Those in Michigan have long been able to bet with offshore sportsbooks.

The in-state licensed wagering sites will be able to offer apps and a more extensive array of payment options, but will prohibit those under the age of 21 (offshore gambling sites allow those 18 and up) and will not offer political betting.

The Michigan Gaming Control Board announced Tuesday that it approved the first nine casinos and their online platform partners to launch at that time, with additional approvals expected in coming days.

The Legislature and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer legalized internet gambling and sports betting in December 2019, and regulators spent all of last year devising rules and ways to monitor and license the new platforms.

The nine platforms and their associated operators are:

FanDuel, for MotorCity Casino

BetMGM/Roar Digital, for MGM Grand Detroit

Penn Sports Interactive/ Barstool Sportsbook, for Greektown Casino

DraftKings, for the Bay Mills Indian Community

William Hill, for the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians

TwinSpires, for the Hannahville Indian Community

Golden Nugget Online Gaming, for the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community

Rush Street, for the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians

Wynn, for the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians
