The Soaring Eagle Casino is now online with its Michigan 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 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.
