Online Betting Not Yet Available at Ojibwa Casino Resort Baraga
Players who are interested in gambling online at Ojibwa Baraga will have to wait a little longer for confirmation. Michigan recently approved legislation that permits sports betting and online gambling.
In late 2019, the Michigan state government legalized online gambling and sports betting. By March 2020, retail sports betting was made available at casinos throughout the state.
