About Little River Casino Resort in Michigan

Little River Casino Resort in Michigan opened in 1999 following the signing of a compact between the state and Little River Band allowing a gambling operation on the reservation. Today, the casino has more than 23,000 square feet of gaming space and nearly 300 rooms at the adjacent hotel.

The gaming floor features more than 1,100 slot and video poker machines. Little River will frequently rotate through machines, so you’ll almost always have something new to try.

There are also dozens of table games running at Little River. Table games have a $1 minimum play and a $5,000 maximum.

You must be at least 18 years old to walk on the casino floor.

In addition to the retail casino, Little River also partnered with BetRivers Casino to operate an online gambling platform. By lifetime revenue, BetRivers is the fourth-biggest online casino in Michigan, trailing BetMGM, FanDuel, and DraftKings.

Guests who would rather stay at the RV park are welcome to do so, but the casino requests visitors planning this option to call in advance of their stay to confirm parking availability. There are also free electric vehicle charging stations for casino patrons.

Does Little River Casino Resort offer sports betting?

Yes, Little River Casino Resort offers MI sports betting. Little River Sportsbook is accessible 24/7 by going to one of the sports betting kiosks located at River Rock Sportsbook & Grill.

Additionally, you can prepare your bet slip in advance with the Bet Slip Builder mobile tool. Make your picks and decide on your wager amounts, then present the QR code at any of the three sports betting windows.

Wagers must be made with cash. All bet types have a $5 minimum stake. Parlays at the counter allow a maximum of nine legs while the digital kiosks allow up to 12 legs.

Partnership between Little River Sportsbook and Little River Casino Resort

Little River Casino Resort opted to establish its own sports betting product rather than partner up with an existing bookmaker. As such, the Little River Sportsbook is the best way to engage in sports gambling while at the casino.

The sportsbook opened in July 2020, becoming the fifth sports betting operation to open on tribal lands and the eighth to go live in Michigan. The bookmaking software runs through Rush Street Interactive, which also facilitates BetRivers Sportsbook MI.
