in the months following this launch, online and mobile sportsbooks would open up to any operator that obtains a license.

When will online sportsbooks be allowed in MI?

While we do not yet have an official date for online sports betting to arrive in Michigan, the current timeline suggests later this year (2020). That being said, if COVID-19 forces casinos to remain closed the timeline could either be accelerated to serve as a revenue source for the state’s casinos, or it could be slowed down to allow the brick-and-mortar locations more operating time prior to opening the state up to mobile betting.

What are the laws surrounding MI sports betting?

Legal sports betting is going to be a revenue driver for a state that desperately needs it. An operator (sportsbook) will have to pay a $50,000 application fee, $100,000 license fee, and then a $50,000 annual renewal fee. Operators will also be taxed 8.4% on revenue and casinos/sportsbooks located in Detroit will pay an additional 1.25% to the city.

What is the legal age to bet on sports in Michigan?

The legal gambling age for the state of Michigan is 21.

How are deposits and withdrawals handled through mobile sportsbooks?

This is one area that Michigan will be slightly different from most states. During the middle phase of the sports betting rollout, anyone that wishes to bet online in the state of Michigan will need to initially open and fund their account at a physical sportsbook location. The complete rollout of mobile sports betting will allow for mobile deposits and withdrawals. The methods for deposits and withdrawals include Visa/Mastercard, checking account, debit card, PayPal, Western Union, and more.

What sports can you bet on in Michigan?

Michigan sportsbooks will be allowed to accept bets on any sport and any team. This includes all major professional sports, as well as college sports. Michigan’s universities and pro sports teams are also eligible to be bet on in the state.
