Golden Nugget Updates Online Casino, Closes Online Sportsbook in Michigan
There’s another online sportsbook down in Michigan. A sportsbook was not included in the most current version of Golden Nugget Casino’s online casino app.
Golden Nugget has announced that it would no longer provide a sportsbook in Michigan, so it wasn’t just an error. Ojibwa Casinos can no longer use Michigan as an online sportsbook, leaving the state with only 13 online sportsbooks. But Golden Nugget Online Casino in MI is still in place and even got an update.
Golden Nugget Users are Being Directed to DraftKings Sportsbook
DraftKings finalized the purchase of Golden Nugget back in May of 2022. Although the two have previously collaborated to provide exclusive promotions in Michigan, Golden Nugget is now giving DraftKings exclusive control over sports betting.
When attempting to locate the sportsbook on the Golden Nugget casino app after its upgrade, the following was discovered.
West Virginia and Michigan residents will no longer be able to use Golden Nugget Online Sportsbook after the transition to the new Golden Nugget Online Gaming experience. Nonetheless, gamers can make use of the company’s partner, DraftKings Sportsbook, in West Virginia and Michigan to enjoy the sportsbook experience. Gamers have two options: visit the DraftKings Sportsbook website or download the DraftKings Sportsbook app. To place a bet on the DraftKings Sportsbook in the states of West Virginia and Michigan, you must first register an account.
There are now only 13 online sportsbook options available in Michigan, after the closure of Fox Bet Sportsbook’s operations last summer.
