(“you”) must be physically located within the State of Michigan.
1.2 By using the Gaming Services, you agree to allow American Wagering Inc.
(“us” or “we”) to verify your physical location at time of play, including

Device Location Service - Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Wifi
Q: Do I need to be connected to the Internet via WiFi to be located?
What if my device’s WiFi is enabled, but I’m connected to the Internet
via a wired connection such as an Ethernet cable?
You do not need to be connected to the internet via WiFi; you merely
have to have WiFi enabled on your device (and be able to see other
available WiFi networks). You can still be connected to the Internet
via an Ethernet cable and have WiFi enabled at the same time.
Q: Can I be accurately located by WiFi if I do not have other WiFi
networks around me?
In order to be accurately located using WiFi, your computer may need to
“see” other WiFi networks within range. The more WiFi networks around,
the more effectively we will be able to locate you. Dense, urban areas
typically have a higher concentration of WiFi networks.
Q: Can I be accurately located if I'm in a tall building?
If you are on a high floor of a tall building, the ability to
accurately locate you via WiFi may be compromised. Please ensure that
you are located as close to ground level as possible and that you have
multiple WiFi networks within range of your device.
Q: Can I be accurately located if I’m using a public WiFi hotspot?
Yes you can. However, please be aware that the Internet connections
provided by certain businesses or organizations may resolve to a
location outside of the State of Michigan, in which case you may have
to try accessing the Internet from a different location / connection.
