To participate in sports betting in Michigan, you must be of the legal gambling age of 21 years old or older. Sportsbooks request information regarding your birth date when you register and if they eventually ask for proof of documentation, you will have to provide it if you want to continue to use the site or cash out. If you are unable to do so, you can potentially be forced to forfeit all winnings and even pay back previously withdrawn winnings.
