FanDuel Group has gone live in Michigan in collaboration with MotorCity Casino with the launch of a fully integrated, real money online gaming experience for residents and visitors in the state. The FanDuel Sportsbook & Casino app and the standalone FanDuel Casino app are both available for iOS and Android. 

As a complement to the firm’s fantasy sports app, customers in Michigan can now use fantasy sports, sportsbook and casino winnings interchangeably between products.

Michigan marks the tenth state where FanDuel offers mobile sports betting, joining New Jersey, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Tennessee and Virginia. The online sports betting launch adds another dimension to the FanDuel Sportsbook at MotorCity Casino in Detroit that opened in March 2020.  It also marks the third state where FanDuel offers mobile casino games, alongside New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

The FanDuel Sportsbook app will feature a special risk-free first bet up to $1,000 for new customers in Michigan with the operator refunding the amount of a customer’s first wager, up to $1,000, within 72 hours.  

In Michigan, FanDuel will also offer casino games via two mobile apps – the standalone FanDuel Casino app, and within the “casino lobby” of the FanDuel Sportsbook app. New players can play their first day risk-free up to $200 with refunds on any losses up to $200 during the first 24 hours of placing their first casino wager (losses refunded as casino site credit).   

The standalone FanDuel Casino, also in collaboration with MotorCity Casino, is available for download on iOS and Android or via web at casino.fanduel.com. New customers can sign up for an account or use their FanDuel Sportsbook account or daily fantasy account to login and play. The FanDuel Casino app has an expanded library featuring slots, blackjack games, roulette games, video poker games and baccarat games.
