As of this week, PokerStars is now live in Michigan, the first online poker room to launch in the state.
Online casinos now legal in Michigan
Last year, state legislators legalized online gambling in Michigan. The first online casinos and sports betting sites went live two weeks ago.
This week, the Wolverine state welcomes both PokerStars and Fox Bet.
Both brands are licensed through a deal with the Odawa Casino, which is operated by the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians.
Fox Bet chief executive, Kip Levin stated, “The key differentiators for us have always been our valued partnership with the Fox Corporation and the strength of our industry-leading Fox Bet Super 6 product combined with the PokerStars business and we plan to lean into these unique assets as we launch in Michigan.”
He added, “Behind FOX Bet Sportsbook, PokerStars…customers create one account for all three apps, unlocking a wide variety of exciting and entertaining options to supercharge the experience for our Michigan audience.”
Grab your welcome bonuses
Because these two online casinos owned and operated by the same company, players can expect the same welcome bonus at each online casino.
Your account works as one account that can be used at both casinos, so this welcome bonus is only good upon your initial sign up regardless of which online casino you choose first.
New players can expect to receive $30 in free play to be used on any game. Players will need to deposit at least $20 into their account in order to receive this bonus.
Players can also opt-in to a $1500 first deposit bonus. This specific bonus comes as three separate $500 deposits. This is a 100% match bonus, meaning however much a player deposits in their account (up to $500) the online casino will deposit matching bonus funds.
We always recommend that all players fully read all terms and conditions attached to any bonus before opting into it. This will give you a heads up on any time restraints and wagering requirements that may be attached.

Each of these online casinos also offer their own welcome bonuses for Michigan players, with some of them offering special promos to celebrate their initial release in the state.
Michigan players should expect to see more great bonuses coming their way as more casinos go online throughout the state.
