DraftKings will team with Bay Mills Resort Casino in a market-access deal that will bring its mobile sportsbook to Michigan.

Michigan will become the eighth state to allow legal wagering through the DraftKings Sportsbook, joining Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, the company announced Thursday.

"Through a commitment to provide customers with a premier sports betting experience, DraftKings is happy to partner with Bay Mills Resort Casino," Ezra Kucharz, DraftKings' chief business officer, said in a statement.

"The Great Lakes State presents a number of gaming opportunities and we look forward to collaborating with Bay Mills to provide residents with the best-in-class experience DraftKings is known for."

In addition to placing bets via the mobile app, Michigan residents will also be able to wager in person at Bay Mills Resort Casino in Brimley. That will make it the seventh state that will feature a DraftKings-branded retail sportsbook, joining Colorado, Iowa, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey and New York.

"We are excited about our new partnership with DraftKings," Bryan Newland, tribal chairman for the Bay Mills Indian Community, said in a statement. "Expanding on what entertainment options we can offer at Michigan's longest-operating gaming facility is always our goal.

"Our new on-site DraftKings Sportsbook will be one more great reason for Michiganders to vacation with us in the Upper Peninsula."
