Late last week CDI also unveiled its new BetAmerica Sportsbook at the Island Resort & Casino in Harris, Michigan. Through a partnership with Hannahville Indian Community, the sportsbook features 14 self-service betting terminals and two betting windows.
“We are excited that guests of the Island Resort & Casino will be able to enjoy a state-of-the-art sports wagering experience,” continued Mudd. “Sports fans in Michigan will be able to access the best in sports betting, including live in-play betting as well as engaging and unique promotions at our BetAmerica Sportsbook.”

“The BetAmerica Sportsbook is a fantastic addition to our gaming options and combined with our other entertainment opportunities - including two 18-hole championship golf courses - it provides another great reason for people to visit.”
In both Colorado and Michigan, BetAmerica plans to launch an online sportsbook and iGaming platform in the near future, subject to regulatory approvals.
