Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort announced it will be opening a sportsbook at its Mt. Pleasant flagship hotel in mid-January.
Operated by the The Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe, the tribe is the largest, by revenue, Indian gaming group in Michigan.
The sportsbook’s home will be in the new and improved sports bar, Ascend.
“We will be upgrading Ascend, an already great venue, to accommodate sports betting,” Mike Bean, the CEO of Soaring Eagle, said in a press release. “Changes will include more televisions, betting kiosks, a betting window, and a ticker tape. The improvements will be in phases, initially starting with kiosk betting until the betting window modifications are complete.”
Two other sportsbooks planned as well
The tribe isn’t stopping with Soaring Eagle; it plans on rolling out a sportsbook at its sister casino, the Saganing Eagles Landing Casino & Hotel in Standish and also at The Slot Palace and Bingo Hall in Mount Pleasant.
Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort did not announce, as of yet, who its technology partner will be for the new sportsbook ventures.
