Gambling operator PointsBet has announced its first igaming launch in the US, going live with its proprietary platform in Michigan.
Michigan sets online handle record for January

Players in the US state will now have access to PointsBet’s selection of online casino games, after the operator secured approval from the Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB).

PointsBet already operates online sports betting in the state, via an approved partnership with the Lac Vieux Desert tribe.

“Over the past 18 months we have assembled a highly experienced igaming team, which has built our in-house proprietary igaming platform and administrative tools, and I am thrilled to announce our inaugural launch in Michigan,” PointsBet chief executive and managing director Sam Swanell said.
