Barstool is set to launch a sportsbook in Michigan, and the location of that sportsbook has now been announced. The Greektown Casino-Hotel in Detroit made the announcement on Thursday, confirming that Barstool would be behind the sportsbook launch.
Barstool launched a mobile sportsbook in Pennsylvania just a few weeks ago, and the company hinted that more states would be added soon. Fans of Barstool took guesses as to which state might be next on the list, but Michigan was eventually chosen.
The Greektown Casino is owned and operated by Penn National Gaming. Penn National acquired 36 percent interest in Barstool earlier this year, and the two companies have worked together to create a big name in the sports betting industry.
Greektown Casino announced on their Twitter page, and it was clear that bettors in the state of Michigan are excited about the news. There were more than 500 retweets and 2,500 likes for the tweet posted earlier this week.
The casino is hoping to also incorporate live shows or events from Barstool Sports at this location in an effort to gain some popularity. Barstool has a huge following of sports fans throughout the world as the company continues to take a cutting edge look at sports news.
Barstool personalities don’t tend to focus on the sports scene in Michigan currently, but that will change with this new launch.
