Sault Tribe starts online gaming
SAULT STE. MARIE — The Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians and Kewadin Casinos announced that after more than a year of work on regulations and review, the Michigan Gaming Control Board has authorized the Sault Tribe to begin online sports betting and online gaming at noon today.
Kewadin Casinos, along with partner WynnBET, launched the “brick and mortar” Sportsbook operation at all five Kewadin Casinos locations in December. The online sports betting and gaming will be available via desktop web, mobile web and Apple iOS and Android apps beginning at noon.
“With the State of Michigan’s announcement today regarding the opening of online sports betting and online gaming, we are happy to see the final stages of our partnership with Wynn Resorts come to fruition,” Sault Tribe EDC Director Joel Schultz said in a release. “Our experience preparing for this date gives us great appreciation for the professionalism and knowledge Wynn Resorts brings to the table. We know these assets will provide our guests with an exceptional online gaming and betting experience.
“Our staff is very appreciative of the work put in by Wynn, GAN, our legal team and the Board of Directors.”
