The recent approval by the Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB) is big news, positioning 888‘s VHL Michigan subsidiary as the Hannahville tribe’s new platform provider. This opens up a world of possibilities for the tribe and its customers, who will now have access to Sports Illustrated’s online sports betting product.
It’s an exciting step forward for MGCB, as well, which takes on an important role in overseeing these provisions: setting gaming regulations, taxation/fee structures, and making sure any organization obtaining a state license can meet all required criteria. The move is certainly one that should be celebrated across the board!
Hannahville Indian Community’s tribe Forefront Of Native American Progress
The Hannahville Indian Community recently announced an agreement with 888 Holdings to provide its members access to online gaming and sports betting services. Following the withdrawal of its previous platform provider, TwinSpires, in 2022, the tribe opted for a new partner to ensure its citizens can freely engage in these activities.
To protect the rights of Michigan’s inhabitants and prevent any potential risks, licensed operators offering such services now follow a strict governing framework designed by the tribal government. By doing so, they ensure that these types of practices remain safe and that everyone can enjoy the games responsibly while still having the chance to win some extra money if they are lucky!
