The Michigan Gaming Control Board (“MGCB”) is encouraging Michigan citizens to become aware of the self-exclusion options available to gamblers during the month of March, which is designated as Problem Gambling Awareness Month by the National Council on Problem Gambling (“NCPG”). The Michigan Gaming Newsletter highlighted the efforts of industry associations and Michigan operators in Volume 27, Issue 9.

“Because online gambling is new to Michigan, we’re seeing heavy marketing and lots of excitement,” said MGCB Executive Director Rick Kalm in a press release. “There are many online gambling opportunities, and I hope Michigan residents are being careful about their choices and know their options if gambling is or becomes a problem for them.”

Responsible gaming tools available on every authorized internet gaming and sports betting platform in Michigan include:

  • Self-imposed gambling limits including deposits, wagers, and time-based limitations, which can be changed only with 24 hours’ notice
  • Signup options to prohibit establishing an account by visiting certain or all providers’ sites
  • Signup options to exclude oneself from internet gaming and/or sports betting by visiting certain or all providers’ sites
  • Notification on how to apply for the Michigan Gaming Control Board’s Responsible Gaming Database to prohibit establishing any online gaming or sports betting accounts or participating in online gaming and/or sports betting with all providers authorized in Michigan for one year or five years
  • Notification about the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (“MDHHS”) Gambling Disorder Helpline, 800-270-7117
