The Gaming Control Board has announced that they expect online gambling in Michigan will be live by the middle of this month. The Governor signed legislation which legalized sports gambling in the state late in 2019. Online gaming, however, had to establish it’s own regulations and licensing.
The legislature’s Joint Committee on Administrative Rules approved the needed regulations last month and waived the 15-day waiting period, allowing casinos and the Gaming Control Board to go to work on the licensing process immediately.
Fifteen casinos and their vendors have already been approved, including Gun Lake Casino in Wayland and the Four Winds Casinos across southwest Michigan. Firekeepers Casino in Battle Creek is still waiting for its license.
