As a B2B sports betting provider, OpenBet will facilitate the launch of the retail sportsbook created in collaboration between 888 and Sports Illustrated Sportsbook.

The initial partnership between the two companies was founded in 2021, with the digital version of the sportsbook released soon afterwards.

The retail sportsbook will be located at Michigan’s Island Resort & Casino, which will be powered by OpenBet technology.

OpenBet will provide the software for the counters, self-service kiosks and the betting markets through the OpenBet Trading System.

Howard Mittman, 888 Holdings US President, added: “Our alliance with OpenBet to power Sports Illustrated Sportsbook, celebrated with this launch, paints a promising future for the retail betting landscape in Michigan.
