What do I need to do to join a sportsbook in Michigan?

Currently, there are very few restrictions to joining a sportsbook in Michigan. You must be a Lions fan... No, we’re just kidding! We wouldn’t wish that upon you if you weren't already.

As we mentioned above, you’ll need to register online before you can deposit money into your account and wager. This is to validate your identity and sports betting account.

You must also enable geolocation if you want to bet on sports. Michigan sportsbooks must be able to verify you are in fact within the state before any wager is placed. 

Most books will ask to use your location when you first open their betting app, just make sure you allow it, otherwise you won’t be able to bet.

If you were to travel to a state where sports betting is legal, you would be able to use your sportsbook app — unless it is state-specific. If that is the case, you may need to download the other state’s version once within their lines. If your sportsbook is universal, then you’ll be able to bet online, no extra downloads and no problems!

Good news, too, if you’re visiting Michigan, you’re able to bet so long as you register online. If you’re within state lines, you’re welcome to bet in Wolverine country.
