Current State of MI Online Gambling
Michigan has a great choice of casino games, and many of these locations have poker rooms. However, all casino gambling and poker have been strictly land-based until now. Like many states, horse racing betting is allowed and has been legal since 1993.
What’s most exciting is the state’s active legalization of sports betting. On Tuesday, December 10, 2019, Michigan’s Senate Regulatory Committee unanimously voted to move a package of gaming bills, including sports betting, to the Senate floor. And after ongoing negotiations with the governor, the tax rate for sports betting will be 8.4%.
It’s expected for MI residents to be able to start placing sports bets in 2020 – just in time for March Madness!
