Sports Betting Legislation in the State of Michigan

A delegation of representatives from NHBP and FireKeepers Casino Hotel was honored to join Governor Gretchen Whitmer in a signing ceremony, marking the recent legalization of sports betting and online gaming in the state of Michigan.

This recently-signed legislation will help to create new opportunities for the NHBP Tribal Community, as well as both the Native American and non-Native communities across Michigan, to continue to strive to provide for our next Seven Generations.
