It’s official. Michigan has joined the mobile sports betting party, becoming the 10th state in the U.S. with full-scale online betting and registrations — both necessary in becoming a competitive market.

That also means Michiganians are now free to begin signing up and wagering at online sportsbooks, so where should you start?

Here are six sites you can use to start betting on sports legally in the Great Lakes State, with some notes and promotional offers from each to do some early shopping.


6 Best Michigan Sports Betting Sites & Apps

1. BetMGM

The MGM name is certainly a recognizable one as a casino brand, but BetMGM is on its way to earning that status in the U.S. sports betting market, already operating in a number of states.

It offers an intuitive platform, both as a desktop website and mobile app, offers generous bonus offers, and some important, unique rules that favor the bettor, including full payouts for ties in golf finishing position bets.


2. PointsBet

Always looking for creative ways to allow its users more options to bet (and win), PointsBet gets its name from a style of betting it offers known as “points betting.” In short, the more points by which your bet wins, the higher the payout you collect.

PointsBet is also among the most generous sportsbooks when it comes to promotions, keeping users engaged with weekly offers, boosters and more.


3. DraftKings

Thanks to its name recognition and existing user base through daily fantasy sports, DraftKings has been able to play among the leaders in the U.S. sports betting space as well. It’s expanded into every legalized state for online betting in the past 18 months.

DraftKings’ mobile app is among the best the market has to offer, and its bet offerings are among the best as well. It has the largest selection of NFL player props and is the first book in most states to post upcoming college football lines.


4. BetRivers

While maybe not boasting as well-known a name, BetRivers is owned by Rush Street Gaming, which also owns SugarHouse Casino & Sportsbook (in New Jersey and Pennsylvania), as well as other casinos throughout the country.

And although the lack of a big name may take away some of the sleekness of the BetRivers experience, it still offers some can’t-miss new-customer offers, as well as plenty of advantages to its existing users, that makes it a worthy addition to your sportsbook portfolio.


5. William Hill

Steady and reliable, William Hill has established its name in the sports betting world — even overseas it maintains a large presence in the UK — and therefore has less to do to win over customers.

Will Hill is the largest retail sportsbook in the country, and as you might imagine, is also live in several other key states. Along with some of the other sportsbooks listed, it’s got a fast, easy-to-use mobile app to go along with a steady web experience.


6. FanDuel

Like its DFS counterpart in DraftKings, FanDuel got out to hot start in the U.S. and has been building upon it. Thanks to its massive budget, FanDuel can get into states with high barrier to entry, like Tennessee and Illinois.

FanDuel also recently combined its wallets so you can use the same money for DFS and sports betting, a huge attraction for those already in the FanDuel DFS space.

Its biggest downsides are that it can be difficult to find smaller markets like props because they’re buried so far in each game.
