Michigan Legislature Sends Online Gaming, Sports Betting Bills To Governor

Online gaming and sports betting will soon be legal in Michigan after the legislature sent a package of bills to Governor Gretchen Whitmer on Wednesday.

The bills, which are expected to be signed by the governor, will allow casinos to offer online poker, blackjack, slots and other casino games online.

The legislation also will allow those casinos to create retail sportsbooks and accept wagers on games online.

“It’s been a long journey to move sports betting and casino-style gaming into a regulated, safe and modern environment, but the end is in sight, and with it a great opportunity for Michigan will begin,” Republican Representative Brandt Iden said.
