Barstool Sportsbook app approved to launch in Michigan
Penn National Gaming and the Michigan Gaming Control Board has approved the Company’s applications to offer online sports wagering and iCasino products in Michigan.
Penn National intends to officially launch its Barstool Sportsbook mobile app on iOS and android, as well as desktop and its iCasino products will follow shortly thereafter, subject to final regulatory approvals.
This follows the opening of the Company’s retail Barstool Sportsbook at Greektown Casino Hotel in downtown Detroit on December 23, 2020.
“This is an exciting time to be launching our online Barstool Sportsbook in Michigan,” said Jay Snowden, President and CEO of Penn National. “We have been incredibly pleased with the success of the mobile app since launching in Pennsylvania in September.
Our customers have thoroughly enjoyed engaging with Dave Portnoy, Dan ‘Big Cat’ Katz and other Barstool fan favorites, and we expect more of the same in Michigan. As the only gaming operator with a fully integrated sports media and entertainment partner, Penn can provide our customers the opportunity to interact with Barstool personalities online and also in-person at our new Barstool Sportsbook at Greektown.”
