GAN will provide its online casino platform to the tribe’s five Kewadin casino properties.
The company will also offer its services to an existing casino operator that has requested anonymity pending Michigan regulatory approvals.
Jeff Berman, Chief Commercial Officer of GAN, said: “Michigan has long represented an attractive market with both Internet sports and Internet casino gaming now regulated. Our technical expertise and ‘day one’ experience in multiple U.S. Internet gambling markets will enable the Sault Tribe to capture their share of the online opportunity and we thank them for their trust in forming this relationship with GAN and our major U.S. casino operator client whose identity will be confirmed in due course.”
Michigan’s internet gambling market is projected to produce $377m in gross operator revenue in its first 12 months according to GAN.
Allen Kerridge, CEO of Kewadin Gaming Authority, said: “The Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians is excited to take this important step with GAN and our mutual partner to bring both retail sports to our consumers at our five casino locations in short course, in addition to Internet gaming casino on day-one when first allowed by the State of Michigan.”
