888 Holdings Has Been Authorized by the MGCB to Serve as the Hannahville Tribe’s Online Casino Provider
The MGCB has authorized 888 Holdings‘ VHL Michigan LLC to be Hannahville Indian Community‘s online casino gaming’s new platform provider for the site operating under the Sports Illustrated name, Effective February 7, at 8 AM. The tribe manages the Island Resort and Casino in Harris, MI.
After TwinSpires, the pioneering supplier of sports betting and online gaming platforms declared its intention to cease operation, the Hannahville tribe reached a deal with 888 Holdings. On September 7, 2022, VHL Michigan LLC, a subsidiary of 888 Holdings, started offering online sports betting to the tribe. TwinSpires no longer provides online gaming or sports betting services in Michigan.
The executive director of the MGCB, Henry Williams, wishes the Hannahville tribe great success as they are once more able to provide their players with both online sports betting and online gaming in Michigan.
The Hannahville Indian Community was one of the first 10 licensees granted permission by the MGCB to introduce both types of iGaming in Michigan on January 22, 2021. The MGCB approved the state’s fifteenth sports betting and online gaming provider in April 2022. In Michigan, only commercial casinos and tribes with federal recognition are eligible for licenses.
