It’s lucky number 13 for Fanatics Sportsbook.

Fanatics Betting and Gaming announced today that Fanatics Sportsbook is now live in Michigan, its 13th live state.

Fanatics Casino also launched today in Michigan, its third live state in the country.

Fanatics Sportsbook Now Live

Fanatics Betting and Gaming gained access to Michigan through the company’s acquisition of PointsBet last year. Michigan PointsBet customers were notified earlier in the week of the transition and each customer’s username, password, account balance, reward points, and responsible gaming settings have been migrated to Fanatics Sportsbook.

Michigan sports bettors can now download the sportsbook and casino app in the state.

It’s the second state Fanatics has launched in this month, as the sportsbook launched in Iowa on Feb. 6.

The Fanatics Sportsbook is available online in the following states:

  • Colorado
  • Connecticut
  • Iowa
  • Kentucky
  • Maryland
  • Massachusetts
  • Michigan
  • Ohio
  • Pennsylvania
  • Tennessee
  • Vermont
  • Virginia
  • West Virginia

Fanatics Sportsbook also has 14 retail locations, including retail sportsbooks outside of Progressive Field and Nationwide Arena and the only sportsbook inside an NFL stadium at FedExField. Fanatics Betting and Gaming is headquartered in New York.

Following today’s casino launch in Michigan, Fanatics Casino is currently also available in Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Fanatics Casino is embedded in the Fanatics Sportsbook app.

Six More States Waiting for Fanatics Transition

Fanatics Betting and Gaming is still waiting for the transition of six additional states from PointsBet after it acquired the operator’s North American assets this past May for $150 million.

Through the deal, Fanatics Betting and Gaming gained access to PointsBet’s sports betting licenses in 14 states. Only six states have yet to be turned over to Fanatics Betting and Gaming. They are as follows:

  • Indiana
  • Kansas
  • Louisiana
  • New York
  • New Jersey
  • Wyoming

New York and New Jersey will be the largest sports betting markets Fanatics Betting and Gaming will have access to following the transition. There is no timeline for the sportsbook going live in either of these states.

According to details of the acquisition, PointsBet must turn over all of its assets to Fanatics Betting and Gaming by May.
