To start off, we would like to say that BetAmerica is an online sportsbook and casino that operates in several states in the US. Well, technically speaking our first statement is not factually true. This simply necessitated by the fact that BetAmerica has since rebranded and has a new name now. The new name is Twin Spires. While this is the case, we will still go with the old name ‘BetAmerica’ as this is the brand name that is most popular with punters.
BetAmerica rebranded late last year (2020) and the first BetAmerica ‘establishment’ to have the new name was the BetAmerica Michigan sportsbook. BetAmerica Michigan was quickly rebranded as the operators behind this online sportsbook wanted the new name to be in use by the time the online sportsbook went live in the state. Their plan did work out smoothly as BetAmerica successfully launched in the state of Michigan for the very first time using the brand name Twin Spires. However, just like other states, the name BetAmerica is still loved by many hence instead of calling it Twin Spires Michigan, they refer to it as BetAmerica Michigan – so too are we!
When did Twinspires Launch in Michigan
Most online sportsbooks that operate in the US operate solely as online sportsbooks. This however is not the case with BetAmerica. When BetAmerica launched in the state of Michigan, it launched as both a retail brick and mortar sportsbook as well as online. Players in the state were thus provided with two options when it comes to settling at BetAmerica. They could visit the retail sportsbook at Island Resort & Casino in Harris or simply choose to play in the comfort of their own homes or on the go using their mobile devices. Both the retail sportsbook and online sportsbook launched on the very same day that is, 28 September, 2020.
BetAmerica’ Partnering Land Based Casinos in Michigan
One of the requirements put in place by the state of Michigan more specifically the Michigan Gaming Control Board – the institution handling all applications from prospective online gambling operators required them to establish partnerships with already existing land based casinos in the state before they can be granted licenses. On this front, BetAmerica chose to partner with the Island Resort & Casino in Harris. This partnership however did not just enable BetAmerica to go live in the state but it also allowed BetAmerica to open a retail sportsbook at the resort.

These range from standard moneyline, spreads, totals, to win margins and overtime plays among many others.
