In partnership with the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians, Caesars Entertainment has agreed to acquire the operations of WynnBET’s Michigan igaming business.


The agreement, which is pending regulatory approvals, will give Caesars access to the Sault Tribe’s igaming skins, which will enable the company to operate additional digital brands in Michigan.

Both Caesars and Wynn will receive non-cash consideration, including extinguishment, reductions and assignment of certain contractual obligations related to both parties’ businesses.

“As we continue to grow our igaming franchise, the assumption of WynnBET’s igaming operations in Michigan allows us to tap into a significant market and customer base, providing a crucial step forward in growing our digital products and offering players more ways to play,” said Matt Sunderland, SVP and chief igaming officer for Caesars Entertainment.
