Earlier today, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed bipartisan House Bills into law that legalized internet gaming and sports betting through Michigan casinos. Bay Mills Resort and Casinos is excited about the opportunities presented by this legislation.

“These new opportunities will modernize our gaming business and enable BMRC to offer exciting new games to our customers,” said Bay Mills Resort and Casinos General Manager Richard LeBlanc. “As the founders of the first casino in the state of Michigan, this is exciting new business territory we are entering into.”

The legislation will benefit not only Bay Mills Indian Community, but it will also impact the surrounding community in terms of job growth.

“We would like to thank Gov. Whitmer, House Speaker Lee Chatfield, and Sen. Wayne Schmidt for their work on this legislation,” said Bay Mills Tribal Chairman Bryan Newland. “These laws were crafted in a way that will benefit not only tribes, but also communities across northern Michigan.”

BMRC plans to hit the ground running and will be announcing new gaming opportunities in the near future.
