Online Gambling And Sports Betting Michigan

Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed legislation to legalize online gambling in Michigan in 2019. Michigan joins only a handful of states to legalize mobile sportsbooks as well as online casinos and online poker.

The Michigan Gaming Control Board is reviewing and approving licenses and anticipates the first online gambling apps will launch in early 2021. For more information on the latest status of online gambling in Michigan, see our news page.
