After an EXCRUCITAINGLY long wait, online and mobile sports betting is finally here in Michigan.
While in-person wagering at the casinos went live early last year, the ability to put together a parlay on your phone wasn’t a reality until now. Metro Detroit Golfers is thrilled to announce a partnership with DraftKings, one of the premier leaders in the space.
Already known for its daily fantasy games, DraftKings launched a state-of-the-art sportsbook here in Michigan, accessible by downloading the app off of its website. Wagers can be made on NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB contests as well as PGA tournaments, European soccer, NASCAR, UFC events and tennis matches.
Boasting nearly 10 million users worldwide, DraftKings is an American company, not an offshore betting site like other options out there.
“We had a lot of people and companies reach out to us regarding potential sportsbook partnerships” said MDG co-founder Mike Sullivan. “We wanted to align with a company that would provide exclusive perks to MDG and our members while also being a safe and reputable company. DraftKings checks all those boxes.”
When signing up, members should use promo code ‘MDG’ to be eligible for private groups and rooms during every single PGA Tournament and other upcoming major sporting events like the Super Bowl and Daytona 500. Additionally, DraftKings has committed to being behind every MDG charity initiative as well as supporting group outings and other fundraisers.
“DraftKings is a name that everybody already knows and is probably familiar with in our group.” Said MDG co-founder Kyle Bogenschutz. “It’s a major reason why we chose to partner with them. That familiarity allows for our group to already be ready to go and engage with one another on another medium. It will be exciting for our community to get to compete with one another and have a chance to make some real cash while doing it.”
Some of the upcoming promotions will involve members competing against Sully and Bogey directly for a chance to win MDG swag, golf trips and much more. Additionally, those who use code ‘MDG’ when signing up will gain exclusive access to a deposit bonus and Detroit-based teams odds boosts.
“We’re really excited to bring this to our community,” said MDG Head of Creative Timothy Pontzer. “We’re going to run some cool contests where our members can go against Mike and Kyle by picking golfers during PGA events. We have some amazing prizes lined up and are thrilled to be backed by the safe and secure app in DraftKings. It really is another extension of MDG and a way for us to put a little action on the golf and other sports we’re all already watching together and chatting about in the group.”
To download the app, visit draftkings.com/mobileapps. Make sure to use the code ‘MDG’ at signup. Already existing DK members can enter the exclusive contests via links and passwords made available on the Facebook page.
