Online Gambling At Bay Mills Resort & Casino
Online gambling first became legal in Michigan in December 2019, with the first waves of apps officially launching on January 22, 2021.
In June 2020, Bay Mills announced a partnership with DraftKings to offer a retail sportsbook, online sportsbook, and online casino gaming. Both the online sportsbook and online casino launched on January 22, 2021.
Bay Mills Resort & Casino History
Bay Mills Resort & Casino was first opened in November 1995 and is both owned and operated by the Bay Mills Indian Community. The resort has a connected hotel with nearly 150 rooms that include lakefront views. While it opened as a traditional casino in the state of Michigan, the casino has modernized with the times.
It now offers a four-table poker room that is separate from the casino floor, since only those over 21 can access that area because drinks are served there. It also offers a 15,000 square-foot area that includes video poker and video slot machines along with the typical table games.
Today, this casino offers a wide selection of slot machines at over 700. It also includes more than a dozen table games for those who prefer that form of gambling. There are five restaurants and bars at the casino for dining and drinking. These include Sacy’s, North Winds Lounge, Back Bay Grill & Games, Chums Café, and the Loft.
In addition to that, Bay Mills Resort & Casino has about 5,000 square feet of event and meeting space, an 18-hole championship golf course, and an RV park. The latter is located right within walking distance of the casino and includes cable television, electric and water hookups, wireless Internet, and restroom and shower facilities.
Bay Mills Resort & Casino Loyalty Program
The loyalty program provided for gamblers at Bay Mills Resort & Casino is called the Funcard Players Club. Joining the program is entirely free and allows you to enjoy free play, the ability to earn points, and complimentary items. Signing up for the program can be done online or at the casino, but your card must be picked up in person with valid photo identification.
There are four tiers of the loyalty program which you can climb as you earn points. These include:
- Lake Michigan – 0 to 2,499 points
- Lake Huron – 2,500 to 14,999 points
- Lake Superior – 15,000 to 44,999 points
- Great Lakes – 45,000 or more points
Each of the tiers has different benefits. Those with the Lake Michigan card will earn $1 for every $300 spent on slot machines, while those with Lake Huron cards earn $2 for the same things. Lake Superior members get $3 for $300 slot play, and Great Lakes members get $4.
What makes this loyalty card system unique is that you earn comps as you play, and the money you earn can be used any time you want for food, beverages, golf, or rooms. Participants only need to show the cashier the card to use it at the register.
