Barstool and Greektown Casino have gone live in Michigan with their online casino game offerings. The casino follows Barstool’s sportsbook launch, which made its debut along with nine other operators on Jan. 22.

“I want to thank the Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB) and its staff for their time and effort in reviewing and approving our applications,” Jay Snowden, president and CEO of Penn National Gaming, said in a media release. “In addition, I want to thank our team at Penn Interactive, our great partners at Barstool Sports, and our risk management and platform providers, Kambi and White Hat Gaming, for their many months of hard work and collaboration. We’re off to a fast start in 2021 and look forward to continuing our Company’s evolution into the leading omni-channel provider of retail and online gaming, live racing and sports betting entertainment."

Barstool’s Michigan online casino was not ready at the time of Michigan's Jan. 22 launch. But a week later on Jan. 29, the MGCB announced Barstool was approved to launch its online casino platform. It went live on Tuesday.
