Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort announced Tuesday a new partnership with Kambi Group and GAN to extend its reach into the online gaming and sports betting industries, by means of the launch of an online “Eagle Casino & Sports” platform in early 2022. This will allow users to play online games and to access a sportsbook. Games that will be available online will include both slots and table games.
Kambi will be the multi-channel sportsbook partner for the project, while GAN will provide a platform for the integration of online games and the sportsbook. “Together they will provide a great experience for players”, Soaring Eagle said in a statement.
In a press release, Kambi Group spoke about the terms of the deal, and explained that the Saginaw Chippewa Gaming Enterprises will integrate its sportsbook platform for on-property rollouts at Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort and Saganing Eagles Landing Casino & Hotel, in addition to launching the online sportsbook.
GAN added that it will be working to design and develop and iGaming and sports betting front-end web application together with Soaring Eagle for both Apple iOS and Android systems.
Online casino gaming and sports betting has been legal in Michigan since January 2021 after Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed bipartisan legislation allowing it in 2019, in a unique legislation that incorporates both commercial and tribal casinos to its framework.
