The Soaring Eagle Casino is now online with its real money online casino offerings as well as its mobile and retail sportsbooks.
The casino, in Mount Pleasant, launched its Michigan online sports betting shortly after its retail product, the Ascend Sportsbook, launched April 4. The physical sportsbook opened in time for the men’s NCAA Basketball Tournament final in which Kansas defeated North Carolina.
Now people who participate in Michigan gambling have another online casino and sportsbook option via the Soaring Eagle. According to the Michigan Gaming Control Board it’s the 15th online operator in the state.
Michigan Gaming Control Board Announces Launch
“Michigan now has a full complement of 15 internet gaming and sports betting providers with the authorization of Eagle Casino and Sports,” MGCB executive director Henry Williams said in a media release from the board announcing the launch. “All of Michigan’s federally recognized tribes are offering internet gaming and sports betting. I congratulate the Saginaw Chippewa tribe as they expand their gaming offerings.”
The Eagle Casino and Sports online gaming product has a partnership with GAN as a provider. The playeagle.com website has online slots, table games and more.
Soaring Eagle Largest Casino in Michigan
The Soaring Eagle facility, run by the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan, is the largest of the state’s land-based casinos, offering 210,000 square feet worth of gambling space. The casino’s website says the facility has more than 3,000 slot machines and more than 70 table games.
According to the American Gaming Association, Michigan has 23 tribal casinos scattered throughout the state. Detroit has three commercial casinos, which saw their retail gaming and sports betting revenues rise in March compared to February.
Michigan is one of six states that have online casino options, joining Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Connecticut, Delaware and New Jersey. Those states as well as Nevada have made online poker legal as well.
