Michigan Gaming Control Board Grants Genius Sports Group Online Betting Supply License

By January 26, 2021 No Comments

Genius Sports Group (“GSG” or “Genius”) announced today that the Michigan Gaming Control Board, the state regulator overseeing the gaming industry in the U.S.’s 10th most populous state, granted Genius Sports Group an online sports betting supply license.

The license enables Genius Sports Group companies Betgenius and Genius Sports Media to power the sportsbook and marketing operations of licensed betting operators in Michigan’s newly legalized sports wagering market.

“Across the U.S., states are recognizing the potential of online sports betting. The launch of online sports wagering in Michigan and Virginia is the latest evidence of the significant commercial and regulatory tailwinds propelling our industry,” said Jack Davison, Chief Commercial Officer of Genius Sports. “As more states build momentum toward legalization, Genius will continue preparing to quickly obtain state licenses so that we can support our sportsbook partners in capturing market share from day one.”

With the launch of Michigan’s sports betting market, Genius is now live in eleven U.S. states.
