It's official: sports gambling is legal in Michigan, at least at Native American casinos, and Onyx Sports Bar inside Turtle Creek Casino on M-72 is open for business. Guests can stroll into Onyx and up to the window to place bets on everything from the Detroit Lions winning a game or the Detroit Tigers winning the World Series to NHL and NBA games and more. Onyx also includes more than 20 big screen TVs, complimentary video games, a full-service bar, and an outdoor patio.
The sports book is open via a partnership between one of the largest sports betting companies, William Hill US, and Grand Traverse Resort & Casinos. A second sports betting satellite location is also open at Leelanau Sands Casino.
Turtle Creek will host a Grand Opening celebration inside Onyx at noon on Wednesday, Sept. 23 , including an appearance by former Detroit Piston Rick Mahorn, drink specials, and prizes.
Onyx, located on the third level at Turtle Creek, is open Monday-Thursday noon-midnight, Friday-Saturday 10am-2am, and Sunday 1am-midnight.Comment
