Online gambling was recently made legal in Michigan. Joining the ever-growing number of states which have introduced legislation to regulate and establish a gambling industry, Michigan signed two new laws into effect in 2020. These laws, the Lawful Sports Betting Act and the Lawful Internet Gaming Act, are intended to make online gambling safer. They also provide a legal alternative to the offshore casinos and sportsbooks that many people in Michigan and other states have been using.
Although online gambling hasn’t launched yet, land-based gambling is available at tribal casinos. Online gambling is expected to go live by early 2021, although many details are still being worked out. Online casinos in Michigan will be one of the first online gambling platforms to launch, followed by sportsbooks and then online Poker.
