NEW YOR -- FOX Bet & PokerStars, the world’s largest and most popular online poker product, and Stars Casino today launch an incredible array of real money online gaming and betting brands in Michigan. From superior sports betting to poker, blackjack and much more, the in-app experience and shared wallet provides consumers with a variety of exciting ways to play and engage, revolutionizing the fan experience.

As the leading operator of online poker in Pennsylvania, PokerStars, grants Michiganders access to its world-class suite of industry-leading daily tournaments, its famed COOP (Championship of Online Poker) series and much more. PokerStars features superior technology, security and has become the first choice of players all over the world. From short, fast-paced online poker cash-games to major Sunday tournaments with large prizes, real and play money games are available around the clock on PokerStars’ safe and award-winning platform. In addition to paving the way with the world’s largest online poker site, FOX Bet Sportsbook and Stars Casino round out a powerful trifecta which will greatly enhance the sports, poker and online betting experience in Michigan.

“The key differentiators for us have always been our valued partnership with the FOX Corporation and the strength of our industry leading FOX Bet Super 6 product combined with the PokerStars business and we plan to lean into these unique assets as we launch in Michigan,” said Kip Levin, FOX Bet CEO. “Behind FOX Bet Sportsbook, PokerStars and Stars Casino, customers create one account for all three apps, unlocking a wide variety of exciting and entertaining options to supercharge the experience for our Michigan audience.”

FOX Bet Sportsbook offers traditional bets as well as in-play and futures betting opportunities, with a wide array of sports betting markets on a huge range of national and international events including NFL, NCAAF, MLB, NBA, NHL, NASCAR, and international golf, tennis and soccer.

FOX Bet Michigan is distinguished by its ability to provide fans with daily betting content and entertainment, developed through a first-of-its-kind national and local media and sports wagering partnership in the United States with FOX Sports. The online sportsbook brings fans closer to the games and teams they love through expert commentary and insights from some of the nation’s most celebrated sports commentators, while also offering engaging promotions and offers.

FOX Bet Live airing weekdays on FS1 offers insights, odds and the definitive national television source of all things sports betting. Michigan-centric editions of FOX Bet Live will continue to air across FOX 2 WJBK in Detroit, FOX 17 in Grand Rapids and FOX 66 in Flint.

To celebrate the launch for new customers, FOX Bet Sportsbook is offering 10x your money if the Kansas City Chiefs or Tampa Bay Buccaneers score a point for the Super Bowl (max bet $10, winnings paid in site credit). The trio of brands are also welcoming new customers in Michigan with an exclusive free $100 in site credit upon account creation. From there, customers can look forward to hundreds of ways to play, including exclusive promotions, enhanced prices, top offers, record-breaking tournaments and prize pools, a daily casino bonus, daily bet boosts and custom bets.

In addition to its real-money offerings, FOX Bet Super 6 is a free-to-play app where users make six predictions about what they think will happen in live games or events. FOX Bet Super 6 has been available nationwide (excluding Washington state) since its debut in September 2019 and boasts over 4 million players who collectively have won nearly $4 million since its launch.

Michigan players can access FOX Bet, PokerStars and Stars Casino to take advantage of the welcome offers and more by downloading the apps via Apple or Android devices.

By the Numbers…

FOX Bet Sportsbook:

Michigan marks the fourth state launch for FOX Bet, which is also available in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Colorado.

In similar fashion to its strong market share in Pennsylvania, FOX Bet Michigan will leverage poker and activate a strong local FOX presence in the state.
