Following its acquisition of the US assets of 888 Holdings, Hard Rock has been mentioned as the next online casino platform in Michigan. Hard Rock will not, however, inevitably visit the Great Lakes State.

If Hard Rock wants to open up shop in the state, it must submit an application for its own license, according to the Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB).

Since Sports Illustrated MI and 888 have left the state, the license is still available, which means Hard Rock may easily become the newest online casino in Michigan.

What is Required by Hard Rock to Join the Great Lakes State Online Gambling Industry?

It seems probable that the next company to join the Michigan online gaming industry will be Hard Rock. That became evident last week when the business acquired 888 US assets.

Sports Illustrated and 888 said last month that they were severing their connections, thus withdrawing from the US gaming sector.

The operator is clearly considering Michigan as its next state, as seen by Hard Rock’s purchase. The business is holding its cards close to the vest, however. The media was not given any timeframe or information on a Michigan entry by a Hard Rock representative.

Lisa Keith, the MGCB Public Information Officer, did not possess a timeframe either. She did clarify that Hard Rock will not get the Sports Illustrated/888 license by default. She said that when the application procedure is over, they would need to apply for a license separately from 888/SI’s license and get Board approval.

It is expected that Hard Rock will collaborate with the open license of Hannahville Casino.
