Your Source For Michigan Gaming News

Since 1997, the Michigan Gaming website has been a comprehensive resource regarding gaming in the state of Michigan. This site is an RMC Ventures, LLC publication, with contributions by the original creators of the site, Attorney David Waddell and Gaming Analyst Robert Russell, and additional contributions by Attorney J.J. Burchman.

Mr. Waddell,  Mr. Russell and Mr. Burchman are also associated with Regulatory Management Counselors, P.C., which proactively assists clients in managing regulatory issues in an effort to maximize company profits and avoid legal problems.

In a press release dated Friday, May 15, 2020, the MGCB announced that it had begun accepting online gaming supplier applications (both iGaming and Internet sports wagering suppliers).  The application forms are available in the MGCB website and can be found here.  The MGCB may issue provisional licenses for all suppliers other than platform providers.  Platform providers may submit their applications now, however, so as to be ready for licensure when the iGaming and Internet sports wagering rules have completed the rule-making process. 

The MGCB expects to have vendor registration forms and operator licensing forms available soon, but is waiting until it receives additional feedback on the proposed rules before finalizing those forms. 

“We’ve taken another step toward the launch of online gaming by beginning the licensing process,” said Richard S. Kalm, MGCB executive director. “The MGCB encourages suppliers to file applications soon so we can conduct investigations and issue provisional licenses, which are allowed under state law.”  Mr. Kalm also noted: “We continue to make progress on rule promulgation for internet gaming and online sports betting,” Kalm said. “While we expect to launch these forms of betting by early 2021, we hope it can happen sooner.”
