DraftKings to Open Temporary Book at Bay Mills

American sportsbetting group DraftKings is gearing up to open its temporary sportsbook at Bay Mills Resorts & Casino in Brimley, Michigan on June 22nd.

The launch will see Michigan becoming the seventh state in which DraftKings has a retail sportsbook, with other retail books found in New Jersey, New York, Iowa, New Hampshire, Colorado, and Mississippi. The temporary venue will allow players to place wagers via kiosks and windows, and will be in place until a more permanent book launches this fall.

"Through a commitment to provide customers with a premier sports betting experience, DraftKings is happy to partner with Bay Mills Resort & Casino," said DraftKings Chief Business Officer Ezra Kucharz. "The Great Lakes State presents a number of gaming opportunities and we look forward to collaborating with Bay Mills to provide residents with the best-in-class experience DraftKings is known for."

Bay Mills Tribal Chairman Bryan Newland also commented, adding: "We are excited about our new partnership with DraftKings. Expanding on what entertainment options we can offer at Michigan's longest operating gaming facility is always our goal. Our new on-site DraftKings Sportsbook will be one more great reason for Michiganders to vacation with us in the Upper Peninsula."

As someone from Michigan, this casino is so far out of the way of anything meaningful, it's crazy to think that there's people that will go to the spot. I'm shocked DraftKings found them worthy of installing a sportsbook.
